August 28 – Travel from North Cascades NP to Olympic Peninsula

We arrived at the ferry terminal in plenty of time and rolled on after 10 motorbikes and two semis. The 30-minute ferry was full and the ride smooth to the Olympic Peninsula.

Our campground is a converted military fort that was used to protect the Strait of Juan de Fuca to the north. This post was Fort Hayden and has large bunkers that housed 8” and 16” cannons that were later used in Europe during the First World War.

After we set-up twice – I had two receipts and referred to the wrong one – we headed for the Olympic National Park Visitor’s Center in Port Angeles where we picked up the ranger talk schedule and directions to various part attractions.

Martha seems less anxious that we leave her in the RV with her 50 mg of Trazodone that she takes with a special meatball on mornings when we will be away from the RV. A 10 mg of Pepsid AC at night seems to settle her stomach so we have had no vomiting etc.
