Day 1, after lunch...

After a relaxing lunch, our bellies and tanks full, we pressed on. We passed by Forks, WA, the location of those "Twilight" films. Well, Ben's a big Team Edward guy and Jeff a Team Jacob guy, so they screamed OMG and wanted to stop and take photos, but I implored them to keep going. So sorry if any of y'all wanted pix of Forks.

Anywho! As we got closer to Port Angeles we passed the amazingly gorgeous Lake Crescent, WOW, the water was crystalline and DEEP.


And the road running along side was leisurely and smooth


But the road was narrow with not a lot of places to stop, so when we found one we pulled over...

...right across from this neat, small, waterfall. The photo doesn't capture just how steep this hill is or how high it went.


Trying to get artistic at the lakeside

Well, we finally made it to Port Angeles and the ferry. There were 8 or so other bikes waiting, so we got in behind them. A couple I recognized from ADV, but forgot to get their names. When discussing our planned route they confirmed that we made the right choice by planning route 20 on the other end of the trip.

This is them waiting to board


Ben and Jeff wait to board


And we tie down



And go topside to catch a glimpse of Port Angeles as we depart



Hey, lookit my iPhone GPS

Now, being the super-nerds we are we immediately take out the iPhones and iPads and start downloading pix and updating Facebook statuses. Our table on the ferry looked like a NOC.


We near Victoria and get some more shots of our first MC ferry ride.




And clear customs with out a problem...(but it was HOT)
