I have been wanting to post more on my travel section, but it has been difficult finding time for it. Finally, here is a post about an Olympic Peninsula Road trip that Sam and I took last summer. Olympic Peninsula is in western Washington. The trip was amazing with breathtaking views. We spent 4 days and 3 nights (7 days if you count Seattle), but we could of easily stayed longer and visited more places. Instead of staying at hotels, we opted for more adventurous car camping, which I had never done before (it is not half bad!). As always, Sam and I took tons of pictures and I would like to share a few here. If you live on the west coast or plan to visit this area, this is a wonderful trip that I highly recommend. Here is an article in National Geographic magazine, which gives a detailed itinerary of this trip. We pretty much followed the itinerary that is given in that article with a few changes.
We started from Seattle and drove to Port-Townsend. Along the way, there were hiking areas that we visited and took nice pictures.
Can you find Seattle in the picture? Apparently, on clear days you can see Seattle from the this area.
There was a small shack where they were selling bbq and chicken roasts. We had roasted chicken and salad for lunch.I had bought that salad at Pikes place day before, but it stayed nice and fresh and it went quite well with our roasted chicken!
The road to Port-Townsend was very scenic. We had to stop every 10 mins or so and take pictures!
Even this old car seemed quite photogenic to us 😉We stopped at Pleasant Harbor Marina for a small coffee break!
Port-Townsend is such a cute town which reminded me of Sun Valley, ID. There was a wine tasting and a free music in the downtown when we got there. As you can see in the background, people were just relaxing and enjoying free music!
We had rice crepes with avocado and vegetables for dinner. I really like how lot of these restaurants offered choices of gluten and lactose free food.
And a coffee afterward!! Ofcourse a bit of modeling!
We reached Dungeness Spit quite late at night. Luckily found a place to park and slept in the car.
Dungeness Spit is the world’s longest natural sand spit. You can find many different bird species here.
I woke up late as usual and Sam had prepared a wonderful breakfast (as usual).
Our homemade stove, which later exploded 😉As soon as we got done eating, we went for a walk. Initially we were ambitious and thought we could finish the entire walk, but then we changed our minds!
