Dungeness Spit and Beyond
We left Seattle and went north to the Strait de Juan de Fucha for a four night stay on a bluff over looking the Strait and the Dungeness Spit, amoung the longest sand spits in the world(5 1/2 miles long).
Our home. From this lovely spot we explored both Port Angeles and PortTownsend. Hurricane Ridge was also on the menu.
Pat on the beach on a foggy morning.
The bluff trail at Dungeness Recreation area. On a clear day you can see Vancouver Island across the strait. It was also a good spot to watch the sun go down.
One morning we took a drive up Hurricane Ridge road and hiked in the high alpine meadows to catch some great views.
It was much drier on Hurricane Ridge than on Mt. Rainer so the flowers were not as abundant but we did see a few.
Port Angeles has a working port and a small downtown area. We found an interesting seafood restaurant called " The Jig and Lure". The food was good and the concept of no tipping coupled with their commitment of giving donations to the local homeless shelter was intriguing.
