Snake River

Reservoir on the Snake River about 17 miles from Weiser, ID. The road to get here, which also has a small state park, was mostly dirt; like driving over the typical washboard service road. Our son in law and our two grandchildren actually swam in the reservoir!109-DSC_3976

Leaving Seattle

Over the Cascade Range and into Wenatchee, WA. Headed towards Benton City, our first stop on the way to Weiser, ID. A longtime friend of our son in law has a ‘cottage’ on the land that is a vineyard, which his family owned till last year when they sold and retired. Mark’s friend, Alex, decided to buy the two cottages adjacent to the vineyard to live in and rent out. Amazing place, as you will see in following posts.

We followed this older ‘ship’ for a few miles on I90. On the back is the words: El Apartamento’. You never know what you are going to see on road trips. The cloud formations were interesting throughout the voyage.

Enjoy and safe travels.

docked in Seattle!!!

Seaside Slough

A marker honoring those who served and a glimpse of the slough as it curves its way around the town. Since we were in Seaside during the week of July 4th it seemed appropriate to acknowledge past veterans.

A week from  today we are casting off the lines of the Mothership and taking a journey to Weiser, ID. to view the eclipse . Very scenic area along the Oregon/Idaho border and the Snake River. We will be there three days, dry camping ( kind of roughing it) along with a horde of other folks headed to that area to view the eclipse for 2:07 minutes!

Safe travels

from the Mothership!

PS: my apologies for a less than exciting blog this summer. I hope the Idaho voyage will make up for things. Health issues have impacted daily life as well as travel plans.
