EEK! Astoria Bridge

So to give John a break, I took the wheel for the first part of our journey today. First, I drove up a really steep ramp with a curve in it, then I drove to the really high top of the two lane bridge and then coasted down and across. Yeah, sure I did. John drove and it made me feel sick just to be a passenger.

Most of today was spent getting to Port Angeles, WA. It wasn’t as long a trip as the GPS said it would be but it still took the better part of the day. We broke up the trip by a short stop to look at the Pacific County Courthouse in South Bend, WA, an old locomotive in McCleary, WA and lunch at Gwennie’s in Sequim. There, with what seemed to be the entire senior population of Sequim, we had a fresh Dungeness crab melt with avocado sandwich. It was quite good.

We got to our Hidden Haven B & B at 3PM but our instructions told us that there would be no checking in until 4 PM so we did some wine tasting at the Black Diamond Winery. The wine was mostly forgettable although we did buy a rhubarb wine. Then we stopped at the store to pick up something to cook for dinner, checked in, watched tennis and collapsed.
