Part 1 - Westport

Tired of the smoke and needing a jump-off point for our adventure to Denman Island, BC, we decided to take the camper off the truck and drive down to Westport for a quick visit with Don and Caroline.  We arrived in the late afternoon and were able to enjoy the sun and fresh air on their deck for a few hours before they fed us a great meal.

The next morning we lazed around the house and then took a walk on the beach with the dogs. Don and Caroline had a birthday party to attend so we dog sat the rest of the day.  During that time, we took a drive into town and look around. We headed south through Grayland and drove along the ocean. Lunch was eaten at the Mutineers cafe where we ran into Holy, Don's sons wife. It was a very nice surprise.

Returning home we played with the dogs and watched TV until Caroline and Don came home. Bed came early due to a 4:30 AM departure time.  We know we could have stayed up north and been way closer to the border and our final destination, but we enjoy Done and Caroline so much we gladly would get up that early to be able to spend some time with them.
