Casino hopping

We are at the Little Creek Casino at the junction of US-101 and Washington 108 (map).

Yesterday we had another beautiful morning on the coast, and got rolling a bit after lunch. After a quick stop in Aberdeen to unload our "donation" pile and pick up some groceries, we headed east to the rest area at Elma.

Unlike many states, which are closing their RV sanitation facilities at rest areas, Washington has been beefing them up, and the Elma facility has a modern four-lane dump station. The rest area, on the eastbound side, is perfectly positioned for the hordes of rigs coming back from the coast. We pay a registration surcharge for an RV here, and this is one of the things that the surcharge funds -- I have to say, it's good to see the money going to good use.

108 winds its way through logging country, and we had a scenic drive, landing here in the late afternoon. This casino also has a dedicated gravel RV lot, and there were perhaps a dozen rigs here last night. Signing up for the players' club got us $10 in cash, which we promptly gave back in the restaurant.

In a few minutes we will head out for Poulsbo, where we will stop to make a conference call, en route to our destination for the night in Kingston.
