When we left the beautiful state of Montana we questioned the best route to the state of Washington. We were hoping for less mountainous roads but alas we sought council
of Cousin Mike and he helped us through the MTS. and across to their lovely town of Sequim, WA (pronounced SQUIM). We were greeted by Mike, Jacquie, John and fluffy Sophie. They provided us with a great site to park our rig right next to their house with full hook-ups and protection. What a beautfiul part of Washington they live in.
Mike and Jacquie were the perfect hosts/hostesses and we enjoyed our first night at their home with a yummy Italian dinner and visiting. The next morning we went to a wonderful breakfast place . We had apple pancakes that were more like apple mountains drenched in brown sugar and butter. YUM! You had to split these. Laden with calories, we proceeded to sight- see for the day and enjoy all that Sequim had to offer. M and J took us to former places they had lived and we got to enjoy the lovely sites of their town and meet some of Jacquie’s cousins who were delightful. They were cleaning up debri from the previous day’s storm that had washed ashore complete with logs, fence posts, shells and seaweed. It reminded us of our Cape Cod after a storm only we didn’t have to clean it up.
Thanks to their John for watching Babi for us while we did touring.
The third and last day we began a trek to Bellingham, WA taking 2 car ferries and much driving to get to Jacquie’s family for a wonderful fresh Sockeye Salmon luncheon prepared on the barbecue. They were so nice and welcoming to us that we felt we had known them forever. Mike, Jacquie, and John–how nice for you all that you have such a great extended family to enjoy.
During our brief visit, my John used his computer knowledge to get help some bugs out of Mike’s ancestry programs online. Mike is doing our family tree (our Mom’s were sisters from the Dunn side) and also my father’s side (Russell) for me. Family members–please share your info with him and he will share back with you. He has worked diligently on this for years. Mike and son, John, also have a old coin/money online business. I brought some bills to have them evaluate for me but I promptly misplaced them in this RV. I will find them when I unpack in Florida I am sure. Thanks guys for a wonderful visit in Washington.
