Historical Museum – Port Gamble, 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

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

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.

 

(Note: I’m currently a little discombobulated right now. My normal mode is to blog what I experienced yesterday. Right now, I’m a number of blogs behind my experiences. I expect to be back in my normal mode in about a month.)

 

 

Today’s subject…

About one month ago, I went to Port Gamble, Washington. While there I visited the General Store. In the cellar of the General Store, there is the Historical Museum.

 

Here are some photos that I took…

Orcas Island – Washington

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.

 

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. 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.

 

 

Yesterday’s blog posting was about the San Juan Islands.

One of the most enjoyable things to do in this area is take a day trip on the Washington State Ferry System and wander among the San Juan Islands, just west of Fidalgo Island and Anacortes.

 

In 2011, Mary and I took the Bronco on a day trip to Orcas Island.

Here are some photos I took of the Orcas Island during that day trip…

As I travel, many folks ask me…”Where’s your favorite place?

I answer…Every place has its own beauty, if you are willing to look for it. However, if someone were to point a gun at my head and say you must pick one place and stop traveling…it would be Anacortes, Washington.

Of course, the rain begins around October 1st, so that’s why I start South about that time of the year. There is no absolute perfect place. If there is, I’ve not found it.

Flashback In Time To East Kingston, New Hampshire

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.

Today’s subject…

Flashback to East Kingston, New Hampshire…

 

I seldom dream. If I do, they are generally “wierd” or really good movie-like which I wish I could remember sufficiently so I could write a screen play and get really rich. 🙂

Last night was different. I dreampt about a place in lived in more than 50 years ago. 1964 in East Kingston, New Hampshire, where my son Jim was born 52 years ago.

Anyways, the reason I’m writing about this today is that it’s the first time I can remember dreaming that can be supported by photos that I’ve taken. These photos were taken during my first circumnavigation of the United States in 1996-1997.

 

The below Google earth image shows downtown East Kingston as seen in 2016 with a population of about 2,300. Back in 1965, it was more likely around 500. It’s located in the SouthEast corner of New Hampshire. #1 is the General Store and #2, the railroad depot…

This is the house we lived in. I don’t remember it being this nice 30 years earlier. Directly to the left of the house was a huge strawberry patch. We used to sell them on a roadside table for $0.50 a quart…

I lived in this house in East Kingston, NH from 1962 to 1964.

 

 

 

 

It got really cold in the winter. I remember a New Year’s Evening visiting friends and the radio said it was -28 degrees. I had a Volkswagen back in those days and there was no garage. I used to have to take the battery out of the car and put in next to the stove for the night. Then I had an electrical oil stick to keep the oil warm and then covered the engine with a blanket…

The General Store was about one mile down the road. I’m remembering only one gas pump back then…
