Staying at Port Hudson Marina and Rv Park

Our first day here has exceded expectations.  First, you should know that this is not a deluxe paved site resort with pool, clubhouse and tennis courts.  It does have water, sewer, and 30 amp hook-ups but it's a little scruffy and the sites are close together.  The place has a worn look to it, but we don't mind because we are here for the view and we love it.  This is certainly on the top of our list of places we'd come back to.

When we arrived yesterday we checked in at the marina office, and got asked the usual question.  Where are you from?  We are still struggling how to answer.  Even though we now have the same street address as several thousand other full-timers it just doesn't feel right to say Sioux Falls.  So I usually say we are from Michigan, but now have a SD address.  Maybe we'll figure out a better answer as we go along.

This morning we awoke to fog, but it has burned off and we have been on our first walk of the day.  Mollie  joined us as we took a leisurely walk around the marina and harbor.  Like I said before, "nuthin better than messing around with boats".

On another note.  I'm a sucker for the Geico ads.  Do you remember the tongue twister about Woodchucks?

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
He would chuck, he would, as much as he could,
and chuck as much wood as a woodchuck would
if a woodchuck could chuck wood.

Yes I'll admit it, I'm easily amused.

Until later

Howdy neighbor,
We have a Sioux Falls address also. I'm working at a campground and find that Sioux Falls address all of the time.

Hi, thanks for becoming followers of my blog. Point Hudson is one of our favorite parks! I agree with your assessment about the "no frills", but you can't beat the view! The people that run the office/marina are pretty friendly, too, which is nice. They recently put in wifi, and that's a plus. Enjoy your stay there.

You are at the campground with the bed & breakfast at the end...in the field by the bed & breakfast is where the bone yard was for the carnival when we were in Port Townsend...the Chinese restaurant facing the water is the best!

Looking forward to seeing you on the 28th!

Have a blessed day!

Thanks for joining our site as a follower and following along with our adventure. We don't have so much of a problem with the question "Where are you from?" but its the question "Where do you live?" that we stumble on.

You pictures are gorgeous, the sky is so blue.

Love the woodchucks!

Ruth and Kevin

Thanks for following our blog. We've actually been following yours too for quite a while (lurking)! The Pacific Northwest is definitely on OUR bucket list!

When we visited Anacortes, we stayed at the casino RV park. We've also stayed at the city park in Oak Harbor. We've also stayed at Fort Ebey State Park, but that's when we had a smaller motorhome. We'll be back up that way next summer with friends. Have a great time!
