On to Anacortes, WA and the Boat Basin
We traveled to Chehalis, WA to the Riverside Golf and RV Resort. This very nice golf course has a number of RV pads next door where we enjoyed the full hookups and the sight of the first fairway (on the other side of the protective net!). Rick had a great time playing a round of golf and the site worked out great.
We decided to check out Anacortes, WA on this trip, so tooled up I-5 past Seattle. Rick remarked that this was the first interstate he had been on for several weeks, after cruising up Hwy 101 on the Oregon coast. Anyway, we had no problem going through Seattle to the San Juan Islands.
The city of Anacortes is a beautiful place and focused on the ocean. This wonderful overlook gave us a bird's eye view of the entry to the harbor and of the San Juan Islands in the area.
The other side of the overlook gave us a view of the boat basin which is a very busy harbor for pleasure boats of all sizes.
We saw a number of boats coming and going from the harbor and enjoyed the great weather we were blessed with. This was one of the few days where the wind was not blowing as can be seen by the mirror-smooth water surface.
