Coulee City, Washington (GA617)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.

I’m currently in my 24th year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click here

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Lake Minden RV Resort in Nicolaus, California. I’m scheduled to depart here May 9th.

 

 

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

This entry was posted September 21, 2013…

 

 

 

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 87 miles from Airway Heights to Coulee City, Washington.

 

We continued traveling along U.S.Highway 2 West.

 

The traffic continued light along Highway 2…

Yesterday was a sunny/cloudy day. High temperature for the day was 80 degrees.

 

Forecast high temperature for today is 73 degrees and sunny.

 

We’ll continue our westward travel later this morning.

 

Enjoying city park campgrounds is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Coulee City, Washington

The motorhome is now parked at Thousand Trails Thunderbird RV Resort along the bank of the Skykomish River in Monroe, Washington. I’ve been here a number of times over the past years and always enjoy it here. My scheduled departure date is September 23rd.

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

Mary’s personal to-do list plate, which can only be handled by herself, continues to over-flow. I’ll next likely see her when I arrive at her home in mid-October. A friend recently expressed a concern about the status of our relationship. Not to worry…it continues to function per our original agreement when we met in October, 2008. That is…I remain on the road and she will join me when her other life allows. We talk every day on the phone…sometimes more than once. It’s just the way life is!

A more relaxed mode…After our 682 day on-the-go 2011-2013 circumnavigation of the United States, I have decided to slip into a more relaxed mode. In the next few months I will be traveling through areas previously explored. Unless I do something unusual, this Blog will feature a photo album from the circumnavigation and will change daily.

Today’s Subject…Coulee City, Washington…

When we came to the Columbia River, we turned south towards Wenatchee, Washington, the apple capital of the world. The Washington Apple Commission Visitors Center is closed on the weekend so we missed it…

In Wenatchee both the motorhome and Bronco got an oil change…

DSC06883

Only a 12 miles away we stopped at the Cashmere Museum which has a no photography rule. It looked like a nice museum, but since I could do no photography I had little interest in it. I decided that in the future I will no longer patronize places that do not allow photography since that is my primary enjoyment of a place. The below photos were taken either in the gift shop or outside…

EASTERN WASHINGTON, COULEE CITY

DSC01108 (Copy)

As we traveled through Eastern Washington State, the small hills and trees gave way to plains.DSC01121 (Copy)

We drove through miles and miles of dry farming, wide expanses with hardly a house visible. DSC01113 (Copy)

I enjoyed picking out the plow marks in the fields. This was taken through the windshield through the drivers side of the road.

Kind of reminds me of that old western song, “…bury me on the lone prairie.”  Even though this area was never technically prairie.

DSC01136 (Copy)

As we got closer to Coulee, the results of the dam became evident. Irrigated fields and occasional swaths of bright green. DSC01137 (Copy)

Small towns kind of stuck in the 1950’s it seemed to me. Like the Ala Cozy Motel.

DSC01141 (Copy)

We are camped at Baker lake at Coulee City Park. The lake was formed by Baker Dam, many years ago. The Coulee Dam is about 25 miles from this little city and we decided not to visit.

DSC01143 (Copy)

We walked out to a promontory, watched the ducks, looked over the swimming area and boat launch then retired to the motor home and watched an old video after dinner, Absence of Malice.

DSC01104 (Copy)

I guess the most exciting part of our day was the fruit we ate in place of a salad. I bought a jack fruit.

DSC01105 (Copy)

I hadn’t tasted one before. It slices nicely. The red peel comes off easily with your fingers. It is sweet and tasty. I think its appeal is the color and the exoticism. The market peaches and pears are superior right now. Better, and closer to home.
