The Olympic Discovery Trail


I’m back in the US!

I had a lovely sailing this morning on the Coho Ferry, from Victoria to Port Angeles, Washington. Cousin Betty dropped me off, and I soon got to chatting with the many other cyclists on board, all bound for various adventures.

The ferry itself was beautiful; I loved the midcentury industrial vibe (including those windows, and that green!) on the 1959 vessel.

It was a bit chilly and windy to stand outside, but the scenery was beautiful during the sailing.

Upon arrival, I dropped off my trailer at the home of my Warmshowers host Lillian, and took off to explore the fabled Olympic Discovery Trail. I only managed to see about six miles of it—I headed west, whereas tomorrow I’ll take it east, on the way to Port Townsend via Sequim—but the scenery did not disappoint. Autumn has begun peeking out from my forest photos these days, and it’s very photogenic.

After stopping at the natural food store deli for dinner, I returned to the house and met Lillian and her cuddly cat George. We chatted about bicycling and traveling (she has traveled half the 750-mile distance from Port Townsend to Ketchikan, Alaska in a rowboat by herself!!) before turning in for the evening.

Tomorrow I will ride the Discovery Trail to Sequim, where I will catch a bus to my next destination of Port Townsend. I’m looking forward to a beautiful journey.
