Escape to Bay View -- Ladybug's Maiden Voyage!

With the prospect of reasonable weather my wife and I took Ladybug on her maiden voyage to Bay View State Park near Anacortes, Washington, just a few hours drive from Vancouver. Bay View State Park has some nice campsites with power and water, close to shopping in nearby Burlington and Mount Vernon, and interesting nature walks. Our Escape 13 performed wonderfully!

Here are a few pictures.

Beautiful pics Brian... I particularly like the one of the bee among the flowers.

Thank you, Texscapees. Here is another picture of a bee amongst flowers I took at the Sequim Washington Lavender Festival last year:

Yes, it was 15 degrees Celsius (59 degrees Fahrenheit) on Friday at Bay View, and the grass had just been cut.

Re: Escape to Bay View -- Ladybug's Maiden Voyage!

Ian and I are leaving on the 20th for the south for 6 weeks. We dug the snow out from in front of the camper last week so that we could take Houdini to get the wheel bearings re-packed and the brakes adjusted after a long winter under the new shelter we built last fall. Now we are packing and getting excited to get out there. Our first stop is near Winchester VA, then on to points south - eventually as far as Ocala Florida. So, Hokie Esacape, we hope you will have a bit less snow by then! The last storm here in Southern Vermont was heavy and wet and like shoveling concrete!
Isn't it fun to be closer to getting back to a camping reality?! Love those Ladybug photos. They are beautiful.
Happy Spring everyone.
Jenny

I've added a few shots of daffodils. They are out now in La Conner Washington and on the Bay View-Edison Highway that goes past Bay View State Park.
