HALFWAY UP WASHINGTON STATE

On the beach at Pacific City, Ore

Lunch time at Hug Point, Oregon coast
We were pleasantly surprised with a bit of sun this morning so we walked out for a view of the ocean. We did have showers off and on all day though as well as some nice sunny spells. It was after 9:30 when we got on the road this morning. One of the drawer slides had broken and I spent some time on my belly with the help of Aileen on the outside and a flashlight, mirror and screwdriver from under the sink alongside, I was able to remove the drawer. Now to find the replacement part. We stopped at a hardware store and an RV parts place without finding one today.
We are in Hoquiam, Washington tonight after amassing 284 kms. Aileen did a big load of laundry, the first since leaving Caliente. Tomorrow night we will be in Port Angeles and will have to set the alarm as we have to be at the ferry dock before 7:30 AM Wednesday.
Our plans are now formulated for the first few days on Vancouver Island. Wednesday afternoon will see us visit Richard, Robin and Georgia. Thursday we will move up to Parksville to visit Mom and Dad. On Friday we will move up to Campbell River area in preparation for Gloria’s service on Saturday. After that, who knows?
