So, based on nothing more than whim, we think we're going to structure our trip to Washington this way.
Fly to Seattle. Stay over night. Go tidepooling with Minette at Lincoln Park. (Minette provides chest-waders. What a hostess!)
Drive and take the Edmonds Kingston ferry over to the Olympic Peninsula. Stay several days.
Return to Seattle. Do some stuff. Fly home.
Beaches? Craggy landscapes? Meteorological phenomenon? Chilling out and doing very little? It all sounds good to us!
Will this be like packing for an outing in the Bay Area? Do we need to bring garments for every possible type of weather, and assume that we'll see most of it? As it is, I'm packing my galoshes for tide-pooling.
Does this sound like fun? Can anyone help us fine-tune our plans? Will the people who gave us enough advice for a month of fun in Seattle forgive us for forsaking your fine city?
