A Weekend in the Sun
We finally got out of town Saturday about noon on a wonderfully sunny, though cold day. That's our trailer, the first one on this street in the Four Seasons RV Park in Walla Walla. A very nice park with excellent facilities (meaning a great bathroom and showers) and even cable and wireless internet access. We stayed quite warm at night with our little electric heaters - why use our gas when we're paying for electricity in our hookup fees, lol!
Sunday we spent all day out and about, searching for geocaches. This photo of our four youngest was taken near Ft. Walla Walla, which was closed for the winter. You can see the beautiful Blue Mountains in the background. We headed out towards the Whitman Mission site for a little history lesson, and more caches, of course.
This is a view of the mission site taken from the monument on the top of a nearby hill. What a view from the top! But I didn't see it this trip, as it was just too cold for me to hike up the hill. Kirsten and I spent time with the exhibits in the museum where she got just a little freaked out by the Indian mannequins, lol!
All this geocaching and I spent most of the time driving and waiting while the others found the caches. Very pleasant for me actually as I had my stitching along and I listened to the radio. I've started another of the alphabet series by M Designs - P - although you can't tell what letter it is yet! I'm using Thread Gatherer silk floss called Honey Blues, which I really love, on 32 ct. linen from my stash. It'll look great in my entry.
