Olympic Peninsula Adventure

Image
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. From there I made a reservation for the Ferry back to Coupeville. The Ferry was full until the 5:15pm sailing time, so I went ahead and made that reservations.  We had a nice drive up to Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center.  Here's the lin

Leaving Abby

Image
I wish I have $3K laying around so I can take my Abby with me to Philippines. She has all the vaccines, certificates, and import permit that are needed but the problem is the airlines has weight limit policy of 70lbs or less  with the kennel. Unfortunately, Abby is 79lbs without the kennel and to have her fly with the pet transport services it will cost from $3K- $5K and that's only from Seattle. To fly her from Alaska to Seattle, it will cost us another $600+ I don't wish to be rich, but right now, I wish I am. Abby is 11 years old. We have her since she was one year old. We found her from the free add in the newspaper and fall in love with her since the first time we saw her. She's been with us since then and been all over Alaska, Washington State, Oregon, and Canada. She loves swimming and running but she's an indoor dog. As for my other dog, Farcom, we had to change all our flights and paid the whopping few hundred dollars of fees just so we can take him with us (

Midnight Sun Run 2011

Image
I had such a great time last night running the 10K Midnight Sun Run. I did the race for 59 minutes and some seconds. There were at least 3500 registered runners and walkers and I've seen a lot of people that I have not seen for a long time but most of them are just cheering on the side of the road and having a good time. It was a great and fun night and the weather was awesome too.   Warm-up before the race The Finish Line click here to see the rest of the pictures Midnight Sun Run 2011
