Today I am celebrating 71 years of great living by enjoying a short camping trip at our place in Port Susan, WA. It’s a tough job but somebody has to do it 🙂
I’ll try to get back to walking around Coupeville in a day or so but in the meantime enjoy this photo I took of Mt. Baker from the Skagit Valley today.
I hope you are having a good week and we’ll walk again soon.
Hi Boys and Girls, I’m sorry for the absence but I got grounded, so to speak! I had mentioned earlier that my hip was really bothering me and had slowed my walking way down. After a visit to the doctor it turns out that I have “Trochanteric bursitis“. Damn I hate getting old 😉
The doctor recommended that I curtail my walking for a while, take it easy and let it heal. Needless to say I’m not very good at any of that but guess I’ll give it a try. In a couple of weeks I’ll slowly start walking and blogging again but in the meantime I’ll try to post things that I find interesting as the days go buy.
This past week we went to our camping place at Port Susan and supposedly “took it easy” while cleaning up our lot from the effects of winter and getting it ready for a summer of fun. While I’m sure it didn’t do my hip any good the place looks much nicer and we had a great time.
Here we are sitting and enjoying a mocha and a campfire at the end of a day.
We went to Marysville for dinner one evening and ate at the Mexican restaurant that we ate at the night we got married, fifteen years ago. In the parking lot I spotted these two really nice custom cars. The red one is a 1940 Chevy and the orange one is a 1941 Willys.
Back at Port Susan we drove around looking at other peoples campsite’s. This collection of gnome’s and other “stuff” in front of this shed made kind of a neat photo.
During the winter there must have been some big winds because this huge tree had blown down across the road. It had been cleaned up but I’m sure it snarled traffic for a while. What’s most amazing is that it missed a comfort station and a trailer by only about ten feet on each side.
Port Susan has a lot of rules to follow and one of them is that you must keep your lot tidy and in good condition. Some of the lots do not follow that rule and are fined. If the fines and leans against the property don’t do it then they can take back the lot and remove what’s there. In this case there was a trailer that is no longer there and the lot will soon be available to someone that will take better care of it. You can see the frame of the trailer in the background.
And while I was “taking it easy” I installed a bike rack on the back of our fifth wheel so when we travel I can now take my bike with me. I’m hoping it will get some use later on this summer.
Like I said in the beginning I’ll blog when I feel I have something interesting to share. In the meantime keep walking and I’ll catch up to you soon 🙂
