NOTE: This will be the final posting for the "Adventure 2013" journal, we will start new Journal starting with our next posting.

We drove through Port Angeles to Sequim, the lavender capital of the world, we did some shopping prior to heading up to Hurricane Ridge, named because the winds routinely get above 75 mph (hurricane strength winds). What a spectacular view. There was a doe and her fawn just laying and grazing 2 feet from the walkway, not at all concerned by all the human gawkers taking pictures. Needless to say the drive up was difficult because of the shear drop offs without any guard rails, especially going back down hill. Joyce was our next stop, a town on the Strait that dates back to 1858, if you blink you would miss it on Hwy 112. The depot museum was closed but the Hardware store / Post Office was open. We saw PO Boxes dating from 1858 and the 1920s. There was an old fashion gas pump outside, how many of you remember them, we do.... dates us. We stopped at Fort Hayden, which is located about 200 yards from where were were staying, only thing left is gigantic bunker. We went to Tongue Point also about 200 yards from our RV site, it is the best scuba diving site on the west coast; however, it is also the most dangerous because of it's currents, rocks and winds.
