On the way there, we stopped off at Christ Church Cathedral for a moment of quiet and meditation. A haven of peace and tranquility in the heart of a beautiful city.
Now after a quick dip in the pool and a satisfying stint in the sauna, we are settling down to our favourite meal of pain, vin, et Boursin, and various other delicacies to round out our hotel room picnic.
The Plan was to get up early and get to the ferry in Port Angles- 44 minutes away- driving from Port Townsend. I was going to catch the ferry at 8:15 am.The rest of the crew was going to go to Hurricane Mt. and Sole Duc- to the Hot Springs. I would have loved doing that too BUT I have always wanted to go to Victoria Island British Columbia and the Butchart Gardens.

Once there, most of us had bookings in various hostels, but the German tourist whose-name-I-can't-remember and me we didn't have anything. Then, with my usual luck regarding accomodation, the choices were: hostel #1, the best one, full; hostel #2 (where I stayed on my first trip, the only one then I believe) not as good and full; and hostel #3 where they had said by email that they still had room.
... was helping one of our Pelicans with a bead necklace and I turned around and she pointed to the porthole window where I saw that creeper guy's face! He was waving at me and tried to get me to go outside into the hallway. I just turned around and continued to help the kid with the necklace. Good thing our kid zones rooms are locked.
Not looking forward to waking up so early for immigration tomorrow.
