La Conner To Bow, Washington

Yesterday I drove the 22 miles from La Connor to the Thousand Trails Mount Vernon RV Resort located in Bow, a few miles north of Mount Vernon, Washington to begin a one-week stay. I’ve been here several times in past years. My membership allows a maximum of a three-week stay, out for one-week and then you can return to the first park.

I’m just hanging out taking maximum advantage of my Thousand Trails membership and very agreeable weather.

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.  😦

Bow, Washington has a population of 6,099, and as a child, the famous CBS news correspondent Edward R. Murrow lived here.

The below Google Earth images show the relative locations. The upper right is Bow and lower left is La Conner which I’ll move back to after my one-week stay here…






While the campground appears to be near Interstate Highway 5, it is buffeted heavily by beautiful tall fir trees. Only a little very low highway noise can be heard when the wind is out of the west…


On my way here yesterday, I stopped to get some propane for the motorhome. I paid $1.29 a gallon…the lowest price I’ve paid in years!

I’ll show some photos of this campground tomorrow.

Yesterday was a sunny and 79 degrees. Forecast for today is sunny and 73 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!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!

  1. Is it too early to start picking the blackberries there? When we were there, I could go out the door and gather enough for breakfast in about five minutes. This went on for several weeks. We did the La Conner to Mount Vernon Shuffle for several iterations – until they closed down Mount Vernon for the season. Really love the area.

      Due to the lack of rain in this area, the blackberries are smaller and not quite as delicious and abundant as normal. Darn!
