Camping at Thousand Trails La Conner
We arrived back in California in April, so what’s up with this late post? May saw the Trippin’ Engles up in Oregon for two months to prepare my dad’s house for sale. He passed away on December 31st, and we had already started a few things to get the house ready to sell. While we were gallivanting between Florida and California on our way to Oregon my brother had the house re-roofed and we ordered all new appliances for the kitchen. We arrived in Eugene on April 30th and worked on the house through July 8th.
We had some great help – our cousin’s son did a home inspection for us and my nephew came up from Ashland to help paint during these first weeks in Eugene.
Take a break, Jeff & Christine!
By the third week of June we were FRIED and ready for a vacation. Both of our daughters and their families met us up in La Conner to spend a week recharging our batteries and spend time with the grandkids.
La Conner Thousand Trails is on the Puget Sound north of Seattle on the Swinomish Indian Reservation and a perfect place to reset our brains. I was able to spend some time flying the drone with a captive cast and a beautiful scenery backdrop.
Nestled between the Olympic Mountains and the Canadian Coast range on the west and the North Cascades on the east and the Puget Sound all around we were in heaven! On top of that we had absolutely perfect weather.
Christine bought an inflatable kayak on one of her visits to our cabin outside of Louisville New York and the weather was perfect for us to put it in the water for its maiden cruise (too many ‘gaters in Florida according to Christine). Christine had also gotten an inflatable paddle board and it was time for it to get wet too.
Here’s our beach video at the boat ramp:
We have more to share of our stay at La Conner – we wanted to get this video off and to let you know that we are still around and kicking!
We have great internet now so watch for more soon!
