Thousand Trails RV Resort – La Connor, Washington

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 21st year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

8/5/16 GRRR!

GOOGLE JUST DROPPED ALL PICASA WEB ALBUMS IN FAVOR OF GOOGLE PHOTOS WHICH I HATE! ALL OF OUR 4000+ BLOGS THAT HAD A PICASA WEB ALBUM INCLUDED NO LONGER ALLOW VIEWING THOSE PHOTOS! I SEE LITTLE CHOICE BUT TO LIVE WITH THE SITUATION.

—————————————————————————————————————

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in La Connor, Washington. I’ll depart here August 30th. I’ve been here a number of times in past years.

 

I’ll be hanging out in this general area until about the beginning of October, taking maximum advantage of my Thousand Trails membership and very agreeable weather.

 

Two days ago I arrived at this beautiful campground.

The park was probably built during the 1970’s and is located on land leased from the Swinomish Indian Tribe for 99 years. This area of Washington has always been one of my very favorite locations in all of the United States. The scenery is absolutely beautiful, the air is fresh and clean, it seldom gets too hot or cold, there are virtually no bugs or mosquitos and the people are very friendly. In 2001 and 2002 I worked here for the summer selling park memberships. I’ve been coming here for years and know the area very well. It’s my very favorite place to go to during the Summer…that’s why I keep returning.

Here’s a Google Earth view of the campground which is located on one-half mile of Puget Sound waterfront…

Yesterday was mostly sunny and 74 degrees. Forecast for today is mostly sunny and 77 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!
