Labor Day weekend fun!

On the road again!!!!!

We left Everett Friday morning and headed east on I-90. The Snowqualmie Pass area is beautiful and fortunately we missed the worst traffic - not bad at all!

One of our first excursions with our friends Curt & Diane after we arrived was the Country Mercantile just north of Tri-Cities on Hwy. 395. If any of you travelers reading this blog go through this area, be sure and stop! They have wonderful local fruits and vegetables and the most amazing assortment of jams, sauces, dressings, salsas, candies, etc., etc. that you'll likely find anywhere! And, as an added bonus, their parking lot is very RV friendly.

On Saturday afternoon, we headed for the local county fair. If my memory is not too faulty, I think this is a little osprey.

The kids' tractor pull was a big hit and our little friend, Jesse, did an awesome job!

On our way home we stopped at one of the local wineries - aren't these grapes beautiful?

The rest of the weekend was spent shopping, watching movies and just hanging out. Thanks for everything, Curt & Diane!

  1. It's a American Kestrel or Sparrow Hawk (had to look it up). An Osprey is much larger and not as colorful. Awesome pics!
