I anticipated my next post would be Saturday, August 31, because we planned a 5-day camping trip to Mt. Rainier. We expected to see something like this, as we have had a beautiful summer this year.
Well, we've not been very lucky with weather on our camping trips, and this was no exception. We did not see the mountain. We didn't even drive up to Paradise, which is where this picture was taken. We didn't eat a single meal outside. We didn't go for a hike. We had only one fire, and that one was enjoyed for only a short while.
I'm sure you can guess by now - we saw rain, rain and more rain. We checked the weather forecast before we left, which called for partial clouds and some showers. They certainly failed on that forecast!
We left two days early and got home about 5:30 that night. We were both exhausted, as the rain was so loud on our camper roof that we didn't get much sleep. I didn't even unpack the cooler until this morning, as their was plenty of ice left to keep everything cold. I slept 10 hours last night!
We have one more trip planned - a stay on the ocean in September. I'm really hoping we will finally have sunshine.
I'm going to do the drawing for patterns later today. So if you know anyone who hasn't entered yet please let them know.
