Time to Move

As I posted a couple of weeks ago, we arrived at Thousand Trails/Leisure Time Crescent Bar resort near Quincy, Washington. The time spent there was an adventure in itself. The second night we were there, we had to evacuate because of the threat of a fire coming across the hillside. That turned out okay as the firefighters did a great job of containing the fire even with the great winds that were blowing that night.

There was a small grocery in Quincy and only a couple of restaurants so if we wanted anything or just wanted to get out and see what was around, we had to drive at least 30 miles east or west and don't look for any restaurants to be open on Sunday. The river was great if you owned a boat or a jetski. The sunsets were also pretty at different times.

This past Saturday night, there was another fire up on Hwy 28 which burned some of the main electric poles along with telephone lines. We were not evacuated this time; but, were without electric and water all day Sunday. The pool also had to be closed even after the electric was restored as there was no telephone coverage still. It is a Washington law that there must be a working telephone near the pool in case of an emergency. Cell coverage was hit and miss so it did not count for the phone. Would we go back, yes, but for only a few days at a time.

Today, we moved over to Moses Lake, which is about 30 miles from Quincy, Wa. We are staying at an ROD park called Sunrise Resorts, Pier Four right off of I-90. We are parked over by the boat ramp under some trees which was great today as the temp went up to 91. We made a trip over to Wal-Mart and picked up a few items, got the car washed as it was really dirty and stopped in a Golden Corral for a late lunch.

We took our chairs over by the river. We sat out watching 4 little girls play on a blow up raft that they had in the water, water skiers all over the place, jetskies and a guy with a wind sail trying to find the wind that never came up. There was a nice breeze blowing and it was wonderful. I also talked to my sister. That was great also.

Tonight is reality shows for me on TV and Russ has a baseball game on. What more could anyone ask for.

To all Take Care until next time.
