Heading South on Highway 101

We left Port Townsend and headed south on Highway 101, making our way to a family cabin just south of Brinnon, Washington, along Hood Canal. Above are two images of Hood Canal and one of our son, Ian, cleaning off the roof of he cabin. I usually have the roof duty, but this Spring I didn’t make it up for cleaning, etc. The cabin is surrounded by tall evergreens.

Lake Crescent

 

Lake Crescent. The image with the kayaks near the lake is from the opposite side of the lake where we stayed. The other three images are from the shore of the lake where ew stayed one night. Our grandson, Elliott, is featured in one of those photos.

Very scenic area. The clouds would pass over the lake as you see. I think I have one more image of the cloud formations that I will post next time.

 

Photo credits: Ian King took the three images on his iPhone 5 and my photo has my watermark.

Adventure#2: Olympic Peninsula

Our first night out we spent at Kalaloch Beach. Our site was within a short walking distance from the Pacific Ocean. Basically “roughing it” as we had no hookups. Pretty rustic, but secluded. Our Brooklyn grandson, Elliott, above hanging out with grandma on the beach. The steps down to the beach are behind that wall of large driftwood.

Was a fun night.

Adventure#2 to be continued.

Seaside Pond

This pond was adjacent to the camping area where we stayed.

The cloud formation came through one morning. It looked menacing, but was harmless. Being close to the Pacific Ocean the weather can change rapidly. Fortunately, this year, we had a rainless week with mostly scattered clouds and sun. In years past the weather did not cooperate.

Twilight in Idaho

The night before the eclipse there were some clouds hanging about. The sky turned this color, sort of a prelude to the celestial magic that was to occur the following morning.

Note: It took me about a dozen attempts to capture the actual color of the sky/clouds. My daughter is my witness as she was standing next to me asking: ‘Did you get it”? The pressure was on as the light was fading, to find the right camera setting.

Leaving Seattle

Over the Cascade Range and into Wenatchee, WA. Headed towards Benton City, our first stop on the way to Weiser, ID. A longtime friend of our son in law has a ‘cottage’ on the land that is a vineyard, which his family owned till last year when they sold and retired. Mark’s friend, Alex, decided to buy the two cottages adjacent to the vineyard to live in and rent out. Amazing place, as you will see in following posts.

We followed this older ‘ship’ for a few miles on I90. On the back is the words: El Apartamento’. You never know what you are going to see on road trips. The cloud formations were interesting throughout the voyage.

Enjoy and safe travels.
