Washington is an incredibly beautiful state. Another trail run this morning and found a path to a lovely hike for the kids with a great view of Mt. St. Helen in the distance.
We drove to Olympia and stopped at a park for lunch, then picked up 101 again. I love driving on the 101. It is such a picturesque drive. Water on the right, mountains on the left. Gorgeous.
We stopped at a little campground in Sequim, about 30 miles short of Port Angeles. People in Washington are great; funny, laid back. Interesting difference from people in Oregon. In Oregon, there are definitely a lot more misfits, people that march to their own drummer.
Another campground on water, Sequim Bay National Park, but this time salt water. Kids went swimming again. I refused. Too cold for me. Quite a few people in the campground were there with little boats to go crabbing.
The kids were in a wonderfully funny mood. Peter showed me how he "poops" pine cones. I haven't laughed so hard in ages. That games lasted for a few hours especially after Jack picked it up.
Nadia came up with a different Power Rangers song entitled "Hey, hey Park Ranger" and they serenade all the park rangers they see.
And the best one ... They seem to be in love with the name Juan de Fuca (the name of the straight that separates the Olympic Peninsula and Vancouver Island). I wonder why they like that name so much : )
They crack me up doing their own version of Count von Count from Sesame Street:
Juan de Fuca, two de Fuca, three de Fuca... Today's numbers brought to you by the de Fuca straights.
