Part 2 -the Olympic Peninsula

Posted on

This area is so gorgeous, it’s hard not to fall in love with it! If I didn’t have the plane tickets already booked, not sure if I would have left.. Smile Here’s my attempt to capture  the amazingness:

Ferry ride from Seattle to the beginning of our roadtrip (yep, I’m double-fisting that coffee)

They just pack the cars in like sardines, then we drive off once we float across to the opposite road!

We detoured to La Push beach & its amazing islands for lunch!

Of course, we had to stop in Forks! Smile Amazing what a little book can do to an unknown area..

And the lengths they go to use that bit of fame:

The HOH rainforest is so awesomely green! Everything is covered in moss..

Driving around Lake Quinalt, we watched the fog roll off the lake

We also found waterfalls, word-record sized trees, AND had our first Washington rainfall = <3!

So in LOVE with this place! If you haven’t visited the Olympic Peninsula before, you simply must! Definitely on our list of possible places to move in the future!

 

 

Oh and if you need a place to stay near Olympia, this B&B style house is amazing (and awesomely cheap!) I had so much fun staying here, plus she is such a good baker!
