I just couldn't take it anymore !! So cold and so much rain. The following videos will give you a wee glimpse…
How cold was it you might ask ? Well so cold that I had to put my clothes by the heater to warm them up !! They were da pure ICE when I took them out of the closet.
I left Beverly Beach State Park with the intentions of driving along the Oregon Coast for one more day and then heading over to the I-5 for my final descent back into British Columbia, CANADA ! My destination for that day was Tillamook, Oregon.
I wasn't on the road very long and the driving conditions were so awful I said "SCREW THIS !" At Tillamook, I saw a sign for a route to Portland and took it.
It was pouring rain so hard and the rain drops were so large they almost looked like snow. Pffft ! Snow ! Silly me !! It's frikkin' the end of April. But sure enough it was SNOW – and not just looking up into the mountains. This disgusting stuff was on the ground.
I trucked on and eventually made it to Wally's in Cornelius, Oregon where I spent the night. Thankfully today was beautiful driving conditions = NO RAIN and although it wasn't 'warm', it was nice and sunny.
I now get to add another State to my map..
These pics are entering the Seattle area – not hard to tell I'm back in the big city zone. YUCK
Of course it's about mid afternoon by the time I reach Seattle and guess what…
Seattle is not a 'pretty' City, but look at that gorgeous sky !!
Starting to see the signs for Vancouver now !!!
And look at those mountains..
I drove to Bellingham, WA today for a total of 288 miles/463kms. That's a lot farther than I had planned but I got on the road a little earlier than usual plus the driving conditions were so good it was very relaxing.
Tomorrow I re-enter Canada and get to spend time with my long time Friend, Irene, who lives just an hour outside of Vancouver in Abbotsford. Plus I will also get to see many old friends that I've stayed in touch with over the years.
