Rockport, Texas Day 1 (GA373)

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

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Thunderbird RV Resort in Monroe, Washington. I’ll depart here June 25th.

 

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 January 20, 2013…

 

 

 

 

Yesterday we drove the motorhome the about 65 miles from Malaquite Beach to Rockport, Texas where we are parked at American Legion Post #363. I expect we’ll be here for 2-3 days…

San Juan Islands – 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.

 

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 Fidalgo Island.

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

 

 

Here are some photos I took of the San Juan Islands back in 2009…

Cut Bank, Montana

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…Cutback, Montana…

Skait Bay Presunrise #2

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort along the shore of Skagit Bay in LaConner, Washington. I’ve been here a number of times over the past years and always enjoy it here. It’s my favorite resort in the entire Thousand Trails system. My departure date is July 29th.

Mary is at home tending to personal matters…home maintenance, family, friends, rentals, etc..  She has made her flight reservations to meet me July 29th in Bellingham, Washington.

I’ve gotten lazy in my retirement. Usually only after publishing my daily blog, attending to my email, have breakfast…attend to my morning toilet and other miscellaneous items…do I head out to do my photography…during the worst time of the day for good results…under the harsh light of mid-day.

The other day though…I got off my lazy butt and got out early. I was in position where I wanted to be and shot during the precious 15 minutes before the sun came over the horizon.

Take the time to absorb and inhale the beautiful pastel colors in the below photos. They were shot in the Intelligent Auto Mode of my camera and lasted only a few moments before they were gone…
