Week 28: Oct 13-19, 2013 Bentleys, Maltas Café, and Canada: We Made It! Eh?

2013-10-13 18.30.11 Vickie and Rick Davies and their 1956 Bentley in Clackamas OR In Clackamette Park outside Portland, we admire a beautiful white 1956 Bentley where bride and groom are having pictures taken. Rick and Vickie purchased the Bentley on eBay to start their limousine service for weddings, and the vehicle is perfect for them. People find amazing things on eBay.

Traveling north into Washington, we set up the trailer in Monroe, just outside of Seattle. Then visit long-time friends Michelle and Doug and their family, and Matt and Chris, friends from Boy Scouts.

Michelle takes us to Maltas Café – one of those great places where everybody eats. To find it, you have to ask the locals.

Riding the ferry to Whidby Island is an adventure to us “inlanders”. Sherry and I are all ooh and aah. Hiking on Whidby Island is like being in the enchanted forest. Old growth trees, large ferns, bushes, wide variety of mushrooms growing fanatically everywhere.

Anxious to reach Canada before extreme cold sets in, we travel north again quickly to a few miles from the Canadian border. Park the trailer, drive thru Canadian customs, get in the wrong lane and are “invited” by the border patrol to get out of the car and go inside for personal interviews. But, we made it! Extremely foggy.

Point Roberts is an hour drive inside of Canada but is part of the United States. Naturally, we need to check it out. Gorgeous place with a lot of history to it. Return to the States, having “seen” Canada. <grin>

Back into the US
