May Day Trip–Port Townsend to Port Angeles

Filed under: Longer Trips — tomlarkin @ 11:51 am

Got an early start and arrived at Port Angeles at 2 PM. Tomorrow I cross the Straits into Canada, only about 12 miles.

I rode the ebb tide out into the strait at a terrifying 11 miles per hour:image

It was a perfect morning. I drifted off Protection Island for a while, listening to the bird sounds:

Downtown Port Angeles is very pleasant. I rode my bike along the waterfront trail:

Past Hollywood Park, where many families were enjoying the warm Sunday afternoon:
