TEN TIPS FOR RVING ON THE BEACH

The only thing better than a day at the beach is spending several days at the beach. Surrounded by surf, sand, and sunshine, what could possibly go wrong?

 

 

As wonderful as RVing on the beach is, it doesn’t come without its hurdles. If you’ve ever tried to get comfortable on sheets covered with sand you know what I’m talking about. Still, whenever possible, I try to book an RV site directly on the sand. To me, there’s nothing more relaxing than a beach holiday.

WHY EVERYONE SHOULD GO RVING IN THE FALL

Many RVers will tell you that fall is their favorite time of the year to go RVing. Much of the country transforms into a spectacle of color and beauty during this time of year, but that’s just part of it. Here’s just a few of the reasons why we think everyone should schedule a fall RV trip before they winterize or, if they’re snowbirds, head south for the winter.

 

 

The Colors

Fall foliage is nature’s way of making us smile. With tracking sites on the Internet, we’re able to know the exact days the foliage will be peaking so it’s easy to make camping plans for the right dates at the right spots. It’s incredible how much the foliage can change in just a few weeks. If you’re a full-timer or have flexibility with your time, you might want to consider heading to a scenic area while it’s still a little green and stay a few weeks to watch this incredible event unfold.

AN ISLAND THANKSGIVING

 

 

Holiday traditions are an important part of our family life. One of our traditions over the Thanksgiving holiday is adventuring to the San Juan Islands of Washington State. Our destination? West Beach Resort on Orcas Island.

We arrive at the Anacortes Ferry Landing just as the sun begins to rise. We are serious early birds this morning and our wait time in line is minimal before our ferry arrives.   While we wait, we take our pup Oliver for a walk and chat with other people who too are waiting for the ferry. It’s a beautiful morning and we are so excited to be on this trip.

CUSTER’S LAST STAND AT THE BATTLE OF LITTLE BIGHORN

I had no idea what to expect when we planned this trip. Reading about historical battleground sites led me to believe we would walk up to a big open field and just stand there, staring out into the vast openness, feeling uninspired. For me, this place offered more. Observing history outside of a book is incredibly fascinating for me and I love sharing that excitement with my family.

The Battle of Little Bighorn took place in June of 1876 and was part of The Sioux War of 1876. During this two day battle, a force of 700 men lead by Lt. Col. George A. Custer suffered a defeat to the Native Americans. Including Custer, a total of 263 U.S. Army lives were lost. Ultimately, the United States prevailed against the Native Americans who were shuffled to reservations, forever changing their way of life.

We spent a lot of time at the battlefield. We paid our respects at Custer National Cemetery, toured the museum, and listened to the park rangers recount the battle of the U.S. Army versus Lakota and Cheyenne warriors.
