After Hurricane Ridge we visited the Honda Dealership in Port Angeles where I insisted Helen buy warmer gloves and silk liners. She gets cold at 70. We then make some decisions regarding the route.

We ride from Port Angeles...

To Port Townsend...

Where we hop on a ferry to Whidbey Island.

We see our sister ship going the other way.

The ferry cut out lots of freeway riding around Puget Sound, but I'm not sure it was any faster. The crossing was over 20 minutes and traffic was very slow making progress a real chore all the way to Interstate 5. (The blue line and dots are our GPS tracks.)

We were surprised by how much this big boat rocked and rolled. After getting hot chocolate the Captain announced all motorcyclists should tend to the machines as the crossing was expected to be rough. It's not likely I could catch it if it started going over...

I think this bridge was leaving the island.

We finally find I-5 and turn towards Canada.

I spotted a big KTM dealership and stopped for parts I expected may soon be needed. Of course, no KTM dealer actually stocks anything.
