home we go..

 

We had a quiet night at Burlington KOA..we even blew the dust of the propane fireplace and had a little campfire once the thunder and rain stopped. A couple shots of sambuca and we were done for the evening.

Our intention was to be up early this morning and get the trailer organized for our next trip..so that of course, included doing laundry among other things.

We managed to be on our way at 11:30 am..leaving our neighbours, Andrea and Cornell Schmidt behind to enjoy the beautiful sunny day..we met these fine people two years ago at the Burlington KOA..so imagine our surprise when we pulled in yesterday and they were parked right beside us..what a small world!!

Today is the last leg of this lovely holiday..we headed north on the I-5 and then took exit #255, Sunset Square, and headed east on W-542, through Whatcom County.

We then travelled west on Highway 1 towards Langley and the new Golden Ears Bridge..when we left home 16 days ago the toll was free..not so today..oh well it saves a lot of time!!

We managed to get "Freeway" parked at the storage lot in Pitt Meadows..as usual there is an issue to try and get down the driveway…welcome home…??
