Rainy Days are here!

What to do on a rainy day?

Foggy PondWhat a wonderful week of rain and cooler weather.  Not only am I appreciating this change of pace to our hot summer but I am also glad for the firefighting folks working on fires around Washington State.

It looks like the cool weather is with us for a while and so this makes me start thinking of things to do on a rainy day.

New Movies:  Recommended by AARP’s “Movies for Adults”.  Here’s a couple worth considering-

  • A Walk in the Woods starring Robert Redford and Nick Nolte.  This is Bill Bryson’s 1998 account of his failed quest to walk the Appalachian trail.
  • I’ll See You in My Dreams starring Blyth Danner and Sam Elliott.  Humorous, late life romance.
  • Coming in November: Spectre.  The lastest in the James Bond series with Daniel Craig as Bond.  Can’t wait!

Books:  Checbooksk out the great book library here in the Gathering Place at Stillwaters.  This is an honor-system library (take and return at will).  New and different books coming in all the time so come and browse the selection.

Museums:  The local gem is the Veteran’s Memorial Museum in Chehalis.  See their website here.

Also, we have the new King Agriculture Museum.  See what this is all about here.

The Lewis County Historical Museum is in downtown Chehalis and is a treasure-trove of historical information and goodies.  See the details here.

Enjoy these cooler days for a while and check out some of these local activities.
