Home again, home again, jiggity jig..

We left Seattle today...we begin the final leg of our 8 month journey to the west coast...I can't believe we've been on the road for 7 months already! We have over 5000 far!

Our last 2 days in Poulsbo were spent doing laundry, grocery shopping and dinners with Eddie and Patrick. It rained most of the time, which is typical for Seattle. Wednesday night we had dinner at Eddie's...fried oysters (freshly caught the day before!), broiled salmon, appetizers, and a chocolate cream pie for Eddie's birthday! It was all delicious! Then on Thursday night, we took Eddie and Patrick out to dinner for Eddie's birthday. We went to the Boat Shed in Bremerton and had a fantastic meal...we even split a chocolate lava cake that was to die for!
During the day on Thursday, Ed and I passed the time by watching old GMCs fill the RV park...they had a rally and we counted 16 GMCs by this morning! There are supposed to be 28 total, but I'm sure some probably had to work yesterday and will arrive today. We met one couple that parked behind us and they gave us a little tour of their cute!

Today we left the park around 9:15am for a 10:00am oil change appt at the local Ford dealer. We were out of there by 11:00 and headed to Bainbridge Island to catch the ferry to Seattle. One of the ferry employees was impressed with our RV and we chatted with him for quite a while. Before the ferry docked in Seattle, he came back and told us that he asked the guys up front to help up get into the right lane to catch I-90 out of Seattle..what a nice guy! Getting through Seattle wasn't as bad as I expected...we only had to go about a mile to get onto I-90 and it wasn't long before Seattle was out of sight and we were on our way to Moses Lake, WA for the night. It rained a good part of the day and it was a little windy but the highway was pretty easy and we only went about 150 miles...we got a late start!

Tomorrow we'll go as far as Osburn, ID, about 186 miles east of here...and we'll stay over night just so we can fill in our map and say we slept in Idaho! From there, we'll head up to Glacier, if the weather is good...we'll have to call ahead.

More from Glacier National Park!
