We decided not to camp out with the RV because it looked like there was mold from the water damage and we didn't have time to fix it before leaving. So instead, we booked a hotel in Wenatchee. We got a really good deal at Best Western Chieftain Inn. The hotel was very clean and smelled good. Our room had a fenced in patio. We were able to park right next to the room so loading and unloading was very easy. The room had a microwave and fridge. They also had a little Keurig for coffee. There was a heated outdoor pool and hot tub. Complimentary hot breakfast in the morning as well.
I would highly recommend this hotel. We enjoyed it very much.
Dining: Taco Loco- Seems to be a popular local restaurant. Very small with few tables. This was our second visit here. This time I ordered their featured dish. Don't remember the name but it had shrimp with bacon and carne asada. It was very good only because it came with seasoned grilled peppers and onions. I used to not like those things, but I do now. The steak and shrimp weren't seasoned, but the peppers and onions added lots of flavor to the dish. It was also served with tortillas. DH had fish tacos and loved it. DD had masa boats. They seemed to be fried and kind of hard to eat. The dish was kind of plain, but DD liked it. All in all, we like this place. The hostess/server is great.
Mai Lee Thai- This also seems to be a local favorite. Super friendly service, but the food was okay for the most part. It was on the sweeter side. We ordered Phad Thai-this dish was not to our taste; too saucy and thin noodles; Phad See Ew: noodles were over cooked but the flavor was good. Panang Curry with Chicken had good flavor. Chicken Satay was really good. Somehow we got our Thai Iced Tea on the house. We were well taken care of at this restaurant with great service. I wouldn't order the Phad Thai or Phad See Ew here again, but we would probably try other dishes.
Crescent Bar-B-Q- This is a food truck. They have a permanent sign out front so it looks like they are building the restaurant, but in the mean time serve out of the food truck. Their menu looked great although they didn't have some of the things I wanted to order on hand. DH ordered the brisket sandwich with baked beans and coleslaw. He loved the sandwich and baked beans, but wasn't happy with the coleslaw. DS ordered pulled pork sandwich- it was good but could have used more barbecue sauce than what they put on it. DD ordered barbecue chicken sandwich and she loved it. I order the cheeseburger-pretty good. All sandwiches were served on a ciabatta roll; I prefer a regular hamburger bun. Their fries were cooked perfectly. I got the garlic fries and they were definitely garlicky and yum.

We took a drive to Quincy from Wenatchee on Hwy 28 (Sunset Hwy). It was a really beautiful drive of an area we hadn't seen before. Lots of apple orchards, vineyards, and we even found the concord grapes-yum.

For our family golf outing, we went to Rock Island Golf Course. This was a really fun course and although it is walkable, it seemed to take forever to walk. By the time we were done, our bodies were tired and sore. It took us about 5 1/2 hours to finish and we weren't even waiting for anyone in front of us. It was very windy-not sure if it always is. The back nine was really nice as it wound through an apple orchard. We had a blast playing together and it always amazes me how good my kids are at the game. I, too, had some good shots if I do say so myself. :)

We only spent a couple of days in Wenatchee, but we had a good time. The weather was nice, but when we got home it was still raining. :(
