Interesting rig

We had a 9:00 am appt this morning to fill up my big propane tank at $1.49 per gallon. That is an unbelievably low price, and must be at the campground's cost. Very nice campground!

We said goodbye to John and Susan and headed down the road on the way to Salt Creek County campground which is located west of Port Angeles right on the water.

A brochure that we picked up describes it this way: With its stunning views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Victoria, British Columbia, Salt Creek Recreation Area and Campground is the perfect setting for exploration and discovery. Salt Creek is home to some of the most exceptional tide pools in the Northwest. During low tide you'll see starfish, sea cucumbers, crabs, sea anemones, and urchins among the plentiful sea life on display."

When we arrived here it was fogged in like pea soup so we weren't able to get many pictures, but when it clears up we'll get lots of them and send the best of them along to you. This is a tiered campground set up so that everyone in our section of the campground has a spectacular view of the water. We paid in advance for 7 days at $24 per nite for water and electric and this looks to be a very special place indeed. Nancy had said that it would be as she had camped here maybe 20 years ago with Ryen and Nicole and remembered it very fondly. I'd also heard this same kind of thing from others, but sometimes you just have to see them for yourself to understand how special some things are. This is another one of those wonderful surprises that happen occasionally in our travels, and contribute to this great adventure that Nancy and I are in the middle of. Life is good!!
