Sequim, WA

On Friday, we move on to Sequim (pronounced Skwim).  She's a picture-postcard pretty town, seen here with Mt. Baker in the background.

Sequim, situated on the Strait of Juan de Fuca, engages in the usual coastal pursuits.





Camp is located at the 7 Cedars Casino - some 5 miles east of town.  



It's a newer casino with a quiet lot and pleasant views.  




Picturesque John Wayne Marina is just down the road. 




Sequim is also home to the Lavender Festival so the town is gaga over all shades of purple.  You can even purchase a peck of purple peppers!  



Last night the 6 of us attended a Barn Dance at Nash’s Organic Produce Farm.  Yee-haw.



The Toolshed Trio offered a toe-tapping mix of rock and bluegrass



and the dance floor stayed busy.



Earlier in the day, we hiked the Dungeness Spit.  A scene to make a beachcomber drool.

One can walk the 5.5 mile one-way to Dungeness Lighthouse (as Suzanne recently and so valiantly did) but we turned back about 2 miles in.  This is as close as my camera lens got.



We gawk for a while.



The scenery is glorious here.  Gayle and Debbie got a good long look at a seal and I’m sure Gayle’s photos will capture the moment, so stay tuned for that.

The way back.



Here we are making our way to the trailhead crammed in the back of Chuck and Carla's jeep.

Eat. Hike. Laugh. 
  

Next stop: Port Townsend, WA.

  1. It's been fun! Shame you didn't get a photo of our seat belt escapade, but it would have been hard to capture that in one picture.

    1. I think we need to master clapping before we move on to photography.

  2. Appears you are having the trip of a lifetime. Love the pics of the wine, and the sailboats. I think you can add photographer to your list of accomplishments.
