Okay, so I haven't been very diligent with this. That was not my intention when I started. I know I'm not that committed so I guess that is the problem. Committment, Ha Ha Ha. Being committed is the big problem. I don't remember when I posted before and am not sure it matters. We are having a great time and have seen a lot of things in the last 2 months, met a lot of great people and have joined The Catalina Spa and RV Park in Desert Hot Springs, California. I do want to catch up and fill in the blanks but will start tomorrow. Right now, I am going to head up to the pool to see what Jim and the others are doing. While in Tillamook, we spent time with a nice couple from Sylvan Lake, Alberta. Don and Sheila Williams. They took us on a short road trip on Sunday and we saw a lighthouse and The Christmas store in Lincoln City. That little store was jam packed with Christmas decorations. Amazing! Lots of different things. We then went to the Casino for dinner with them.
When we left Tillamook, we travelled all day basically until we got to Floras Lake which is a small lake just next to the sand dunes and then the beach to the ocean.
On the way we saw a lot of the ocean and stopped at a casino to eat breakfast.

We left Barrhead on Tuesday Oct. 14 and headed west. Stopped in Edson to wash clothes and do some banking etc. A quick stop in Hinton for fuel and Jasper to go for a walk on main street. Headed out again and ended up at Valemount, BC. Spent the night there in the parking lot of a large motor inn. Left early in the morning and headed toward Kamlopps where we stopped off the highway for lunch. Decided to go to Scotch Creek to the campsite there where Barry and Anne have their park model. We had heard that the salmon run was fantastic so felt we should not miss it.

The road down this coast is narrow and very winding. Tree lined at the north end and as you get further down there are areas that are right on the coast next to the sea. Amazing sights to see. Were able to observe some native fishermen and their families netting Chum salmon at Hoodsport, early in the morning as the sun was rising.
Beautiful sandy beach as Seaside and huge rocks and waves just south of Cannonball.
Drove over the Columbia River bridge at Aberdeen. Huge!
On to Tillamook and have stayed 3 nights. Plan to stay one more as we have parked in The Ashley Inn lot and are hooked up to power, can use their pool and have breakfast and coffee all day for $20.00 a night. There are a few things to see here and may do that. Met a couple from Sylvan Lake and spent happy hour twice with them. Today, they are going to take us in their car to do a bit of sightseeing. It is a bit difficult to do without a smaller vehicle.
