Cape Disappointment North Jetty Near Ilwaco, Washington

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Long Beach RV Resort in Seaview, Washington. My scheduled departure date is July 10th.

Mary is dealing with her over-flowing to-do list plate which can only be handled by herself. The construction of Mary’s rental continues along…slowly. She now is hoping to rejoin me by early September.  😦

Last year I visited the North Jetty at Cape Disappointment near Ilwaco Washington. It’s part of the Cape Disappointment State Park which you can read about by clicking this Wikipedia link…http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cape_Disappointment_State_Park

I’ve been here in the Ilwaco area several times before and always enjoy this beautiful area.

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

Yesterday was a cloudy/sunny and 67 degrees. Forecast for today is cloudy/sunny and 66 degrees.

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!
