The last day had come. I was sad but tired too and ready to come home. In the morning we went to Salt Creek tidal area at low tide. Walking on the slippery and jagged rocks was an interesting experience. The starfish, urchins and anemones took the day off from posing and the glare from the sun did not help. I focused on enjoying the moment and keeping my balance instead of taking pictures. Back through Port Angeles we walked along the waterfront where Strait of Juan de Fuca separates the US from Canada and we could see the Canadian Mountains in the distance. We stopped at a lumber facility where they were removing the bark from the trunks and tagging them before putting them in gigantic piles. We were surprised to see how much logging there was along some of the roads and we passed several spots during the trip where trees had been replanted. On the way out I wanted to go to a different lavender farm to take a few last shots and buy some lavender gifts. After getting lost, we found it but it was closed so we went back to the farm we had been to on the way in. Along our way back to the Seattle area we found a great old barn in a field with hay bales. The find was a nice way to end the photography portion of the trip before an early flight home the next day. I had been looking forward to this trip for a long time and I must say that Washington had really delivered. I found the variety in the landscape to be absolutely miraculous!
