  • Welcome to the RunnerDuck Blog

    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.
    Welcome

Day 13 – On the Road Again

Once again we were in the traveling mode to get from Newport to Winthrop, Washington. It was a 244 mile drive with beautiful vistas and winding two lane roads. We spent so much time driving we didn’t even stop to take any pictures. We only averaged about 37 miles per hour.

There were a number of areas where we had to stop for roadwork, this also slowed our progress. Around the area of Republic, Washington we were stopped because they were cleaning up the mess from the thunderstorm that had rolled through a couple of days before. There were trees and power poles down all over the place, a real mess.

We arrived at the Silverline Resort on Pearrygin Lake, just outside Winthrop, WA, around 5:00 in the afternoon. The nice camp people pointed us to our spot and we set up camp. They had a very nice spot for us right on the lake.

 

It was around 85 degrees F and a nice breeze. Here’s the view from our chairs setting beside our camper.

 

Not too shabby! Shortly after this picture was taken the dark clouds rolled in and we had a nice little rain squall come through.

We went to dinner in Winthrop which is a nice town done up in a very western theme. Hopefully I’ll have some good pictures of the town for you tomorrow.

Today we are going to just rattle around town and see what we can discover.
