Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our Journey. Don retired October 2011 so hopefully the travelling part will increase! When we are not vacationing check in for updates about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

Seattle Washington

We arrived in Seattle on Monday morning.  By 11:30 we were in our campground, Vasa Lake Resort.  It is a simple little private campground on Sammamish Lake.  I have to say I really like camping with power.  Don prefers being out with nothing, but I am spoiled.  We also have internet and laundry:)

After we set up the trailer we drove out to explore the area.  We needed groceries, and were hoping to find a Verizon dealer to sell us an American wifi card so we could have internet anywhere there was phone service.  Driving around cities looking for addresses is a great way to explore.

Today we went to Pike Place Market.  This is one of the coolest Farmers Market you will ever visit!  Of course we came away with fresh seafood, salmon for Don, and scallops for me.  Also we bought our fresh fruits and veggies for the next few days.  After completing the trip with a bowl of yummy clam chowder, we drove north of Seattle to check out Premium Outlets mall.  I wanted to shop at J Crew and Carters.  J Crew was an awesome store, but I didn’t end up buying anything.  I keep thinking I have lots of clothes and until I find a job where will I wear something new?  Poor me:)  As for Carters I was hoping to find Christmas jammies for the kids, but there were none out yet.

We took a very scenic long route back to the trailer, and had time for a drink and a nice supper before dark.

So our stay in Seattle ends tomorrow.  We have decided to visit Mt St Helens, as it has been a few years since we were there.  I will let you know how that is when we have internet again.

Take care
