Time at the Beach

We spent a few days at Quinault Beach Casino in Ocean Shores, Washington.  I'm going to copy Dave's idea and report on the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

First the 'good.'  The casino offers free RV parking during the week and we were there Monday thru Thursday.  They offer $6.95 dinner selections in their restaurant Sunday-Tuesday and Thursday and $2.99 breakfasts that were pretty good.  As you might imagine,we ate out a lot.

The best of the 'good' was that we ran into some fellow WINs who were staying there too.  This is not a picture of them.

The 'bad' was the fact that there wasn't really much to do.  We walked on the beach, checked out the town, and drove around, but nothing really impressed me.  Could I be overdosing on beach?

And the 'ugly' was the aggravation of the noise and fumes from generators which ran continuously.  Hey, I use our generator to run the microwave and, sometimes, to blow dry my hair.  But if you need to run it for hours and  hours, you need to get hookups.  It was not hot, so don't think that was the reason either.

Okay, I'm off the soapbox.  


  1. Some people just don't get it that there is no reason to run that generator 24/7.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. That was not the prettiest of beaches. Hate it when they allow cars to drive on the beach.

  3. Does Ron use the genny to blow dry his hair? ;c)

  4. I'm trying to remember if it was Ocean Shores on a day outing to the coast when we were living in Tacoma in 1983. I remember we drove on a beach, and somehow the name seems familiar.

  5. We are headed up I-5 next week, hope to be on Hwy 101 near Olympia by Wednesday night, and then we are going to go up and around and down 101...will try to stop and say hello if we can, depends on how mom is doing (might have to rush back if they decide to do surgery earlier than we think they will). --Dave

  6. We ran into the same "ugly" during the one big RV rally we attended and didn't like it at all.

  7. Missed this one! I don't like being around RV's for that very reason...but I have seen people pull a generator out of the trunk while they're in a tent too...and not to mention the fumes are unbearable!
