_Lake Chelan has always given us a warm welcome (or is it the family that lives there is doing that???) and this visit wasn’t any different. We joined a full lot of RV’s that arrived at the Mill Bay Casino in Manson about the same time as we did. Fortunately we were able to get one of their 50amp hook-ups and the opportunity to stay free for the week. Louise did spend some time across the parking lot, but fortunes were with her. She didn’t get rich but she did better than break even. Sue and Dean made us feel right at home at their beautiful home high above the lake and fed us extremely well. Dean and I made several trips down to Chelan each morning for coffee and then on one morning a drive to the top of Chelan Butte. Sitting high above the lake with all the cell towers and looking down, way down, the lake was amazing. It’s too bad that all who visit Lake Chelan don’t have the opportunity to make this drive. Just after driving off the main roadway out of town we made a left up the hill and immediately found our roadway turning to dirt and mud…not bad, but not a super highway either. Steep, oh ya… Looking down over the lake also shows just how many orchards there are
_AND how many vineyards have grown over the last 10 or so years.
_With this in mind we thoroughly enjoyed a little “wine tasting”.
