August 20 - Tulalip, Washington

Home last night was under the cedars trees. This is the second campground where we've been in a heavily treed area, darker than we've experienced for this summer, but the smell of the trees was wonderful.

I hadn't been to Washington Park for over 30 years. I was a bit surprised to see the lack of maintenance on the facilities. The restroom building had trees growing out of the moss on the shingles!

I was less surprised to see banana slugs on the ground, a clear indication that we're back on the wet coast of Washington.

This morning we stopped by the marina in Anacortes to see the W.T. Preston on display.  As a kid, the Corp of Engineers operated Preston was often seen tied up on the riverfront in town or moored somewhere pulling logs and snags from the river.

And of course, I couldn't miss the opportunity for a marina picture.

Home for the night is the free RV parking at the Tulalip Resort & Casino near I-5 in Marysville where we had a chance to go to dinner with wonderful SAR / river friends.
