 Slept until 10:00. Another foggy Washington morning. Stretched and exercised for 90 minutes. Ahhhh. Feels great! Wonderfully sore muscles.  We are now in upper Washington on Puget Sound. The morning fog here really is quite beautiful, amongst all the trees, birds, and the bay.

Halloween coming soon, everyone showing up for the Halloween celebration. It’s the biggest event in the RV park other than Fourth of July. Canadians showing up en masse, eh? Park will be full, scarecrows everywhere, people setting up decorations at their sites. Saturday will have costume and site judging, pumpkin carving, pancake breakfast, dinner, a lot of activities.

Learn a lot about playing pool from Ron and Terry, who somehow tend to win.

Frustrated at how often our phone GPS provides directions that land us in who knows where, we purchase a Garmin GPS at Costco. What a difference! It’s like having someone with us who lives in the area their entire life, and knows every store and road.

Crossing Puget Sound from Coupeville to Port Townsend, WA

On moving day the ferry from Coupeville to Port Townsend makes getting across the bay quick and easy. We park at the front of the ferry, sit in our car, and enjoy the view. As we arrive at Port Townsend, the charm of this town and its Victorian styling is quite apparent.

After quickly setting up, we still have time to drive to the top of Hurricane Ridge in the Olympic National Park.  Gorgeous.

First sunshine we’ve seen in a week. Crisp mountain peaks with snow on them, marine layer clouds (fog) rolling up the canyons, clear blue skies, 46 degrees, 5250 feet elevation, and 17 miles of twisty paved road to get there. Concluding another wonderful week on our adventure.
