Moved on to Clallam Bay, only a 64 mile trip, but we took a very interesting country route out of Port Angeles, Rt 112. It was full of twists and turns and up and down a small mountain, at parts the road rounded and came back on itself, 10 -15 mph was max we could go. And a nice 9% grade down with twists and turns. Very scenic and actually not much traffic. After getting checked in, we drove to the furthest NW point in the contiguous United States-Cape Flattery. At the end of the 3/4 of a mile hike over a picturesque trail with bridges across wetlands, you get to enjoy the views from five observation perches with cedar decks and guard rails. The fog had rolled in so didn't get the views we had hoped for but we were cable to see sme of the caves and some puffins lounging on the rocks. We had gone thru a couple of interesting small villages on the way. Sekiu is a small fishing village, with a marina and a couple of RV parks on the water. People bring their RV's and boats and catch salmon, ling cod and other reat fish in the Straits of Juan De Fuca. On a clear day you can see across the staits and see Vancouver Island, ships transitting the channel, fishing and pleasure boats.
