Yesterday was very quiet around the campground as all the weekenders had pulled out just leaving a few of us vacationers and full-timers. It’s amazing just how quiet this place really is, we like it.
We did make a trip into Newport for some groceries and items from the local Ace store. We had heard about a nice twenty mile steam train ride along and across the Pend Oreille River so we stopped by the tourist information center to find out all about it. The center was closed and looks like it hasn’t been in business for a very long time. We did find a brochure though about the train ride and it runs this coming weekend for the first time this year. Although a little disappointing we rolled on.
We spotted a really sweet old car and camper while driving around. It was a 1954 Nash pulling a 1937 Covered Wagon Company, 17 foot trailer. Both were all original except for the paint. While it would be a lot of fun to have something like that, at $30,000 for the pair we decided we’d stick with our 32′ fifth wheel.
We headed back to camp for lunch and a very nice quiet afternoon. While relaxing and reading our books this butterfly entertained us and asked to have its picture taken. So here’s another pretty butterfly picture for you.
