The 7:30pm ferry ride from Victoria to Port Angeles was gorgeous. We saw two different pods of orcas during the 90 minute trip, and the sun was setting just as we approached Port Angeles. It was a bit of a tight squeeze on the ferry, but no issues:
The light was perfect as we were leaving Victoria:
There were three cruise ships in port:

Back to the Airstream:
After disembarking at Port Angeles around 9pm we drove about an hour and 45 minutes south on Highway 101 to Hoodsport, where we're now set up (well, we're parked, but not unhooked or plugged in — we are level though…I used ALL the blocks!!). It was late and we didn't want to be annoying, so we made the least racket possible and just decided to deal with the rest of it in the morning.
Tomorrow we plan to hit Taylor Shellfish Farms, just a bit south of here in Shelton, WA for some of our favorite oysters: Shigokus! It looks like they also have Olympia oysters (the teeny tiny ones we had up at the Willows Inn on Lummi Island) so we'll probably need to get some of those too.
So far, the place we're staying in Hoodsport seems nice, but I'll have to report more tomorrow when it's not pitch black out. (Bonus: stars!!!)
