Part Two-White Rock BC to Springfield OR (397 miles)

We were up and out the door from Josh, Kathy & Gus' place and through the border at Peace Arch border crossing (Blaine, WA) by 9:15 a.m. Not bad considering that there are still many people doing cross-border "post-Christmas" shopping and this causes huge line-ups at the border.

Welcome to Washington state!!

We had a great drive today. About 6 hours with a small lunch stop and one gas fill up. We are in Springfield OR, ready for dinner!!

...and welcome to Oregon state as well!!

You know these driving days, not much for pictures but here goes...

Leaving White Rock this morning....

 Doug did the evening road shots....pretty good, huh?!!!

 
So, here we go. Tomorrow we will be heading west on Hwy 126 to Florence, OR (on the coast). From there, it's groceries and then southbound on the coast highway. Love this part!!
 
We are going to try and NOT buy an internet stick. I know, this could cause me some consternation but we will see how it goes. If you don't see a post in the evening, that means we do not have internet and we will be posting when we do coffee on our morning stop!! We will see how it goes!!
 
Tomorrow is New Years Eve!! Almost time to welcome in a brand new year.......
 
Peace and out!!

  2. Bon voyage my friends. And, Happy New Year about 14 hours early (for me anyway).
    I really do hope we can rendez-vous somewhere along the way and I know you're in for a great adventure, as am I, throughout wonderful US, etc. But, I do miss Mexico!
