Nov 4, 2019 - Elk & Audubon

We had a full day today. We decided to go looking for the elk herd that lives in Sequim, Washington. We drove all the back roads looking for them, we didn’t have any luck, but we did see a lot of beautiful areas on the drive. After looking for the elk we decided to visit the Dungeness River Audubon Center at Railroad Bridge Park. The Dungeness River Audubon Center was the first Audubon center in Washington State. It is the only Audubon center with a Native American tribe as a partner and the only center located by a salmon-spawning river....

Oct 23, 2019 - John Wayne Marina

We visited one of our favorite places in Sequim today, the John Wayne Marina. We love to sit and watch the birds. We have done a couple of geocaches here and love to just walk and enjoy the beauty of the water and the blazing trees. It is also perfect for picnics. John Wayne Marina was constructed in 1985 on 22 acres of land donated by the John Wayne family. John Wayne frequented Sequim Bay waters aboard the family yacht (the “Wild Goose”) and envisioned a marina in the scenic bay prior to his death. Eventually, this vision became a...

Oct 14, 2019 - Back on the Bay

We were packed and ready to roll early this morning. We drove to Coupeville to catch the ferry over to Port Townsend, Washington. We passed a lot of pumpkin farms on the drive, they were amazing. Our ferry appointment was not until 2 but we arrived at noon and they put us right on first. Our view of the water was amazing. We went inside the ferry to get a cup of coffee and took the binoculars to sit and watch the water as we crossed. We decided to go back to our RV, it had the best view. :-) It was about a 45-minute ride and were drove off...

May 29, 2019 - Sequim WA

Sequim WA Day 13: Tuesday May 28, 2019 We left the RV Park at 10:00 am and stopped to fuel at the Pilot Truck Stop located at the I-5 freeway exit/entry. We could have fueled when we exited to our RV park yesterday—and should have—the big trucks were backed up at the north bound exit and across the freeway overpass from the south bound exit this morning (Brian usually fuels at the big truck pumps because it is faster and they offer DEF at the pump). We turned into the car section (which was also crowed) and had to maneuver to get access to...

Sep 20, 2018 - Dungeness Spit

2018-09-20.Dungeness Spit It was a cloudy day today so we went to the Dungeness Spit Recreation Area. The "Spit" is a 5-6 mile long sand bar that curves in a big arc from the coast near Dungeness, Washington into the Strait of Juan de Fuca. From high atop the Olympic Mountains, you could clearly see the Spit's curvature with its iconic lighthouse at the end. Since the Spit area is a National Wildlife Refuge, we couldn't take Roadie and it was too warm to leave him in the car so we walked the trails of the Recreation Area instead, high above...

Sep 19, 2018 - Ferry, the Bunneys, Olympic National Park

2018-09-20 - Sequim and Hurricane Ridge, Olympic National Park We reluctantly left Orcas Island and sailed back to the mainland where we boarded another ferry in Coupeville to take us to Port Townsend and the Olympic Peninsula. Mission accomplished!! It was a beautiful day and we could see the snow-coned Mt. Baker dominating the skyline across the water. We drove along Rt. 101 to the lovely town of Sequim, Washington. There, we were the guests of Graham and Carin Bunney at their beautiful estate on Gaskell Farm Road in the middle of a lush...

Jul 10, 2018 - Sequim

/// Tuesday - July 10, 2018 A Travel Day: Today we make another short haul of 150 miles north on Hwy 101. As I was working my way through our departure routine I discovered that the rear under bumper storage compartment drawer would not close. I fussed with the damn thing for about an hour before giving up and just wired the drawer closed best I could. We finally departed Hoquiam by 10:00 A.M. Our route today would eventually take us further north on Hwy 101. The first part of todays journey was quite pleasant on a divided highway....

Aug 26, 2017 - Washington, So Far So Great!

August 26, 2017 Washington, So Far So Great! I've been mostly dry camping so my PC battery is only 80%. This is the Reader's Digest condensed version of my time in WA as of this evening. Camped at Cape Disappointment Campground and was not disappointed. Toured Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center. Trails and lighthouses. Lucked onto International Kite Festival in Long Beach and ate the most wonderful danish ever from Cottage Bakery – an “apricot star”. It was worth every calorie. Drove through scenery every bit as jaw dropping as what I saw...

Aug 18, 2017 - Backstories

Backstory (n). The set of background conditions and events leading to a real-life situation. During this leg of our trip, we’ve visited a few places where the backstory of the place was just as or more interesting than its current situation. While in Sequim, we decided to take a short vacation. We took the ferry (walk on, not with the truck) from nearby Port Angeles for a two-night stay in Victoria, British Columbia. We took public transportation to the very popular tourist destination Butchart Gardens. It was once a 55 acre limestone...

Sequim has several titles, The Blue Hole, Solar City, and The Lavendar Capital of North America.

The winter temperature seldom goes below the mid-forties while the summer rarely goes over 80 degrees. Both times we’ve visited the temperature stayed around 68-72...

Jul 19, 2017 - Quick Update

We're leaving Sequim today and heading 80 miles west to La Push! Although we're sad to leave Sequim we're also looking forward to being on the Pacific coast. Our RV park is right on the ocean and that is a beautiful, rugged section of the coast. There is no wifi at the park and from what I've heard from others no ATT coverage so we'll be out of touch for a few days. Our next stop will be Long Beach and I think we'll have wifi there so hopefully I'll be able to catch you up. I know I haven't told you a lot about Sequim except how much we...

Jul 13, 2017 - Lake Crescent and The Dungeness Spit

On Tuesday we drove to Lake Crescent, part of the National Park, located about 30 miles west of Sequim. It is a deep, bluegreen, freshwater lake carved by glaciers, and surrounded by the beautiful Olympic Mountains. It is 12 miles long and 624 feet deep and sits amidst the most beautiful forests we have ever visited, with huge trees shading ferns, smaller trees and moss and lichen covered logs. We took the two mile hike to 90 ft. Marymere Falls which is spectacular. The trail was very well maintained but since my experience at Acadia I am...
