AN INTERESTING MAN FROM TACOMA, WASHINGTON

A friend sent me an email about this guy from Tacoma, Washington. Jim and I had a similar experience at Salt Creek Campground near Joyce, Washington. This is a short and very neat video.

Here is the picture I took at Salt Creek in September of 2014:

We experienced the same emotions and respect and the whole campground came to attention.

Salt Creek Campground Near Joyce, Washington

Yesterday I drove the 35 miles from Sequim to Salt Creek Campground about 15 miles west of Port Angeles, Washington. We will depart later this morning.

The below Google Earth image shows our camping location marked by the “X”. Through our front windshield we can see Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada 10 miles across the Strait of Juan DeFuca…

Salt Creek Campground Near Joyce, Washington

At 7:33 PM was a most unusual happening…

In all my 50 years of RVing this has never happened. The camp host stood atop a small rise and with his Bugle sounded the most beautiful TAPS I’ve ever heard in my life. The whole campground came to a stop. Mary happened to be outside and took this photo…

I took the time to meet Bill “Bubba” Hughes, an ex-Marine who told me he has been doing this for a number of years. Thanks for your service, Bill!

A very emotional moment for a Veteran!

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

With regards to my upcoming cataract surgery..my pre-op exam and consultation is set for September 29 at the VA Hospital in Palo Alto, California…surgery is scheduled for October 9th.

Yesterday was a sunny day at 67 degrees. Forecast for today is sunny and 65 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!
