Last time we were in the area we just whizzed past Sequim barely noticing it but that along with a conversation with a cousin, it did put the place on our mental map. Today it was our destination. We started with haircuts at Great Clips then the Museum & Arts Center. If you’ve read the book The Boys in the Boat about the 1936 Olympic rowing team from the University of Washington, you might recognize Sequim as the hometown of Joe Rantz. They have a George Pocock racing shell and several displays about the team and Joe Rantz. We learned about the recent American Experience episode about the team and plan to download it from iTunes. We were also facinated by the story of the discovery and excavation of the Manis Mastadon. From there we indulged in a Mixed Berry Scone and coffee at Rainshadow Cafe, found a few geocaches, walked through the street market, and generally enjoyed a sun blessed afternoon in this lovely town. We capped off the experience by driving to Salt Creek Park on the Strait of Juan de Fuca and along the shore of Crescent Lake. Back at camp we indulged ourselves with a rack of ribs from the Bibbsy’s concession here at the KOA. Yum!

All Because of an Eclipse

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
