So, to bring y'all up to date with this crazy Nana -
we had one more camping trip scheduled for this busy summer of 2014 [although there are a couple of fall dates on the calendar]. Not the easiest to reach, but a wonderful park is Alder Lake. It is part of the Tacoma Power Utility network. We are told that Alder dam supplies electricity to both the city of Tacoma as well as some which is sold to Bonneville Power. [interestingly, it doesn't supply the park itself - which might have been nice]
Our friends Mary and Marne and their daughter Amelia came down for one day,
We are now on the countdown to another biking trip. Much to do, as well as getting in more "saddle" time. It was drizzling fairly hard, but still warm.
Hope we have everything that we need - or else we'll have to borrow it from Caro and Rob. We will stay with them before we begin biking. Stories and photos to follow. Woo Hoo!
