Washington Day #5

We woke up early to walk down to the lake.

Looking back at our “lodge.”

We considered taking the ferry, but it’s a 2 hour tour!  2 hours on the water with 6 children… let’s pass!  They enjoyed the boats and kayaks at the dock instead!

After breakfast, we headed down the road for a hike, but soon found that the trail was too steep for the children….

Loving my new carrier — and the little one who loves being in it!  🙂

We decided to drive down further to a shorter hike to see the world’s largest spruce tree!

And there you  have it, the largest spruce tree in the world!

From here we are going to have lunch, see a salmon hatchery, stop at a beach, and then on to Forks!

I beleive the name of this beach is Ruby Beach — Ed or Uyen, please correct me if I am wrong…  You will not see Matthew or Vince here.  Matthew had fallen asleep after the hatchery so Vince stayed in the car with him.

Leaving the beach (just like entering) was a bit tricky.  We had to climb over all these dead branches… but the children did so well, especially Alex, “our guide.”

We had dinner at a pizzeria.  Then went to our hotel:  The Forks Motel!

It’s supposed to rain a lot… we’ll see what we end up doing!
