We left Port Angeles and Olympic National Park for the last time on Sat., 10-11. Linda had to get everything ready to go by herself, and she did a terrific job. We decided to take it slow and easy down Hwy. 101 to I-5, then on to our friends who live off Hwy. 12 on Lake Merwin near Mossy Rock. John was very careful, staying in the right lane and keeping a steady pace. His hip did well, but it was a relief to pull into Allen & Shari's driveway.
We stayed two nights and were treated like royalty. Shari made some great meals, starting with homemade Lasagna. Then the next morning she cooked a full breakfast with pancakes, bacon, sausage, and fruit. Linda was spoiled because she doesn't get a good breakfast often. On Sun. night it was a special chicken casserole that was outstanding.
The best part of the weekend was the wonderful relaxed setting with wonderful conversations. This was just what we needed after so many hours of just the two of us sitting in the rain & cold. We so appreciate the friends we've made through the Monaco Northwest group.
On Monday we left for Woodburn, OR, where we'll spend a few days visiting old friends and getting some goods where there's no sales tax.
