More Family Research

Sprague, WA

55 deg. overcast, light rain, no wind.

Forecast = Overcast with a chance of a thunderstorm and rain showers. High of 70F. Winds from the SSE at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 90%.

It was a nice day again yesterday, so fairly early Jim was out and about, wandering around the park. When he got down by the boat dock, Scott, one of the owners was down there cleaning some nice rainbow trout that he had caught, at the fish cleaning station.

After talking to Scott for awhile, Jim came back here and watched the NASCAR race on TV.

As you know, Linda has been doing a lot of research on her family since we've been here. Well, the other day, she found out that her grandmother's sister, Who came out here to Sprague way back in the 1800's was supposed to be buried in the Macabee Cemetery which is only about 10 miles from here.

Jim found the cemetery on his "Street and Trips" program, and so after the race was over, he and Linda took CLT and headed out to try to find the cemetery and the grave. CLT said that they didn't have much trouble finding the cemetery and in fact, the grave was easy to find too.

It's located right across the road from that big tree in the photo above and is right next to the road.

After coming back here, Linda went back to her research and Jim took a little nap. ; )

I still don't know how long we'll be staying here at the Four Seasons Campground.  We may stay here until Thursday so that we can take advantage of the weekly rate.

Did you know that June is "National Accordion Awareness Month"?
