Here is the first installment of my vacation over the weekend to the Washington coast. To get to our destination we opted to take the scenic route (always take the scenic route) which is going all the way up and over and around the Olympic Peninsula instead of down and through Tacoma and the big cities. Going this way included a ferry ride, one of the reasons I wanted to take this route. I think ferries are one of the many things that make the PNW what it is. This ride included lots of fog, something I have missed so much living on the east side of the state the past couple of years. These sorts of rides always take me back to my middle school days and early high school. To get to some of the away meets for track and cross country we had to take a ferry and that was one of the only reasons I ever rode a ferry when I was younger. They will always in some ways be connected with pre-meet jitters and nerves. But I'm ok with that. It was the perfect way to begin this adventure. A fellow PNW blogger Amanda from Amanda k. By the Bay did a PNW Love post on Ferries awhile back. Check it out.
