The Sou'Wester

Our friend Karla, stayed here with her family, when she was 6 years old.
The Sou'Wester is a funky collection of vintage trailers, vintage cabins, RV hook ups and hotel lodging. If you are accustom to staying in fine hotels, then this is not the place for you! If you are accustom to roughing it and are looking for a different experience, then you will fit right in!
The Sou'Wester has free weekend concerts, bikes to loan, a sauna, artist's workshops and an honor system store (need a 6-pack? just stuff your money in the it!)
What is it like to camp in a vintage trailer?
"The Earl"
Where Mark, Carol and Samson stayed.
50's era trailer with full bed, kitchen, bathroom and living room.
A little warm inside during the day, no A/C just fans. But, it cools off nicely at night.
(oh, and one of their windows fell out during their stay....LOL)

"The Jet"
Where we stayed.
Loved the faux myrtle wood table and the doorbell!!
An eclectic collection of dishes and kitchenware. Between the 3 trailers, we were able to put together enough cookware and silverware to make it work!
"The Picnic"
Where Karla and her 2 dogs stayed.
Each trailer had a working record player!
Sunday Breakfast in "The Jet"
Cake and Eggs!
Sleeping arrangements in "The Jet"
Tegan dines in "The Jet"
Wine-ing outside "The Picnic" trailer.

Saturday breakfast at the "Picnic" Trailer.
Close to the World's Longest Beach!
28 miles of beach to "unleash"!!

Close to Oysterville.

River of Sludge/ Dog Bath

Well....the new well is not going so well.
Approaching 400' deep and still no water good enough to drink :(
With each foot of drilling, up comes glop and sludge that runs all over our property.
The folks are aghast.
While us dogs do not like the noise of the big drill, we do like exploring through the mud every evening when the men go home!
Today, we find our doggy selves at scrubbin' bubbles dog wash.
Why do we need to clean off that glorious mud? Why?

Hey, I'm going to be 8 years old in a couple of days!
This is no way to treat your "Birthday Boy"!!

Old Mother Hubbard Treats

You know the story of Old Mother Hubbard:
Old Mother Hubbard
Went to the cupboard
To get her poor dog a bone;
But when she came there
The cupboard was bare,
And so the poor dog had none.
Thank dog that and Old Mother Hubbard Baking Co. have dog treats and lots of 'em.
Here we are opening our monthly box to review.

Tegan is just learning to read, so we are letting her study the ingredients this month!
"Look Wyatt!'
"These biscuits have all the good stuff, Chicken, Apple, Carrots, White Cheddar Cheese, Whole Wheat Flour and Oatmeal......Mmmmmm!"
Old Mother Hubbard's Classic Original Assortment bone-shaped biscuits include Original, Chicken, Cheddar & Char Tar flavors. Old Mother Hubbard snacks are a wholesome and delicious way to say “good dog”! They make an excellent snack for training or for anytime you want to give a little extra love.
Put down the camera and dole them out!
Oh My, they are drooly, drooly GOOD.

Yes indeed, Lip Smackin' Drooly GOOD!
So Glad this Old Mother Hubbard's cupboard is Not bare!!
(and they come in a 3.5 lb. bag....because more is MORE BETTER!)
Thanks Chewy,
Wyatt and Tegan

Oh Well.....

Time for a new water source.
The old 100' well has crapped out and we need to go looking for H2O.
Hmmmmmmm, how hard can it be?
Tegan thinks she can run this big rig.
Maybe we could save some $$$ and have this Lakie do the drilling??
She does know her way around water....
