The Ferry ride from Sidney on Vancouver Island to Anacortes WA was interesting as we passed through fog banks interspersed with brilliant blue sky.
Going through US immigration on the Sidney side was easy, the usual questions, Where are you going?, how long will you be away?. On the Anacortes side US Customs asked about fruits and vegetables, and we were sent on our way.
After a short visit with Skips sister Pam IN Anacortes, we headed down I-5 in the fog, to Marysville and the Tulalip Casino.The RV lots were full, but we were able to park one lot over close to a big field where we could walk the dogs.
Tuesday morning we left Marysville early and went down I 405, which was really busy, we ended up south of Tacoma and drove down The Columbia River Gorge on highway 84.
What a spectacular drive, the traffic wasn’t too bad, the weather was sunny and quite warm and the views were amazing. Just after, the town of Hood River, we saw a sign for Memaloose State Park, we turned in and got a site for two nights.Full Hooks ups were $24.00 per night. We like to here, there is road noise and we can hear the trains, but we needed to de- stress and this is a perfect place for that.
Took a drive across the bridge at the Dales then drove to Mary Hill on the Washington side of the river.
There is a remarkable replica of Stonehenge, it was built as a memorial to the young men of the County who were killed in the first world war.http://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/2601

This young man was only 20.
We really like this area and we would stay longer but we are still headed for Utah and we will be on our way tomorrow.
