Awakening this morning to gray skies, we figured this must be the first day of winter. So grateful we had the opportunity to visit Rainier in the sunshine! As we were preparing to depart three deer came through a neighboring site on their breakfast circuit. From Alder we headed northwest onto the Olympic Peninsula as we pondered strategies for our upcoming anniversary and for the fast approaching Labor Day weekend, one of the very busiest camping weekends of the year. We started with a plan to try to get a site at the National Park campground at Kalaloch Beach for one or two nights then move to Salt Creek County Campground near Port Angeles to see if we could score a walk-in site through Sunday night. But with a bit of online poking, we discovered that we could get a reservation for the three night weekend for a reasonable price at the Port Angeles KOA! At Kalaloch Campground it took a bit of searching but we did find Site #D2, an unreserved site available for three nights! And then it took quite a bit of finessing to get the T@B situated and stable. This campground dates back several decades to a time when most camping was in tents and RVs were tiny by today’s standards. The paved portion of our site slopes down from the road so we had to chock the wheels and scavenge material for under the rear stabilizers. Once that was accomplished we could relax with a long stroll on the magnificent Pacific beach that is Kalaloch and celebrate the fact that we don’t have to move until Friday! We met Sherry & Buff from north of Seattle, some fellow teardrop campers. Their’s is one that Buff built and it’s handsome! We stood around swapping stories as night fell around us. They assured us that there’s still a few more weeks of summer left. After dark we wandered back home to tuck ourselves into our oh so comfortable little gypsy wagon for the night.

All Because of an Eclipse

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
