The Hurricane Coffee Company in Sequim, Washington

Our friend, Dave, recommended
we go to Hurricane Coffee
Company while we are in
Sequim (pronounced Skwim).

There's lots of coffee
choices here.

Sweets too!

Add some milk, cream,
sugar to your coffee.

Seating by

world go by.

Look at All Those RVs at Eric's RV Performance Center in Sequim, Washington

When we arrived at
Eric's RV Performance 
Center, it was very crowded.

It's a good thing we have
an appointment.

Eric Davis was turning two RVers away when we arrived.  The shop is slammed with
repair work.

We were directed across
7th Avenue to the
JCPenney parking lot.

RVers love to share information on RV repair shops.  Rachel and Ed, a couple we met at Mountain Lakes RV Resort in Lytle Creek, California, emailed my Eric to tell him of Eric Davis' reputation in RV repair.  His shop is rated among the best on the West Coast.  

Eric got the call at 3:30 pm
to move the motorhome
to our overnight spot.

The front end of a 5th wheel
can barely be seen next to
the Safari motorhome.

We have a 50 amp electric
hook up for the night.

Our new RV refrigerator
cooling unit is waiting
for tomorrow's installation.

It's time to empty the refrigerator and freezer...

Frozen foods are in the gray
cooler with the purple top.

Foods that we use every day,
milk, eggs, cheese, etc.
are in the red cooler.

Partial jars of pickles, jelly,
chocolate syrup etc. are

Ewww.... That Smell! We Need Our Refrigerator Repaired at Eric's RV Performance Center in Sequim, Washington

My Eric called Good Sam Extended Service Plan number to notify them that ammonia leaked from our Norcold Refrigerator AC/DC refrigerator.  This is the first step in getting our Extended
Service Plan to cover the cost of a repair.

Sequim (pronounced Skwim).

Eric's RV Performance Center
has a large selection of
RV parts & accessories.

Deep Cycle batteries too

The one fixture no one
wants to talk about, yet
everyone has issues
with, the RV toilet.

 A quick examination at Eric's RV Performance confirmed that the ammonia is gone and we need a new RV refrigerator cooling unit.  The call confirming the need of this replacement part was made to Good Sam Extended Service Plan and the repair has been authorized.
The cooling unit has been ordered and will arrive tomorrow.

We browse the racks

Eric mentions that our refrigerator isn't working.  A staff member recommends we go to Eric's RV Performance for the repair.  She gives us directions and that's our next stop.

All Things Twilight in Port Angeles, Washington

Port Angeles is my last stop on the "All Thing Twilight Tour" on the Olympic Peninsula.
Forks is a small city with just 3,500 people.  It doesn't have a wide variety of shops, no movie theater.

Port Angeles, 57 miles away,  is
the place to go to on the northern
Olympic Peninsula for movies,
serious shopping.

East First Street is in the heart of Port Angeles' downtown shopping area.

Bella & Edward ate
Mushroom Lasagna with
soda on their first date in

Sequim is pronounced

Eww!  What is that smell?  It's ammonia!  I don't have any ammonia cleaning products.  I turned on the exhaust fans and told Eric that the smell isn't just in the front of the motorhome, it's further back, in the kitchen area.  Eric diagnoses the problem:   The RV refrigerator cooling unit is leaking.  The refrigerator is off right now.  We'll try to restart it at the campground.

The Hall of Mosses Trail in Hoh Rain Forest

Eric & I turn onto the
Hall of Mosses Trail.

Moss is everywhere.

Eric examines

It's truly a primeval place.

Oregon Spikemoss hang
from the trees.

Eric gets a shot of
this giant slug.

We coined a new term
for this type of tree:

Eric stands beneath
a mossy arch.

We think a nurse log
provided nutrients for
this very large tree.

Fungi grow on tree trunks.

Eric squats inside
this felled tree.

This is the perfect setting
for a sci-fi movie.

...or a scary fairy tale
