We have been told to try to stay off the Interstates but it wasn't to be for this stage of our journey. Partly because we had over 700 miles to cover in two days and partly because there aren't actually that many other options where we were heading. So onto 90 we went, towards Spokane (pronounced Spo-kan) in the east of Washington State. We passed through the Cascades quickly and down onto wide plains with many windmills.
Brunch was found thanks to the very nice young woman at the Clinique counter in Nordstrom, Seattle. The Yellow Church Cafe is worth a visit should you ever find yourself in Ellensburg, WA. Ham, poached eggs, homestyle potatoes, buttermilk biscuit (what Brits would call a scone). I was happily stuffed. We also stopped at her suggestion at the Wild Horses Monument, overlooking the Columbia River, before heading onwards along very straight roads.
Dinner was at Fire Artisan Pizza - really good pizza in a hip restaurant which is clearly a recent and very popular addition to the town. Staff were a little hipper than the clientele!
And so to bed, with Lottie who takes up the most room in a double bed of all the family!
