We started the day 180 miles from home. Things looked good, weather-wise.
But as you get closer to Snoqualmie Pass, things deteriorate.
As we approached the pass, things got wet.
By the way, take a look at the right hand lane, as we crossed over Snoqualmie Pass.
Do you know what a road that messed up feels like in a 26,000 pound recreational vehicle? Let’s just say that I got airborne in my crate on numerous occasions – and the sound of the rig disintegrating was somewhat unnerving.
We were up in the clouds, pups.
We finally descended down the west side of the Cascades.
We got to within 20 miles of Downtown Seattle.
We cut through the east side, barreling through Downtown Bellevue, finally seeing slightly improved weather (temps in the low 60s … Dad always gets frustrated that summer starts so late in the Pacific Northwest).
Around noon, we entered Anacortes, and closed in on our final destination.
At the toll both, we were assessed a nominal fee to put the RV on the ferry. Notice that the weather is improving.
I got to sit in Mom’s seat for the duration of our voyage.
We finally arrived in Friday Harbor!
Let’s be honest – town was lookin’ pretty good!
We followed a fellow recreational vehicle fanatic home.
We arrived home at 3:20pm this afternoon – Dad found a foot of grass covering the front lawn, but just about everything else looked pretty good, pups. Mom and Dad spent three hours unloading the rig. Tomorrow morning, Dad puts the rig on the 5:45am ferry – he should be home by late-morning. And with that, our excursion comes to an end.
We relaxed this evening. Mom made Tacos, Dad snapped photos of the sunset. This one was at 10:16pm.
Tomorrow, I’ll put a wrap on our grand adventure. It’s a can’t miss episode!
