Otters to Sheep

We left Port Townsend this morning and were sad to leave the Olympic Peninsula. We love the area and it is close to Jason for visiting. This morning, while still camped at Point Hudson, I noticed some river otters in the water. I grabbed… Continue Reading “Otters to Sheep”

Campground Flowers

The sky was overcast this morning, so I took the opportunity to get some pictures of the flowers in the campground rain garden.

Downtown Dog

June 27 Dart seems to be becoming a city dog.  When Regis has allowed Dart to decide where to go on their walks, Dart heads straight downtown.  I would never have guessed he would choose downtown. Yesterday, when I was taking Dart for our… Continue Reading “Downtown Dog”

Whales and Seals

We are staying on the water and enjoy watching the seals swim by and pop their heads up along the shore.  I could stay in this spot for months!  Regis enjoys watching the ship traffic make its way up and down Puget Sound. We… Continue Reading “Whales and Seals”
