Day 18, 19, & 20: Walla Walla, WA

~ Just the Facts ~
Camping:  Blue Valley RV Park
Restaurants:  La Cocina de la Abuela, The Maple Counter Cafe, Clarette's Diner
College:  Whitman College

So, Walla Walla, WA was unseasonably hot.  Hotter than Spokane had been.  We'd planned to camp at this cute little spot called Chillville.  However, they only offer 30AMP service which means, for us, that we can only run one air conditioner not two.  Given the well over 100F temps, we decided to cancel those reservations and stay at Blue Valley RV.  It was perfect for us.  Lots of power, nice clean bathrooms and laundry, quiet and pleasant.  My only wish would have been for SHADE to help keep the motorhome cool.

Even running the AC constantly, we were not about to cook meals in the FMC so we tried the fine dining that Walla Walla offers and were very pleased.

Swedish pancakes at The Maple Counter Cafe -- I've been told I MUST learn to make these!

Walla Walla sunset at about 10:30pm.  Finally cooling down.

We spent the 4th of July in Walla Walla.  Greg and Gage went to the park and enjoyed the festival that was put on which included great food carts and vendors.  Ruth and I chilled out at the coach -- the heat was really getting to us.  

We beat the heat by seeing movies:  Inside Out, Terminator Genisys, Jurassic World, and Spy.  Loved all of them especially Inside Out and Spy. 

On Monday, we got to visit Whitman College, the last stop on our whirlwind tour of liberal arts colleges in the northwest.  Great school, loved it.  Stayed on the list! 

Ruth's name in lights!  :) 

What we didn't do in Walla Walla?  Wine tasting.  It's a huge wine area but it was just too hot to do that.  There were some really good museums that we thought about visiting, too.  Again, too hot.  We'll have to come back again.  More to do and see in Walla Walla.
