Postcards from the Olympic Peninsula


Wish you were here!

If you have plans to visit the Olympic Peninsula, here is a little sneak peek...

Postcards from the Olympic Peninsula

We had so much fun driving the loop. Yes, it took all day, and no, we didn't stop at Hurricane Ridge (but we will next time!) The drive along the south side of Hood Canal was stunning and wonderful. Lake Crescent was the most beautiful turquoise-blue I have ever seen and the wildlife was easily photographed. We saw two lighthouses, the New Dungeness Light and the Destruction Island Lighthouse. Unfortunately, you couldn't get close enough for a good pic of either. We stopped in Dungeness, but alas, no crab restaurants, I'm afraid. *smile*

I'd never been to Ruby Beach, (and Netanya was right), it is completely breathtaking. And, we even found a wonderful little restaurant in Hoquiam to end the journey - how pleasant!

We fully enjoyed the PNW sunshine...my mother would be pleased.

How beautiful and concise! Is there anything left for you to see for the first time when you return? ;-)

Thank you for the postcard, front and back. You are the perfect travel guide -- you and your Navigator!

Aaaaah!

The mountain views were awesome! The one-day excursion looks great. Thanks for the recon mission.
Can't wait 'til June. Anxious to discuss the details later.
