GETTING IN TOUCH WITH NATURE -- Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves
of strength that will endure as long as life lasts." ~ Rachel Carson
Yesterday was day 24 of our travels and today marks 24 more days of travel before we can move back to our house on Decatur Island for the winter/spring.
The sun is making a rare and oh so welcome appearance today. Colors are brilliant under the light. More rain is coming tomorrow and for much of the week, but today is delicious. I can hear sea lions from inside the RV. We'll be heading to Long Beach, Washington shortly for propane and water. It's about a half hour away. I'll look for another place to camp for the night over there.
The Astoria–Megler Bridge is a truss bridge spanning the Columbia River from Astoria, Oregon to Point Ellise, Washington and is the longest continuous truss bridge in North America. We boondocked for the night right across from a trail that runs along the shore called the Riverwalk.
Cooper got his run on today!
There was a wide, flat stretch of beach in Washington and no one was nearby. He got to run full speed. What pure joy it was to watch!
Path to the beach.
Mushrooms were sprouting along the path to the beach.
Travels With Mom
I'm traveling in a 24' RV with my 96-year old mother who is six months into recovering from a broken hip. And, of course, Cooper is with us. He's my 9+ year old rescue dog. We're mostly boondocking across the west coast of the United States.
