Annnnnnd, I had the cursor in the wrong place, so surprise. Pictures first today. I am not going to fight again today. The words are at the end! With a picture between paragraphs. I amaze myself with my ability to master Blogger!
|Our mode of transportation. I don't know if this is the one we were on - but going/coming I am sure it was one.|
|As I said - rain forest biome! Thick, thick forest. Really pretty.|
|Couldn't resist another picture of the water with the mountains around it. We were returning to the ferry here.|
|I stayed in the car this time. If you look carefully ahead, you can see this is a piece of heavy equipment ahead of us. You can't see them but on the left, there are two school buses taking kids home from school.|
Allergens abound in this area presently. I take my antihistamine daily (probably over a greater period than I should), but I have that sometimes itchy throat which is now a little sore at the junction point of the nasal cavity and upper throat. That symptom could either be a cold or allergy. Even after all these years, I can't tell!
Delaney's party was nice. I didn't get caught with Christina's dad this time. Every other party, he attaches himself to us like glue. I guess when we said he couldn't do a "day hunt" with his kids (all adults but one plus MY son) on our property, he doesn't like us. Ah, too bad. I referred him to a neighbor who had stocked his place with exotics. The least Chris could get by with to hunt there was about $2000 a gun! But he always brags about having so much money. I guess free deer would be better for him.
OK - today we go across the sound to Olympic National Park. Let me just say, G really didn't know where we were going. We drove and drove looking for the entrance. We finally decided we would pull into the next gate we found. Their entrances are not like any other park we have visited, After getting home we believe this was the main gate.
By the way - we have a senior pass that we got when we took the grands to Alpine, Texas. We went to Ft Davis when we were there - and now we get into the National Parks FREE! Free is always good.
|On the horizon, blending in with the sky and haze is Mt Rainer. I took about six pictures to try to get it - this is the best. You still can't see it!!!! But it is there!|
