Port Angeles and Sequim

Took a little day-trip to Port Angeles today. We heard there was a Farmer's Market and were curious to check out another area up here. PA has a very large commercial port and the surrounding area is pretty industrial.

The Farmers Market was kind of a bust. Very small, about 8 vendors in a small transit center. Oh yea, and the temp was somewhere between freezing and Antarctica. We spent about 5 minutes at the market, just enough time for me to get a very yummy pork tamale.

On the way back we stopped off in Sequim and found some amazing countryside and a great campground in Dungeness Bay. While driving around we actually spotted a bald eagle sitting in a field. Never seen one of those in the wild! It's hard to get any info on population numbers. I looked all over the internet, but most of the info is a few years old. I was able to find out that they are still considered a "threatened" species here in Washington, but quite a number of them winter around the Puget Sound area.

We also discovered a couple of wild kite surfers in their natural habitat. one thing this area has a lot of is wind and water.
