Jul 19, 2011 - Day 49 - Mt. Baker

Left the RV today about 10:30 and headed up to Semiahmoo Park about 5 miles from camp. The museum is only open Friday through Saturday, so we will have to go back. The first sign headed to the beach is the warning not to eat the fish. We walked the beach and enjoyed looking at all the rocks and shells along the beach. Not a swimming beach for sure even if it was 100 degrees! We stopped at looked at the Iron Chink machine that was used to process 30,000 salmon a day. It was patented in 1905. The full story is on the sign in the picture....
