June: Drive to Washington State...
|Redding, CA. Despite the name, we didn't stay here. We stayed at the Thunderbird down the street, and it served us just fine. We rolled in at 2am with no reservation; they were dog-friendly and the room was clean.|
|Heavenly Donuts, Redding, CA. The donuts were heavenly, the breakfast bagel was not.|

Hanging out with family for a few days in La Conner.

Brief Ritchlips Road Trip (a few more photos here on Instagram).
|Ice for sale (for beer and fish), Nordland/Marrowstone, WA. Across the street from this is one of the most comprehensive and well displayed General Stores I've ever visited.|
|Former site of the Elwha dam, a must-see destination for restoration tourists like ourselves. This is the largest dam removal site in US history.|
|Enormous driftwood at South Beach, Olympic National Park.|
July: Back home with visitor Mabel.
Special visitors from ABQ.
August: Back to Work. The ring holds up to gardener work.
Go hang out in Canada for a week.
|Yes, we had our limousine driver stop at McDonald's. The good times were only beginning!|
Late August: Move.
|Original reservation with U-Haul: check out truck at 8am, return by 9pm. Reality: We returned the truck at 6:56am after pulling an all-nighter of packing as we moved. Lessons were learned!|
