Raymond Area

This is a continuation of our story about Raymond, Washington, where Kathi and I spent a month in July and August 2009. Raymond is a town of about 3,000 people in Pacific County. Just to the south of Raymond is another small town called South Bend. Most of the industry in town is based on usage and availability of the Willipa River-- fishing, boat building, and shipping from a small port area.

A small town this size it did not take us long to see everything. A month was way too long to stay. The nearest casino is the Lucky Eagle in Rochester, WA. The casino is managed by the Confederated Tribes of Chehalis Indians. We took the one hour drive for several trips to the casino during our stay in Raymond. I think the casino was the highlight of our stay in Raymond, even though we did not have a lot of luck there.
