Stop 2 – Port Angeles

May 19, 2014

Finally I have my camera back in operation and don’t have to rely on my tablet (perhaps then I won’t subject you to any videos!)

Port Angles is home to our friends Jim and Gail (sorry Jim and Gail there are no current pictures here of you guys!) and it’s only a 1.5 hour ride on a ferry across the Straits of Juan de Fuca. Port Angeles is also the gateway to the Olympic Peninsula, a national park, a forest reserve and cities such as Seattle, Tacoma and further south Portland.

Believe it or not this old ferry is still around but now in use.  Love the design

No this is not the Coho ferry from Port Angeles but I wish it was.

And then it’s back to food and friends.  A great gathering with of course plenty of food and laughter.

My current recipe book experiences - great middle eastern dishes

And a new cookbook I am introduced to with wonderful Middle Eastern recipes

After eating far too much time for a walk on Dungeness Spit with Jim Lichatowich, the author of ‘Salmon without Rivers’ and ‘Salmon, People and Place’. Great reading about the current state of the salmon industry and the environment

A great little marine centre with lots of live exhibits for kids to watch and learn from
