Out and on the road once again. This is the mantra we follow in our life of travel and mystery. Pointing south we roll out of the campground and head down the coast of Washington state. A thick fog encompasses the area and objects disappear into the distance behind us. The goal for the day is to make it 70 miles to Aberdeen WA for a overnight stay at the trusty Wal-Mart. More often than not our intent is to find a free place to stay that has some interest but we always plan a back up. Fruitless google searches and scouring of our parking apps yield nothing but this lonesome stop on our travel path. Our eyes peeled, the thick Olympic Forests encompass the roads. So dense they are as one cannot see more than a few feet threw it's greenery.
We hit Ocean City on the way down and saw a sign pointing towards the beach. With the rig pulled over we set out on a quick walk about. What's this? You can drive your car on the beach? Shirley was unhooked and off we went. Barreling through loose ocean sand for 4 miles.
This led us to the North Jetty. A rocky outpost built to break waves for the harbor. Even on this calm day the waves were still rolling in.
With play time over and ocean shores seen it was time to find home for the night.
Showing up to Aberdeen around 1700 we found the Wal-Mart to be packed solid. The town was rundown and there were homeless people sleeping under the railroad bridge right next to the parking lot. Time to move on. Another 20 miles down the road lay the Elma rest area. That'll do for the night.
