We camped (yes, again!), this time at Cape Disappointment State Park, home of the Cape Disappointment Lighthouse, the Coast Guard Station and former military batteries which were part of the 'Harbor Defense of the Columbia'. Originally built in 1904 with 6" guns, they were decommissioned in May of 1945.
Our climate is very suited to rust, mold & decay, so much of the wood used is gone but the concrete
Several good friends/relatives have been in our thoughts and prayers this month as one lovely lady passed away, another friend fell and broke several bones in her shoulder/clavicle and my mom's brother fell and broke his hip AND collar bone! So hard to see those you love hurting and many prayers have been going up for these loved ones!
Did I mention...hot? In its defense, there were some very lovely farms, stunning old barns and lush alfalfa fields in the valleys.
The water was GLACIAL. Can you tell?
Beautiful La Wis Wis is located in the Tatoosh Wilderness area of the Cowlitz Valley Ranger District. The campground sits where the Ohanapecosh River, Cowlitz River and Purcell Creek meet.
A funny thing happened that evening. About 9:30ish, we were in the camper, settled in for the evening reading in our jammies when we hear a knock on the door. "Is it too late to see the rabbits? Have the rabbits gone to bed?" in an English accent, no less! Of course we love to show off the show bunnies, so we came out and opened the tailgate of the truck, got out a couple of impressive 15 pound French Lops and visited with the interesting stranger for a half hour or so. She was originally from Yorkshire, hence the accent. She was suitably impressed and we enjoyed the visit.
