Seattle - Port Townsend - June 30

(Tuesday 3 July 2007) by Karin
Sneaked out of the building early this morning and took a bus to ......anywhere. Busdriver thought I was a little nuts I think. Ended up at Leschi Park on Washington Lake and did some people watching on a bench near the water, waiting for a store to open so I could get some breakfast. Ate my breakfast on a bench in the park but then moved to a more comfortable spot on the grass. Did some reading and enjoyed the beautiful weather. Stayed for a few hours before heading back into town where I walked to the Amtrak station to get some train schedules. Walking around with two heavy backpacks isn't the most comfy thing to do so I was glad when it was time to take the ferry to Bainbridge, a 35 minute boatride. Got a beautiful view of Seatlle from the ferry. At the other end I took a series of buses. Each bus would wait for the other bus if someone needed to transfer. Arrived at the HI Olympic hostel in 450 acre Fort Worden State park, Port Townsend, Washington, about 60 miles north of Seattle. Dropped luggage, had dinner and went for a stroll to check out the area. The park is a National Historic District and contains a network of trails leading through old artillery bunkers and gun emplacements to bluffs overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca and across to the Cascade Mountain range.
Tired from all this travelling.
Angel of Honesty travelled with me today again.
