Canada through the mist
We also got to meet up with my friend Denise and her husband in Seattle. We had a great time catching up, touring the city, and getting the hang of travel by ferry.
Bench/shrine for Kurt Cobain
Pike Place Farmer's Market has been continuously operating since 1907

And here is the underground view! Denise and Kyung treated us to some fun tours, and we got a pretty good intro to the culture and history of Seattle.
We visited the Dungeness Spit, but were too cold and tired that day to hike the whole thing before high tide (the spit is 5.5 miles long!). We just explored the various driftwood shelters, stone cairns, and did some bird watching - bald eagles!
We hiked to Sol Duc Falls and up along the River Trail.
Art hike! Webster's Woods in Port Angeles is a pretty special place.
