From La Conner Thousand Trails RV & Camping Resort, we drove to Coupeville Ferry Terminal. We were on the standby lane and didn't get on the first Ferry but we got on the next one. But because of that, we were able to explore Fort Casey State Park. Here's the link to that adventure A Ferry Ride to Port Townsend From Coupeville  When we arrived at Port Townsend it was late in the afternoon so we decided to spend a night in the area. We drove to Port Angeles and checked in at the Riviera Inn. Nothing special with the Inn but it was clean, cheap, and it suffice our need for the night. The next day, we checked out early from the Inn, got our breakfast, then head up Hurricane Ridge Olympic National Park. We stopped at the Overlook-Victoria B.C.

In February of last year, Joel and I decided to drop/cancel our medical insurance since we are living in Philippines and the medical cost there are reasonably cheap. We thought we wouldn't need it  since we haven't been using it for at least couple years and we've been paying $1000 dollars a month. Sometime in March the cancellation of our medical insurance got finalized and in April 4th we found out that I'm already 12 weeks pregnant.What a shock! We were just going to stay in Philippines and give birth there but after talking to someone in the US embassy in Manila, Joel and I decided to come back here in US due to paper works and whatnot. In August 6th, I'm already in my 28th weeks pregnancy when we arrived here in Fairbanks, Alaska. I was hoping and praying that I'll give birth naturally. However, things didn't go the way I hoped for and wanted to be. In September 12th, I gave birth to a beautiful son c-section due to he was breach and 6 weeks early.
