Our trip

To make a long story short, our trip was great! Oregon and Washington are certainly beautiful, and we had a blast seeing the sights. I enjoyed the unusual weather more than Isaac did, with it being warm and sunny and rain-free for so many days in a row. What can I say? I brought the CA sun with me! We drove up to Medford the first day, to the coast and stayed in Ilwaco, WA the second day, spent the third day in Seattle, explored the Olympic Peninsula (& sights mentioned in the Twilight saga) on the fourth day, and went to church and saw historic Port Townsend on Sunday. We saw four temples, a rainforest, many lakes & mountains, crossed a number of bridges, visited a training facility for dogs for the deaf, ate in the rotating restaurant in Seattle's Space Needle, found a plaque dedicated to the fictional Dr. Cullen on the Forks Community Hospital, and found out that you cna't pump your own gas in Oregon, among other things. :) It was a blast. Some pictures for your viewing pleasure; I had a very hard time cutting down to my favorites because we saw SO MANY gorgeous sites, but here are the ones that made the cut...
