    Chelan, Washington

    July 12, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    It was so nice to finally get a shower last night, even if it was a pay shower! We slept in until 7ish & as we were eating breakfast & getting ready for the day, Chris arrived early, after finishing his CDT ride yesterday afternoon. After we helped him unpack, the 3 of us headed into town to explore. We had a yummy lunch at the Fox and Quail Bistro & visited a fun little shop, & then stopped by a pub that also served goodies from a local bakery. Then we drove around to find the Chelan falls & visited a local park before stopping by a roadside wine/fruit shop near the orchards & vineyards to grab a bottle & so Chris could officially get a Washington apple. We headed back to camp just as it started to drizzle. The rain & crazy winds seem to have been chasing us this whole trip! Luckily, the rain passed us over quickly this time and was mostly just wind. We took a walk along the lake and climbed some rocks to get a nice spot to enjoy the view for a while. Then Chris inflated one of his spare inner tubes & attempted to float in the frigid water for awhile while we enjoyed his antics from the beach. Tonight is our last night of camping. Tomorrow we head to Seattle to sleep in an actual house & enjoy some nice sightseeing.Read more
