We haven’t stepped outside the motorhome for the last two days but we’ve sure been busy! I’ve been studying the calendar and making reservations for our summer travels. We usually don’t like to be tied up to a schedule if we can avoid it, but since we plan to be on the Oregon and Washington coasts where RV sites are at a premium, we have to plan ahead.
As it is now, we have reservations at the Whaler’s Rest Thousand Trails near Newport, Oregon July 7 -21 and then at the Long Beach, Washington Thousand Trails August 4 – 25. That leaves a two week hole between leaving one and arriving at the other, and hopefully we’ll spend that at the Seaside Thousand Trails Resort in Seaside, Oregon. But reservations can only be made 90 days in advance during their high use period so I’ll have to wait until next week to try to nail that one down.
This will put us in Long Beach during the Washington State International Kite Festival, which we first attended two years ago. That’s the event that got me hooked on kite flying, and while I’ll never be as good as some of the folks who go there every year, I’m looking forward to going back again. There’s not a better place for flying than the Pacific Northwest coast. And the seafood’s good, too!
Meanwhile, back at the loom, here is Miss Terry’s latest shawl, which she finished yesterday afternoon. It’s about 78 inches long plus the fringe, and I love the color combination. I think it’s my favorite one yet.
All that talent and she’s gorgeous too!
Besides planning our trip and making reservations, I also got another 3,500 words done in my next Big Lake book. It’s getting down to the wire and I’m getting excited about wrapping it up. But at the same time, I have to throttle my eagerness back so I don’t rush things at the end.
Hopefully we’ll get a call today telling us that the new issue of the Gypsy Journal has arrived at the freight dock in Phoenix so we can pick it up and start stuffing envelopes. And hopefully the post office will call to tell us the stamps we ordered have come in. We’d like to get the new issue in the mail before we leave here on Sunday.
Congratulations to Paul Sansaver, the winner of our drawing for an audiobook of Death On The Pedernales by George Wier. We had 109 entries this time around. Stay tuned, because a new contest starts soon!
