Day 166: 8.24.12
Alrighty! Round two of photo catch-up coming right up!
Last Friday was a very long, busy day and the start of my “work-cation” adventure with Sofia and Jason. Although I knew I was going to be working for a good portion of the trip, I was still excited to be taking a first official “vacation” as a family.
The morning started off early with a drive around the sound to pick up Sofie from where she had been staying at my parent’s house. After picking her up we hit the road to Port Townsend where we were catching a ferry out to Anacortes before our final leg of the trip which was another ferry out to Orcas Island.
It was a great day out, sunny, warm and just darn beautiful. By the time we arrived at the Port Townsend ferry Sofie was zonked out asleep already. She woke up once we got on the ferry so we got a chance to check out the views, I’ve posted a few photos from our first day down below.
Once we got to Anacortes though we had a bit of a wait; it was about an hour drive from the first terminal to the one that would take us to Orcas. Once we arrived there we found out that we wouldn’t be making the ferry we were hoping to catch, so the 4 hour wait until the next one commenced.
It was hot, and a little cramped in the car, but not too bad. Sofia and I walked around every once in a while and even went down to the beach near by. It was probably only the 2nd or 3rd time she’d seen the ocean up close before, kind of cool, I think.
By the time the ferry came around we had had dinner and Sofie was starting to get pretty tired. She spent the last of her energy running around the ferry, she had a blast with the wind blowing in her face. The views were amazing too, the sun was just setting and the skyline was awesome. Once we got off the ferry and took the short drive to the inn, Sofia was out like a light.
I had completely forgotten to take her photo of the day, so I apologize for her sleeping position. However, I hope these other photos make up for it!
