To ‘The Peninsula’
Our new home in Port Angeles, on Washington’s peninsula was a few hours away so we left Olympia early. We traveled on the western side of the Puget Sound and up along Hood Canal. There were Native American reservations, businesses and casinos along the way. At low tide we could see people scratching for clams in the sand and bald eagles resting on tall pilings. We took a hike to the top of Mt. Walker where there was a nice view but flat lighting. Further north, in Sequim we stopped to see a lavender farm where a man was pressing lavender for its precious oil. I liked the (very strong) aroma but Brent didn’t so I took some quick shots, bought some lavender lemonade and we headed to lunch and the hotel. After checking in we went to the Olympic National Park visitor center and a nice ranger answered all our questions about the places we wanted to visit. We ended the day at Lake Crescent where we relaxed by the water while taking in the beautiful scenery and peaceful sunset.
