For our summer 2022 road trip, we chose to visit Vancouver B.C., Victoria B.C., and explore Washington’s Olympic National Park. It was a great mix of city and country locations for indoor and outdoor adventures.
Saturday, June 24th
11am Left home. Feeling sad we didn’t say goodbye to our neighbors who were moving to Iowa that day.
11:30am Jenni realizes her wallet is still at home! Turn around and go back. Glad we came back because we forgot a jacket for David, and to turn on the dishwasher. We stop by our neighbors and say a proper goodbye.
12pm Drove and drove and drove. Thermos lunch, and lettuce wraps for second lunch.
8pm Hotel in Spokane, Washington. Turkey Tacos microwaved for dinner.
It started with a wish and a dream… “Wouldn’t it be nice to take the kids to Disneyland again? Bruce is 4 and likes waving good-bye to the MAX. He would just love seeing characters and parades!”
Of course, we couldn’t go without Tracy, and this time we needed Larrydad too! And what about our families? Wouldn’t that be fun?!
So this winter began the discussions and planning. I felt like I was already vacationing and enjoying the trip the more I researched about it! We developed what became an 18 day touring plan (Father’s Day weekend through the 4th of July) that included a couple nights in Shasta area, 2 nights in the Sequoia National Park, picking up a Southern California CityPASS and trying out AirBnB lodging in the San Diego area, hitting some theme parks, a couple nights stop at a beach campground, another AirBnB house in Anaheim for 5 nights, then wrapping up with visiting an aunt and uncle and cousins in Alameda for a few nights, and then one more camp stop in southern Oregon before our last leg home.
