La Conner To Monroe, Washington

 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 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 65 miles from La Conner to Monroe, Washington. The motorhome is now parked at Thousand Trails Thunderbird RV Resort along the bank of the Skykomish River. I’ve been here a number of times over the past years and always enjoy it here. My scheduled departure date is September 24th.

 

 

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

 

 

I’ve marked the below Google Earth image in yellow to show my camping spot along the river. It is not a real-time image. This was taken the very end of March…in reality now the park is almost filled to capacity with RV’s…

Time To Head In A Southerly Direction…

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. I’ll depart here later this morning.

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!

Time to head in a southerly direction…
As the last week of September arrives…it’s time for me to go. This departure marks the end of a delightful, peaceful and relaxing summer in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. So, this morning I’ll point the motorhome south to begin my slow transition to southern California and Arizona where I will once again hide from the cold winter’s temperatures. My currently scheduled reservation for Thousand Trails Palm Springs RV Resort in California is December 2nd.

As I’ve said a number of times in the past…it’s a lousy job, but someone’s got to do it!  🙂

The below photos are of the last day here at Thousand Trails RV Resort along the Skykomish River…

Sunrise At Skykomish River – Monroe, Washington

The motorhome is 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 July 20th.

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.  😦

I’m an early to bed…early to rise kind of guy. Yesterday morning at around 5:30 AM, I noticed a morning mist hanging over the Skykomish River here at the RV park. So I grabbed my camera and went out to take a few photos. To get down to the river level I went via a rarely used boat launch ramp at the end of the road…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

 

A gazebo sits atop the higher bank and the boat ramp goes down on the right…

Back at the top of the boat ramp all of the along-the-river campsites are occupied…

Very early morning and very late afternoon frequently gives the best opportunity for some nice photos because of the severe side lighting as opposed to the direct overhead light of mid-day.

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

Yesterday was a cloudy/sunny and 78 degrees. Forecast for today is cloudy/sunny and 76 degrees.
