Long Beach Peninsula

Travato on Long Beach ~ Great way to spend a beach afternoon!

We enjoyed the Long Beach Peninsula last weekend! And, yes, it was sunny the whole time!

Highlights (besides being able to use Travato on the beach as our “beach house” one afternoon)…

Where we stayed: Long Beach RV and Camping Resort

What we saw: Cape Disappointment State Park ~ which is NOT a disappointment!

Where we ate: Salt Hotel and Pub ~ So good we went back the next day!

 

Fidalgo Island

We are saying goodbye to Fidalgo Island today. We have enjoyed using Anacortes as a home base to explore the San Juan Islands and Salish Sea area of the Pacific Northwest. We had also rented a beach front home over the holidays to host our family and friends. These pictures are of our last sunset and sunrises the last two days. We will miss this view! We are very thankful for the time we had here!

 

 

 

Lopez Island

This past weekend we explored Lopez Island. In the past month we have traveled to three of the San Juan Islands…Orcas, San Juan, and now Lopez. We enjoyed them all and would return to any of them. However, Lopez really stands out! Some of the nicest beaches we have seen in the area! Especially if you enjoy beach combing as much as we do…agates, shells, and sea glass!!

Since it is winter, Spencer Spit State Park was closed. We enjoyed Agate Beach County Park, Upright Channel State Park, and Odlin County Park. Odlin Park has some waterfront RV parking, too!

Introducing Travato

2018 Winnebago Travato 59K

Yes, we bought a Class B Camper Van! We are beyond thrilled and extremely thankful!

 

We bought it on Saturday and already went on our first adventure in it across five states! We flew into Ohio, landing in falling snow. Purchased it slightly used from a dear RV friend. Then drove through Kentucky to Tennessee where we visited some friends in Nashville. Then through Arkansas and arrived late last night in Texas.

Wings is still in the family! Our oldest daughter now owns Wings. We could not totally part with our first RV. We are grateful for the past two years of amazing adventures in Wings!

B-Class Camper Vans

BClass

After a couple years of researching online and looking at the outside of them on the road and at various campsites, we actually spent some time the past two days looking at them up close. We also looked at one smaller C Class (for comparison purposes…laughs).

We liked the E-Trek features of certain Roadtrek models, they are like the ultimate boondocking B Class. And we love to boondock! We like the windows and open feeling of the Winnebago Travato.  Windows are important! We like the work station feature and the general appearance of the Airstream Interstate.  Then they showed us the Pleasure-Way Lexor!  We had not really considered a Pleasure-Way prior to today. Certainly a very nice B Class!  Ultimately any of them would work well!

If you own a B Class, we’d love to hear about your experiences…pros and cons, thoughts, and suggestions!
