Port Angeles: The Journey Continues

About an hour from Port Townsend is another port city, Port Angeles.
Many people know this city for one of two reasons: its where you can catch a ferry to Vancouver Island, BC, Canada (specifically to Victoria) and just UP a winding road from the city is Hurricane Ridge, one of the most amazing areas of the Olympic National Park -
a viewpoint I am particularly fond of.
But the city itself has many interesting attractions...
among them public art
 loved this!
Ediz Hook -- a sand spit that extends out from the city into the Juan de Fuca strait
(and is a great place to shoot photos of the Olympic Mts that tower over the city, the strait and the bay. It's also a great place to find little rock sculptures like this,  
watch sailboats come and go
(SO wish it had been a clearer day over the mountains--sigh),
kids play,
ducks swim
and more!
I LOVE the spit and always go there when I am in Port Angeles.  
More public art...
don't you love art?
Of course you're just seeing half of 'him'...
Definitely NOT public art.
Nope! More like a resident of the city.
The person I was with asked me to get a photo of this beautiful parrot--
being a parrot lover, I complied:)
And last
(because I DO need some sleep before Monday chores begin...)
a photo I shall call
"history and yellow duck".
Have a great Monday...
more later.

Not so much as when I was younger:( But I do love to travel whenever the opportunity presents itself:)
I hope you do get a chance to travel outside the Gorge (although the Gorge is SO beautiful living or/and visiting there is quite the adventure)!
Blessings, Aimee
