Drove though Lassen National Park #38, beautiful Alpine meadows with hot mud pots and onto the coast again and into Oregon #31 . Followed the 101, smokey in places from wildfires. Had a tractor trailer go off the road right in front of us. Fortunately the driver was unhurt, cannot same the same for his rig though..
Stopped at Bullards Beach State park in Bandon for 2 nights and saw the eclipse from here… Had pretty decent fish and chips here too !~!~!
Into Washington State and I am in love with the coast here. Oregon and Washington , have decided this is where i am moving to, a home over looking the wild and rugged coastline that is just spectacular ! And a motorhome to travel…
Those are grey whales just off the beach, apparently very unusual to see them in so close to shore. But we met up with a Wildlife and Fisheries guy , who told us it was high tide and they were feeding on Razor Clams that were in abundance ! This is in Olympic NP #40, stayed in the Rain Forest … Still being amazed every day by the diversity of this great land.
Today we travelled by Ferry #1 from Port Townsend to Coupeville, All 3 of us first time on a ferry on this trip.
I have not talked much about the folks we have met on this trip. There have been so many , good and bad !!! Today we met a lovely girl from Dorset UK, now living in Seattle with her husband, then there was the German couple with their son outside of Yosemite. They were here on a house swap . An Aussie couple in Monument Valley.. the South Africans ( two very different couples ) at 2 different sites and so many more … Loving the way travel and camping/RVing brings people of all colour , gender, age and religion together ! And that is something Chris and I wanted to do with this trip. To spread peace, love , hugs and unity !
If you want to see even more photos, you can friend Chris on FB.
Lots of love 48beforeitstoolate.com
