|I really really enjoyed the mac & cheese @ Hillside Quickie Too|
From one of my visits to Seattle, I drove down to Tacoma and out onto the peninsula. For weeks Peacetrain Charlie had been raving about Port Townsend, so that was my first objective.
|the new and improved Tacoma Narrows bridge|
THIS is a 4 minute education in what happened to the original bridge
|We biked out to these 1940's era artillery fortifications.|
I met up with Charlie right away and he dialed me into most of what the town has to offer.
|We caught the local farmer's market.|
|the boat making museum|
|checking out the Free Box in the early a.m.|
|the Port Townsend Skatepark is satisfactory.|
I said my good byes to Charlie and rolled out of town.
|Port Angeles was the next stop.|
|stopped for some coastline sightseeing on the peninsula.|
|did a few hikes down to the water.. Goonies style|
|the town of FORKS got a good park recently|
|The bowl wasn't too big....it offered a lot.|
|This bowl in Hoquiam surprised me pleasantly!|
|Naked Falls along the Washougal|
|a local badass handled the backflip without incident|
So before crossing back into Oregon, I did some river swimming scouting along the Washougal. Found some of the gems I'd been hearing about. I decided to investigate the Wind River Hot Spring too.
|In the past you used to be able to cross private land, but NO LONGER. I ate a few of there blackberries and went and had dinner at PROPER EATS.|
