Kennewick, Washington

Kennewick is on the banks of the Columbia River in southern Washington and just southeast of the confluence of the Columbia and Yakima Rivers.  We spent three days in Kennewick and did more than just get our RV plumbing problems resolved.  

We were treated to lunch by Jim’s high school friends Buddy and Nancy (Thank you so much!) who both worked in local schools before retiring. And we spent time with Jim’s sister Cathy. First we watched Cathy’s granddaughter, Grace, play fast pitch softball. Grace got a solid hit and made a great play at shortstop. (Cathy also has three other grandkids:  James, Chloe, and Emily, the kids of Cathy's daughter Megan and SIL James). We also visited with Cathy at her home and had dinner with her at an excellent restaurant in nearby Richland called Lulus.

The dogs were with us when we went to Grace’s softball game. Cathy brought her four-month-old lab puppy and we thought our dogs might like to play with him. But our dogs barked and jumped and misbehaved with Cathy’s sweet and friendly pup, Jake. We later took our two dogs to a Kennewick off leash park at Badger Mountain Community Park, where they were friendly and appropriate with all dogs and all people. Thank goodness.

One thing we did not have with us most of the time was a camera.  So no new photos this time, but below are two photos taken on a previous trip.
