And We're Off...




Our road trip adventure has begun! As predicted our projected start time of 8am became the reality start time of 9am -- all those last minute decisions and double checks, you know! Nonetheless, we covered all the territory anticipated, and enjoyed a beautiful day of driving. We started out in showers in Whatcom County, but they petered out somewhere is Skagit, and much of the day we enjoyed sunshine as we traveled Highway 2 to Spokane.


We enjoyed the view of the Wenatchee River. Fall colors were beginning to peek out on the west side of the Cascades -- even more so on the east side...There were the orchards -- some still full of fruit, and then the contrast of the dry, rocky coulees, and the massive fields of wheat...farm country! We loved it! So many contrasts in our the span of our state!



Mid afternoon we enjoyed some old-fashioned soft ice cream -- the grainy, COLD, COLD kind -- not that airy creamy stuff they serve now. Edna's Drive-In in Davenport brags on their ice cream, and rightly so...So good you could get a brain freeze in a second!


However, the best treat was yet to come! In Spokane, we had a wonderful dinner with Randy's brother Barry, and wife Lynn and got to meet their grandson, our great-nephew, Carter Harrison Edwards. Oh yes -- Carter's parents were there too! : ) Thanks Nick and Shauna for graciously allowing me to hold that sweet boy of yours as long as I could!


The time was too short -- but now its off to bed to be ready for tomorrow's adventure. Next stop -- Montana!

Thanks for giving us virtual travel...since we're SOOOOO jealous! Glad to hear you had a good first day. Carter is such a peanut. :) I had just looked at his cute pics on their family blog the other day. Love to all, Meg
PS I'll cheer extra hard at the game tomorrow nite...I hardly dare to think it, but we may have a chance.
