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.

Moving Along

From Lake Crescent we traveled to Port Townsend. There was a park and ride spot just outside the main business district which we used. We caught a shuttle bus into the main part of town.

These are just some street shots of main street Port Townsend, plus the shot from the cab of the Mothership of Highway 101.

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.

Elliott’s Post

These images were either taken by our Brooklyn grandson, Elliott, or feature him. The location is still the Hoh River. It was such a nice day. This side of the Olympic Mountains has nearly 100″ of rain annually. Having a sunny, clear day is really a treat.

still waiting for a screen door as

the Freight Company, after waiting 6 weeks for the door, lost the shipment

so I’m now waiting for a replacement door, gratis of course, from the factory in Indiana.

Hoh Rainforest

Moss dripping from large trees and huge ferns on the forest floor. There was a nice hike from the Rangers Station to the Hoh River. We arrived in the mid morning time frame and there was already quite a few people parked and hiking the trail; people from all over the world. As we left around 2:00pm there was a lineup of vehicles, at least 60, waiting to get into the park.

It’s a pretty amazing place and well worth your time to drive 16 miles from Highway 101, on a very winding road, to reach the this National Park.

Images of the Hoh River in the next installment.

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.

Floral from Seaside

Motoring about on Big Red gave me a chance to see things I might otherwise miss.

It’s kind of like walking and doing street photography, but at a faster pace.

Note: One week away from our next adventure. This time we are going around the Olympic Peninsula, clockwise, if that makes sense?

Also, the screen door I ordered, from the Coachmen factory in Ohio, is on its way to Seattle. Should be here on the 24th. Once here, I will have to see what sort of hardware pieces I will need and maybe have time to install it before the next adventure.
