A whale of a sight

This life size statue of an Orca killer whale is in the entrance way to the Tulalip Casino off of I-5 north of Seattle.  We have been patrons of the casino several times when we traveled to the Seattle area to visit family.  When we were last there you could park your motorhome for 3 days in the designated RV lot. No services, but a patrolled and safe place to stay.

It seems that there is a brand new, additional casino on the same property. There was a Grand Opening  February 3rd. It is listed as being twice as large as the first casino. We will definitely check it out the next time we travel to the Pacific Northwest.

 

Extended stays are different

We are currently in our first real extended stay at an RV park. We are in Everett, Washington near our daughter and son-in-laws home. The RV park is called Lakeside RV Park.

Our home base for a few months.

We are getting used to the differences between an extended stay and traveling across country. One difference is how we set up the Hideout. No longer do things need to be stowed for travel. We can have the salt and pepper shakers out on the table all the time! The stove top can become a place to leave the cracker box when I am not cooking.

I can leave the knife set out!

So far Sher and I are comfortable with this park. The people here are very friendly and helpful in sharing information about the area grocery stores,drug stores and the like.
