We arrived in Newport yesterday the 21st after spending a week in Astoria our stay in Astoria was good it rained 4 out of the 7 days but that can be the PNW We did make it to downtown and was able to see Ringo Star's yacht that he leases didn't know who's it was until seeing it on the 10:00pm news that night they said he was visiting Astoria for a while as he is somewhat a history buff. We also toured Long Beach WA across the Columbia river and enjoyed that area again. We are at the port of Newport marina RV park nice view of the marina & bridge the weather has been good so far will be here a week this is one of my favorite town's on the OR coast I can walk the marina and there is lots to see and revisit here. We still don't know where our next stop will be as we slowly make our way back to AZ not much going on here other than living the dream so until later safe travels.

We arrived here the 1st and will be here 7 days. this is a Army guard base and the camp ground is on American lake near Tacoma WA very nice little park We had our two son's down today for our last visit with them before leaving. Its been great to see them every Sunday we had a cook out today and they are just so envious of our lifestyle and the camp grounds that we stay in. It was hard to say goodbye to them. Kathy & I decided to go back to Pacific Beach for five days as we like it there and the weather has warmed as it was a bit chilly when we were there six weeks ago and I believe we will back track down the Oregon coast as we really love it around the coast and the weather is warmer hope it holds up. We will slowly make our way back to Arizona for the winter. On a sad note we lost a great RV friend & 2007 class mate today Jay Carter pasted away after a gallant battle with brain cancer out thoughts and prayers go out to the Carter family we had many a good times with Jay & Fay at our class get togathers Until next post safe travels
