Taking a nap, 20080714mo1811

It's a little after 6:00 PM now. I'm planning to get a few hours of sleep before the ferry ride to Canada at 9:30 PM. From about 2:30 this afternoon until now, Jay and I walked around Port Angeles a bit and also got some food to eat. Some photos of our excursion are below.

We walked south west along North Laurel Street toward 1st Street and saw some interesting murals.

Below are some close-up views of the top mural.

We turned left (south east) on East 1st Street and in a few blocks saw an interesting house built on a cliff.
After a little ways, we turned around and went north west up East 1st Street which becomes West 1st Street after Laurel. At about 3:00 PM, we arrived at 117 East First Street we found Country Aire Natural Foods store. They had Clif bars on sale for 99 cents each (they are usually about $1.70 at most stores). there must be a nation-wide sale going on because the New Pioneer Co-op in Iowa City also has them on sale this month. Country Aire is an excellent store, with an expansive selection of foods and other wellness products.

We walked further along (north and west) First Street and found a nice restaurant where we both ordered their Santa Fe Veggie Burger with salad. Below is a photo of mine part-way through lunch (3:51 PM).

After eating, we went to a coffee shop to get Internet access. I was able to catch up on some e-mail and updates that were needed on the website. Around 5:00 we were back at the ferry parking and loading area. The vehicles were ready to load. We would be waiting for the 9:30 PM ferry, however, since this departure had been filled with reserved riders.

I walked around for a little while, taking photos of ships along the shore.

We've parked in the first row of vehicles getting on the ferry, so it means we should be one of the first vehicles out of the ferry once we reach Canada around 11:00 PM this evening. There may be some customs and/or immigration check-in procedure once we land, but I'm guessing it won't be as involved as when we return.

So, that's kind of a summary from our afternoon. I'll be sleeping until our departure around 9:30 PM. At that time, I'll probably post more updates.
