Seattle..where is the rain?

On our way to Seattle, we picked up our first mail drop in Spokane, WA.  It was a pretty painless process except for trying to find a place to park the motorhome in downtown Spokane.  After a couple days in Spokane, we continued our trek across Washington State.

We arrived in Seattle and got a campsite about a half hour north of town.  It was a pretty nice KOA on a lake, and we spent the day just hanging out and riding a paddle boat on the lake.  The next day we rented a car and headed to Seattle.  We visited the typical tourist things, the Space Needle, Pike Market, and the Seattle Art Museum.  By the time we left, it was rush our and rather than sit in traffic we hit the REI flagship store to kill some time.

The next day we pulled up camp and moved to Anacortes for a couple days.  We got on the bikes and scouted for our boat dock for our whale watching trip the next day.  We then found a great seafood restaurant and had dinner.  Upon returning to camp, Abigayle was beyond excited to find a family with kids had setup camp beside us.  She immediately dropped her bike and introduced herself to the kids and they played until bedtime.

The next day we went on a whale watching tour and along with beautiful views of the San Juan Islands, we saw dolphins, seals, sea lions, bald eagles and orcas.
