While in Oregon, we visited the Bonneville dam to see the fish ladder. What most impressed me were the Pacific Lamprey’s attached to the fish window. Notice their little teeth.
We decided to take the scenic route as we headed north, closer to Seattle. That turned out to be a longer trip than planned. We were hoping to get close enough to Mount St. Helen’s to get a view (if the weather cleared). When we got close to the mountain, the road was closed because of snow. We had to turn around which required disconnecting the tow vehicle. It was a pretty drive, but made for a long day.
We met up with our son, his friend, and Coco (his Bedlington Terrier) and toured the cute little town of Poulsbo on the Kitsap Peninsula. It has a Scandinavian theme with a fantastic bakery (you have to try the Viking Cups) and a wonderful coffee house. It is very dog friendly. We visited a park at Point No Point and walked on the beach and a short trail. Then, we went back to Poulsbo and had dinner with the dogs outside on the waterfront. The weather, scenery, and company were outstanding!
Regis, Dart, and I went back to Poulsbo this morning for some coffee and we sat on a bench looking out over the water. The people were very friendly. Between the food and the people, this is going to be a nice area to spend a couple weeks.
