Spokane Bound

We spent the night in a Cabella’s lot (Lacy, WA ) with several big rigs and a couple other RVers.

Shorty looks like a toy next to this big rig.๐Ÿ˜ฎ
It is considerate of Cabella’s to provide an area for horses๐Ÿดand dogs.๐Ÿ• We have neither but for those that do, heads up!๐Ÿ‘City Sights We passed passed the Tacoma Dome and Car museum.

BridgesThere is something about bridges that Craig and I admire. Their structure? The architecture? Their design? The colors or materials? Their strength and size? I don’t know. We just like bridges.๐Ÿ—๐ŸŒ We passed several bridges on our way to Spokane.A broken bridge!๐Ÿ˜ฎAs we cruised down the highway we saw a Military convoy.We thank you for your service.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™As we continied on the 90 we noticed that the terraine had changed again. We passed some beautiful green pastures, some beautiful bodies of water and snow capped mountains.There is just so much to see that I can’t possibly document it all. It is all so beautiful. ๐ŸžHow blessed we are to have this opportunity to travel.Let me put a pin here. WE acknowledged today that Craig is a DESTINATION driver; so unlike me.๐Ÿ˜‘ But that’s OK.๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿคญ I am the navigator. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰We both wanted some fruit so we stopped at a roadside fruit stand; Thorp Fruit. We parked next to a tan Winnebego View. After some shopping, we stopped and chatted with the owners of that View. Nice folks from WA who have done ALOT of travelling. We shared a couple of stories about our vehicles and went on our way.Manito ParkOK, so we made it to Spokane, WA late in the afternoon and decided to find a public park and set up our grill to make dinner. This was by far the BEST part of our day. With the help of a local we found a BEAUTIFUL Park. People are so FRIENDLY in Spokane. One local said it’s because the snow is gone and they finally get to go outside! ๐Ÿ˜Manito Park used to be a zoo, years ago, but it closed and was transformed into a beautiful park. After dinner we took a walk.Sidebar: Manito in Spanish is “little hand.” “Mano” is hand and “ito” at the end of a word indicates little.Some pix as we strolled around the park.
The Lilac Garden. SO FRAGRANT!!
There was a Japanese Garden, a Butterfly Garden, a Rose Garden and the Lilac Garden. The Lilac Garden was the MOST FRAGRANT garden I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. It was so very FRAGRANT. It was incredible! If you ever make it to Spokane, WA you must stop at this Park.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
Us, in the park.
We took that walk after dinner which consisted of a seasoned ribeye steak and potatoes with a side of asperagus in butter and garlic grilled in foil packs.
Dinner was DELISH!
Me attempting to take a selfie.
Go ahead and laugh. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚ WE DID! CLEARLY Craig and I both need practice taking selfies. We were trying to show you our dinner.๐Ÿ˜‚๐ŸคฃAnyway, we are spending the night in a Walmart parking lot in Spokane Valley along side of a couple of big rigs and other RVers.THANK YOU SAM WALTON!!On to Idaho and Montana tomorrow.๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ˜ด
