Jul 4, 2018 - Our WA House

Here is a quick photo tour of the WA house and area. Excuse the mess. The previous owners left a lot of stuff behind and every time my mother-in-law would come to help meet repair people, she would leave stuff that she no longer wanted at her house. Up until now we did not have garbage service or a nearby donation place. Now we need to empty out the drawers, cupboards, and closets. Our house is on the corner of Ravenridge Court and Alpineridge Place. Ravenridge is the only street into the community and Alpineridge is a side street. Our...

Jun 24, 2016 - Port Orchard

June 23 – 24 Days 5-6 The next morning we headed toward the Nisqually Entrance of the park, exiting there on our way for a brief, overnight stay at home. It was raining pretty hard when we backed into our driveway. We all got caught-up on laundry, as well as a trip up to Freddy’s for grocery replenishment. From Lacey, the next morning we went to Manchester State Park near Port Orchard. This was the first time we’d camped there. The state park is compact. It had about thirty-five hook-up sites. Both of our sites were pull-through. We camped...

Aug 21, 2015 - Armstrong RV and Spa

We departed the Thousand Trails at Oceana about 9:30 a.m. for 105 miles through hill and dale to Port Orchard for a visit to our friends home. Last year they installed a 30 amp power receptacle for us to park at the garage. We called them when we were about 20 minutes away and they were ready to receive us. Due to the narrowness of the driveway gate, Dave had to back down the street to a big parking then turn around and back up the street for another go at the entry. Success came but not without a couple bush rubs on the wide coach going...

Nov 2, 2013 - 3rd District Conference

Well, the wind did blow and the rain fell last night. The hotel parking lot was full of pine needles and other wind-strewn debris. The dive to Port Orchard was beautiful, though it was pretty breezy crossing the Tacoma Narrows bridge. I could sight-see going over the bridge... I was watching the truck with a container trailer in front of me. I had visions of that thing coming loose and landing in our path. We made it safely. The meeting went very well. All Posts in the District were present except for one, so that was nice. The lights...

Aug 26, 2012 - Pilgrim Firs Camp near Port Orchard, Washington - Church Retreat

Since 1967, we have been members of The United Churches of Olympia, Washington. The two mainline Protestant Christian denominations that make up this congregation – United Church of Christ (UCC) and Presbyterian Church USA – have been federated in Olympia since 1916, sharing programs and a succession of buildings for all these years. Our children were raised in this church. We both sang in the church choir, and the whole family played in the bell choir, which Sharon directed. Sharon was the Church Administrator for 13 years until 1993; Jon...

Sep 1, 2009 - Port Orchard, Washington

After a late night last night it was hard to get up early this morning, but we managed to roll out of bed and were on the way to Seattle airport by 7:30. With heavy cloud cover, a light rain, and commuters trying to get to work, it was a tedious drive without much opportunity to look around. We collected my parents from the hotel where they stayed last night and headed back to Port Angeles. On the way, we stopped briefly at Port Orchard. This is a small village of about 10,000. I had read about the charming shops along the waterfront and...

Jan 16, 2009 - Going again..

So after 18 hours in port at Port Orchard in the bay of Bremerton (home of a huge naval shipyard) we are on our way further south. We read the guide books, and learned that this would be a quaint town with murals, covered walkways and nice little shops and restaurants. What we found in great number were bail bond stores (4 in a 3 block area),bars, many shops closed for business, a bus stop with a young woman begging for dollars and a very nice marina office staff. The most redeeming factor there...a bakery. Yep, awesome cinamon rolls,...
