We recently attended one of our FMCA (Family Motor Coach Association) Lewis & Clark Chapter Rallies at Thousand Trails Paradise RV Campgrounds near Morton, Washington. There were approximately 50 members there.

|We met new friends including Judy and Denny,|
|His friend Gary told him "Joe you lost the Elvis look, but the new cut looks great, just like mine"|
|His friends were constantly amazed at his strength and stamina...|
|He pitched for 3 hours on two different days while he was there.|
|After a time of rest he was ready to go on to the next activity.|
|Paradise Campgrounds has two ponds that are stocked with trout. The fish license was $4.00 for the day. He didn't catch any fish but enjoyed the fun.|
|Fishing wasn't just for the guys. Nancy and a few other gals enjoyed fishing also.|
|Russ was the winner with three nice size trout.|
|We didn't tow our car this time but our "neighbors" Scott and Lois invited us to go for a ride to check out Taidnapam Park a forested campground with a popular fishing bridge on Riffe Lake (formed by Mossyrock Dam) in Lewis County. It is a beautiful campground.|
I took the following pictures on a walk around the campgrounds.
We went Highway 12 to Jackson Highway, then we hooked up to Highway 505, then 504
to Castle Rock, then we took 411 to Vader, Washington
|then Highway 506 to PeEll|
|We stopped and I made us a little lunch right in front of this old Jail House. There is a nice park behind it.|
|These beautiful flowers took up the whole front yard of this quaint little house.|
|Well look at this a field of mammoth marshmallows!|
|We took Highway 6 out of PeEll. I love barns, old or new.|
|We took Highway six all the way to Raymond|
|And that led us to Highway 101|
|I lived in Long Beach, Washington and this was one of my favorite places to stop.......|
|This is just a tiny portion of why we love the Cottage Bakery.|
After leaving Long Beach we got back on 101 and headed for Seaside, Oregon where we had a wonderful spagetti dinner at the Twisted Fish Steak House and from there we got on Highway 26 and headed home to Oak Grove. We got home about 8:15 that evening, tired but happy and ready to face more rounds of chemo.
Have a great rest of the week.
