In Port Angeles, we booked a hotel room and then headed for the end of the U.S. We drove out highway 101 and then turned up 112 heading through Joyce to Neah Bay. The drive was spectacular and we especially enjoyed the group of bald eagles at Neah Bay. They were right there between the highway and the water, just about 20 feet. Some were flying around and others were perched by the water. Neah Bay is in the Makaw Indian reservation. It’s fairly depressed, but still in a lovely setting.
On Monday morning, we had a nice breakfast at Café Garden, reputedly the best restaurant in Port Angeles, and were on our way back home, sort of. We went back toward Joyce to Angel Crest Gardens to get a hanging basket. We saw them on Sunday and just had to go back. There was a huge variety of wonderful plantings. We found one we both really liked and then headed back in the direction of home.
We took a slight detour to a Lavender farm where the DH bought some smelly soap. I like lavender, but it was all a bit strong for me. Patrick enjoys the smelly stuff much more than I do. After the detour, we drove to Kingston and took our ferry ride back to our side of the water and got home shortly after 5:00. The day in Seattle was beautiful, so we grilled up some steaks on the BBQ (courtesy of the Duke – thanks again!) and called it a day.
