I would slow down my pace as I walked Oliver past this sweet Airstream  during our visit to Crystal Mountain a few weeks back.  Just a few sites down from us, this Airstream captured my heart and I was absolutely dying to see the inside.  Fortunately I didn’t have to stalk the Airstream too long before owner Jenn opened up the front door and I was able to introduce myself to her.  She gave me a tour and shared her future vision of the interior with me.  I tell ya, I left completely inspired — and, goodness, does she have great taste!  If you look at the photo below, the front portion of the Airstream where you see the silver insulation — that will be covered with beautiful copper sheets and instead of having one dinette table, Jenn and her hubby Shane plan on installing two tables that can raise/lower to suit different situations — a coffee table and a dinette table both at the same time.  Very clever!  The interior is very light and bright that is complemented with beautiful white enamel pieces and copper accents.

This is not your typical Airstream however, this beautiful trailer’s sole purpose is that of a ski lodge.  Outfitted with a bench to store ski boots and a row of hooks to hang up ski attire (all which dry quickly thanks to the most adorable wood burning stove), this Airstream is an RVing skier’s dream come true.

Jenn was so sweet to send me a list of links to all of her favorite items she has in her trailer — to share with you because she believes in supporting all the local small vendors and local makers, “I’m happy to share,” she wrote.

So without further ado, let’s begin the tour!   Continue reading »

This wasn’t where I meant to be this weekend.  I meant to be at home dusting off my workbench in order to begin working on some new jewelry designs for my Etsy shop.  But rather, sweet friends of ours phoned us up and invited us to come and visit with them at their cozy cabin in the woods near Crystal Mountain.  Needless to say, a trip to the cabin propelled the idea of silversmithing to the curb-and I was very okay with that.  I was, as a matter of fact, in need of a snow fix and boy, did Miss Mother Nature deliver ♥ Continue reading »

Kalaloch Beach State Park on the Olympic Peninsula via // RV Lifestyle #Airstream Style

“Mommy?  Mommy, are you still sleeping?” B is whispering this into my ear as I sleep  . . .

I don’t say a word, hoping he will take pity on his poor tired and sleepy mom and let me be, for at least a moment longer.

“Mommy?  Mommy?”

This boy of mine.  No matter what time he goes to bed, as soon as the crack of dawn is upon us, he is up and at ’em.

“B — we are on vacation — you can sleep in if you want . . .” I try and convince him.

He is still standing next to me, I can feel his presence — he is probably pondering his next move . . .

Then hubby says, “Good Morning B,” with all smiles (I can hear him smiling, does that make sense?)  and he is next to rise and now it’s official, our day has begun.  But after the fog clears from my sleepy head, I am grateful for the early morning wake up call.  I look outside and see that the clouds moved out overnight and a beautiful pastel sunrise is on its way.

These two posts of mine covering our trip to Kalaloch Beach State Park is proof of the Olympic Peninsula’s moody weather behavior.  Cloudy, cozy and drizzling one day and the next?  Nothing but blue skies.  I took at least a million pictures.

Hubby and B headed down to the beach for a game of soccer while Oliver and I pulled ourselves together and made a skillet breakfast fit for an Olympic Peninsula king :)

The Road To Kalaloch State Park on the Olympic Peninsula via // #Airstream #GoRVing

Hwy 101, as it meanders around and occasionally hugs the Washington coastline takes us to our last stop during our road trip through the Olympic Peninsula not too long ago.  I have shared our OP trips on GoRVing’s blog up until this one.  This one, I’ve been saving for J5MM.

Here is a map I designed detailing our road trip in visual detail with our three stops:

Come travel with me to the breathtaking Olympic Peninsula as we embark on a seven day journey visiting three idyllic campsites.  We begin the first leg of our trip with a visit to The Waterfront at Potlatch RV Park along the Hood Canal.  We spend our first day in the cool misty mountains that are just a hop skip and a jump away from camp adventuring in the rainforest.  After we return to camp along the waterfront where we dig for clams that will soon become our delicious dinner.  B makes new friends, I make a refreshing oyster appetizer with Oliver by my side and hubby relaxes.  We experience pastel sunsets unparalleled anywhere else all while in the loving company of each other and our sweet silver girl.  I hope you can join me at my new writing venue with GoRVing // The Scenic Route.

Shall we go?

Not too long ago we traveled to the Northwestern-most point of the Contiguous USA here in Washington State.  I feel honored to have been able to write about that pretty amazing trip for GoRVing.  I shared with GRV’s readership the beautiful sights we saw, picturesque hikes, snow dusted ocean beaches and some delicious recipes I made in my silver kitchen.

If you have a moment and would like to read more about that beautiful trip, you can visit me over on GoRVing and get some great recipes to take with you on your next road trip ❤
