And Then. . .

We had a trailer tire going flat so we stopped off at Les Schwab on our way to Washington State.  The nice man said it was a faulty stem and then he fixed it for free!  When the Duke thanked him he smiled and said "Enjoy your vacation!".  Wow.  There are still some really nice people out there.  He must have dogs at home :)

So off we went to Cascade Locks, Oregon to cross "The Bridge of the Gods" into Washington.  You may recall last year we had to cross this very same bridge and it is quite unnerving.

It is a Toll Bridge, so we had to stop at the booth and pay.  It costs $1 for the truck and $1 for the trailer.  And it's guaranteed to scare you as good as a Haunted House, if not better.  All for $2.  Not bad :)

Oh dear, why does that sign say Flagger Ahead?  There is not room for a Flagger on that bridge!

Oh, they closed a lane. Wait! What!!!???  They can't do that!  This is getting really dangerous.....

Hmmm..... Ya' think?????

This is the worst part.  The metal grid you drive on.  Even if you close your eyes you can still feel it and hear it.  Horrible if you are afraid of heights like my Duchess.

She almost fainted after she took the next two pictures!  Hahahaha.  We love to tease her.

Finally we got into the little town of Stevenson, Washington, and look who greeted us?  A friendly local :)

After all that excitement it was a relief to settle down at our new camp site.

A cutthroat friendly game of Domino's was first on the list of things to do.

We get to supervise all the action.  And if a piece falls to the ground we are in charge of finding it quickly.

That silly Duke is wearing his favorite shirt again :)

We had a fun time on our camping trip but the Duchess was unhappy with her camera.  She took it in to have it cleaned and was hoping that would solve the problems she was having, but it didn't.  The pictures this year just are not up to snuff.  The shutter is not working properly and the Duchess has become quite frustrated.  Oh well, I tell her not to worry about it, someday we can get it fixed proper.  But till then "what we get is what we get".  And that'll do!

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. You should send your experience to Les Schuab and you can be on their next TV add. Especially if they get it from a dogs point of view. Seriously. I think you have some money coming from that experience.

    And sorry, but I think I would have wanted to walk across that bridge instead of ride. Just the pictures are scary enough for me.


  2. I really like the Dukes T Shirt..very classy!
    I would have closed my eyes over that bridge..very scary, I don't like heights either..or those noisy kind of bridges that you can practically see through.
    I hope Lady G won lots at Dominoes:)

  3. Yikes that bridge is scary. Sure is beautiful there. Glad the tire is feeling better

  4. I could not have crossed that bridge. At least, not without serious pharmaceutical help.

  5. I think you are very brave to go over that bridge and take pictures!! I would probably pass out...I hate heights!! Beautiful pictures though and I love the Duke's shirt!! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

  6. We hope you enjoyed your trip in our wonderful state of Washington! We love it cause here are so many beautiful places to go!
    Hugs and wags, Mistaya and Maggie
