    We use to publish a monthly newsletter but decided to step up and do a blog instead. Just like our newsletter we will update this "newsletter" about once a month.
    Each month we bring you news from our little town of Coupeville, WA and happenings around the island we live on.
    We hope you enjoy our blog and we'd encourage you to sign up for email notification since it doesn't update all that frequently.

Day 9 – On The Road Again

After a wonderful time at Glacier National Park we are once again on the road. Yesterday we drove from Glacier Park to the Thousand Trails Little Diamond Lake Campground just outside Newport, Washington.

The trip was uneventful and an enjoyable drive of about 250 miles. Once again we saw lots of beautiful country as we traveled the older Highway 2 instead of the interstate. It’s slower going and more hilly but that’s where the beauty comes from.

We made one stop along side the road for lunch and that was it. We drove across Idaho and passed into the Pacific Time Zone so we set our clocks back an hour. That allowed us to arrive an hour earlier than planned.

The campground here is quite hilly, very wooded, extremely quiet and a long ways away from trains, towns and traffic, perfect! The camp sites are on a “pick your own” basis so we drove around and found a really nice spot high up on the hill. It’s so wooded that there isn’t an view but the trees are nice to look at.


The campground has rental boats and a lake that we’ve rowed on before so may give that a try one of these days. We probably drive around the area a little bit so see what’s here.


We will be here for three days and plan to do a lot of nothing! Nothing but relaxing and, as our internet friend John likes to say, “enjoying the good life”. Ken’s brother Ron says, “it ain’t easy doin’ nothing”, well see.
