Karla: Our first day, our first campsite, our first morning…all fantastic! Our meandering path took us along Padilla Bay estuary, then on up the broad Skagit Valley through old dairy farms and ending in a densely forested, almost empty campground. We have figured out how to make coffee with our new setup and the sun is shining through the Doug Firs as I type this. The only sound besides the birds chirping is Scottie batting away the mosquitos. All in all, quite idyllic.
