From La Conner Thousand Trails RV & Camping Resort, we drove to Coupeville Ferry Terminal. We were on the standby lane and didn't get on the first Ferry but we got on the next one. But because of that, we were able to explore Fort Casey State Park. Here's the link to that adventure A Ferry Ride to Port Townsend From Coupeville  When we arrived at Port Townsend it was late in the afternoon so we decided to spend a night in the area. We drove to Port Angeles and checked in at the Riviera Inn. Nothing special with the Inn but it was clean, cheap, and it suffice our need for the night. The next day, we checked out early from the Inn, got our breakfast, then head up Hurricane Ridge Olympic National Park. We stopped at the Overlook-Victoria B.C. From there I made a reservation for the Ferry back to Coupeville. The Ferry was full until the 5:15pm sailing time, so I went ahead and made that reservations.  We had a nice drive up to Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center.  Here's the lin

We left Willow's Spring Resort around 8:08 in the morning of June 16, 2020. A few miles down the road is the town of Clinton. Nice little town, too bad we can't explore due to Covid-19. Going in to the town of Williams Lake Our first stop was at Williams Lake rest area and had our breakfast there. Pretty nice area with rest rooms, picnic tables, garbage dump, and view of the lake.  Our breakfast Eating our breakfast and enjoying the view of Williams Lake Around 12:20 We had to take a quick stop in Quesnel to take pictures of the huge gold pan.

After our not so fun trip to the Philippines due to Covid-19 pandemic and got locked down in home quarantine for two months, we are finally back to the US. We stayed in Washington for 2 weeks before we took our trip to Alaska through Canada. We left Sumas Washington and entered Canada Border around 1130 am of June 15, 2020. It took few minutes to get through the security. There were so many questions and the security was trying to see if we are essential travelers due to Covid-19. But they've finally let us in since we are going back home to Alaska. However, I had to throw out my plants. I didn't know that I can't take soil to Canada but it's good though. Just bought those plants from Fred Meyer.  After a few feet away from the border, we got stopped by Provential Health check security staff of the Province of British Columbia who monitored people coming in and driving through their province. We agreed to register with them so they can monitor us and to make sure we are

We are now out of -30 degree Fahrenheit temperature, from a cold weather Fairbanks Alaska to the Evergreen State Washington. Although the weather here is not that warm but it's a lot warmer compared to Fairbanks. We left Fairbanks the night of January 16th. When we arrived in Seattle we rented a vehicle big enough to haul our all our luggage. On our way to Bellingham, there was a  lot of slushy snow on the roads. We arrived in Bellingham around 530am.  The storage  facility where we left our motorhome was not plowed. Joel tried to drive through the snow but got stuck. He ended up buying a shovel and had to shovel for over an hour just to get his way out of the storage facility. He was tired after all that flying, driving, then shoveling the snow. After we bought stuff we needed in Costco and returned the rental car to the airport, we drove down to Thousand  Trails in La Conner. This is where we are going to be for a few days. Flying over Seattle  Our luggage Our J
