I’m always amazed at how fast time goes when we’re on the road adventuring with our silver girl. I guess the saying is true that time really does fly when you’re having fun.
We had a beautiful time exploring Washington’s coastline from south of Ocean Shores at Grayland Beach to the Olympic Peninsula — Kalaloch State Park. We foraged for our own seafood from many varieties of clams (razors, manilla, butters, etc.) to dungeness crab and oysters. I’ve always enjoyed my oysters raw on the half shell with just a squeeze of lime but this time I decided to make a cucumber shallot mignoette topping and oh my, what a flavor sensation that was. We enjoyed a crab boil along the coast with our freshly caught crab and clam sliders were on order most days. Speaking of clams, have you ever cooked with a razor clam straight from the shell? It was an interesting experience for me.
Some non-seafood goodies we enjoyed on our trip were chocolate crepes, baked eggs in my trusty cast iron skillet as well as nostalgic Toas-Tite campfire treats. Cooking with our Toas-tite’s brought back sweet memories for me from my childhood days in Girl Scouts when our camp leader introduced this camping essential to us. If you don’t know, you butter a piece of bread and place it in the round part of the Toas-Tite. You then proceed to fill it up with whatever meltable filling you’d like (in our case – ham and swiss cheese). Then you place another buttered piece of bread on top (the buttered side facing up) and close the griddle together creating a “seal” and then you cook it over an open flame. About a minute per side. It creates the most perfect little portion of heavenly melty goodness.
We spent our days exploring sandy beaches and enjoying pastel sunsets. The weather was pretty and clear with no rain and then we had rain but it was all perfect for us. On the cloudy days we enjoyed beach fires with our trusty One Log Fire. Such a cute little “campfire to go,” that log fire is. B carried it easily in his tiny hands and lit it without a hitch.
Evenings were peaceful inside the Airstream and early walks were guarantees with just Ollie and I.
I’m enjoying sifting through all of my photos and putting them together to share with you and soon I will have a grand post that details all of our doings during this trip. It was a beautiful trip indeed and thank you for being here. I love sharing our adventures with you xx
Thanks for being here,
With all my heart,
While hubby, B, Ollie and I were on the road I learned that GoRVing published my story of our Airstream winter road trip through the sweet mountain town of McCall, Idaho. If you would like to get a taste and feel for adventuring in McCall, you can travel with me here. I also shared some things that I do for peace of mind when traveling with Ollie.
I hope you like it and I hope it inspires you to put McCall, ID on your travel bucket list. We’ve been back twice already ♥
