Another cloudy and rainy morning, but we didn’t let that stop us from exploring the area. We actually put about 220 miles on the Jeep today.
Our first mission was find a post office. We enjoyed the big beautiful flowers in front of the Port Gamble Post Office.
Someone suggested we eat at The Oak Table Cafe in Sequim so we did just that. We were very impressed. They specialize in handcrafted breakfast and creative lunches. I don’t usually promote individual business but am making an exception for this one.
The rain was intermittent and we never did see the sun, but we kept on going.
As we drove through part of Olympic National Park we stopped at a point called Salmon Cascades. The salmon were jumping, trying to make their way up stream. Several people gathered to watch the show.
Then we stopped for a little hike through the Ancient Groves. The half-mile trail in this little section of rain forest took us through some really cool moss-covered trees and some big tall trees.
We never did make it to the ocean. It was getting late and it would have taken us a couple more hours to get there and back. We did not want to be driving home in the rain, in the dark, on roads we are not familiar with. So home we went. The ocean will have to wait.
