The Indians Win

Ellie 055 Our excitement this morning was more of a hassle than exciting.  I was going to toast an English muffin for breakfast.  Our toaster oven has been with us quite a few years now, it was actually in our storage unit which we cleaned out last year.  Yes, we had no toasted English muffin for breakfast today!  The trusty old toaster oven decided to completely quit.  We had already been looking at new ones, because we were noticing this one was taking longer and longer to heat up.  So, we added a stop at Wal-Mart to our plans today.

The general plan was to go into Sequim for lunch, followed by a visit to the 7 Cedars Indian Casino a few miles east of there.  Dortha and Deb talked on the phone and made a plan to meet at the Mexican restaurant where we ate lunch the day we got here.  We left a little early to go by the Wal-Mart store.  They had the model of toaster oven we’d looked at so we just went ahead and picked it up.

The guys thought they saw an rv parts and accessories store in Sequim, and we drove up and down the main street before we finally found it.  They didn’t have much, but we looked around anyway.

Then it was time to meet Rod and Deb for a delicious Mexican lunch.  After lunch we headed off to the casino.  But today, I guess they needed my money to pay Deb‘s and Dortha’s winnings, so I came home with a little less than I started out with.  Especially after the expense of the toaster oven!

Here are a few more pictures from the last week.

Wally World...what would we do without it. Glad you saved some money to give to the casino! You will probably get it back someday.

Good Morning... Sounds like a busy but fun day... Mexican food is my favorite but I am the only one who loves it! So I don't go as often as I would like. The pictures are great... Especially the path through the woods because it is so beautiful it looks like a postcard.

Have Fun & Travel Safe
