Newport, Washington (GA615)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.

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 19, 2013…

 

 

 

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 35 miles from Sandpoint, Idaho to Newport, Washington.

 

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

 

The traffic continued light along Highway 2…

 

First thing yesterday morning we had a visitor. I took her silhouette photo…

Yesterday morning it rained until about 9:30 AM and the traffic remained light along highway 2…

We crossed into the State of Washington about 10:30 AM…

First stop was at the Pend Orille County Historical Museum where I took this shot up Washington Street…

Next we went to a local Mexican restaurant where we met up with Jim Davison and his wife Sharon. I’ve not seen Jim in over ten years when we were both members of the WIN RV Singles Group. Jim and i were part of a small caravan that spent six months during the winter of 2001-2002 in Baja California, Mexico. It was nice to see an old friend once again…

It was only about another 12 miles to Thousand Trails Little Diamond RV Resort where we spent the night…

Here’s the usual dinette window photo…

Yesterday was cloudy with occasional rain showers and windy. High temperature for the day was 67 degrees.

 

Forecast high temperature for today is 71 degrees and sunny.

 

We’ll continue our westward travel later this morning.

 

Enjoying seeing old friends is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Florence To Newport, Oregon

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.

 

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 50 miles from Florence to Newport, Oregon. I’m parked at Thousand Trails Whalers Rest RV Resort a few miles south of Newport. I’ve stayed here a number of times in past years.

I moved to the west coast in 1979 and over the years have driven the coast road numerous times and quite thoroughly explored the area. I plan to depart from here later this morning.

 

The photos in today’s blog are from some of those past years…

Newport, 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…Newport, Washington…

Historic Bay Front Of Newport, Oregon

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Whalers Rest RV Resort about six miles south of Newport, Oregon. I’ve been here several times before and plan to depart here later this morning.

Mary is dealing with her over-flowing to-do list plate which can only be handled by herself. I’m hoping she will be able to rejoin me sometime after July 4th.

In 2011, Mary and I spent a couple of enjoyable hours wandering the historic bay front of Newport, Oregon including the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse activated in 1871, at 38 feet high, it sits atop a small hill and is identified as the shortest lighthouse on the Oregon coast. Along the bay front are active fish/shrimping boats with associated processing plants, many restaurants and souvenir shops. In addition, numerous nautical murals on buildings and old paintings abound. All colorful, they offer numerous photographic opportunities.

Here’s a Google Earth view of the area…

 

Here are 12 photos that I took…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To see the other 42 photos I took, click the below photo and the slideshow…

Newport, Oregon

I hope you enjoyed the photos!

Yesterday was sunny at 63 degrees. Today’s forecast is cloudy/sunny and 73 degrees. At Mary’s home today is forecast at 100 degrees and 102 tomorrow! Makes me know why I am here!
