A Fruitful Afternoon

We walked down from where we are parked, through an orchard to the Columbia River, with our granddaughter. This is the mighty Columbia, looking south toward Wenatchee from just below the Rocky Reach Dam.

Here we are looking north, towards the dam. You can barely see it in the distance. (click to enlarge) Nat is always finding sticks to pick up.

 Heading home through the orchard. There are still  lots of apples here and there, very tasty, though on the verge of getting rotten from the cold and from being on the ground. You can see our 5th wheel at the end of the pathway.

A golden treasure along with some "junk" she found in the field. She ate all these apples in one afternoon!

A Porch Project!

Whenever we know we're going to be in one place for a few months we like to put up our porch. It's a lot nicer than the standard RV steps, which can be awkward and dangerous sometimes. We store the porch, completely dismantled, in the back of BigTruk when we don't want it up. On this lovely day we had a surprise visit from our daughter and granddaughters. Keith asked Natalie if she'd help him get the boards and supports out of the truck so he could start assembling the porch. She did, and then she stuck with him throughout the whole process! Pretty good for an 8 year old!

 In this photo Mom came out and helped with the nuts and bolts, too.

 Here is the finished product! A great porch and steps for our RV!

New Digs

 We have new digs! The Wenatchee River County Park closes on November 1st so we had to leave. Our friends have provided a great spot for us to park, right behind their fruit stand and gift shop. This apple orchard, part golden delicious and part Braeburn, has a lovely glow and is enticing me to have a stroll down the rows! The best part is that our door opens right onto this gorgeous fall scene!

Here is our 5th wheel from the front, parked between the orchard and the fruit stand.

 A view from the back. It's a lovely spot.

 Another shot of the tree tunnel. So pretty!


And last, this is our view from the back of our trailer. That hill is on the other side of the Columbia River, which is not far beyond the orchard. We plan to enjoy our stay here!
