The Ferry to Port Townsend on the Olympic Peninsula (Washington)

Even though it was the middle of summer holidays, we were able to just drive up and catch the next ferry. The ferry left from Coupeville, a pretty little town that’s definitely worth a stop.

There are several sea creature skeletons in the red building at the end of the main pier in Coupeville. This prehistoric-looking skeleton is from a stellar sea lion. He is HUGE, and with really nasty fangs – I wouldn’t want to be in the water with him around!

    • We arrived a little too late to do much other than race around a couple of art galleries before they closed. And we were off the next day. But Port Townsend is definitely worth going back to – I have a bunch of things still to experience and the Lively Olive was one of them.
