A Trip on the Ferry

Last week we traveled to the wilds of the Olympic Peninsula to stay at a condo in Discovery Bay (midway between Port Townsend and Sequim). We packed up kids and provisions and headed to the ferry dock with the intention of making the 2 or 2:30 ferry. Imagine our dismay when we get to Edmonds only to discover a 2 hour ferry line!

To make things even more interesting Zane decided he needed to go potty. And not just the water a bush type either. Since we were quite stuck in the line and had not moved for awhile I ran into the closest grocery store and let him use their bathroom. All was going well until Eric called to tell me that they were moving and we were going to have to walk to where there were or lose our spot in line.

So walk we did. Walk and walk and walk. After about a mile and a half of walking down the middle of the street we finally found the van again. I have never been so relieved to see our beat up ride in my life. After we rejoined our crew it was another hour before we got on the boat.

The kids did great even with all the waiting in line. I couldn't have been happier with them. And of course they loved the ferry ride. But really, who doesn't love a ride on the ferry?
