We woke up this morning to a snowstorm. No really, it was coming down like crazy. None of it stuck and it only lasted about 30 minutes, but it was heavy and looked really cool.
We headed out for Bellingham which is a 30 minute ferry ride and about 50 miles north of where you disembark in Coupeville. The boys were pretty excited to be driving onto a ferry for the first time. It was actually my first time on a large ferry as well, so I guess I was equally excited.
We headed North on State Hwy. 20 and it was beautiful and sunny. We drove through some absolutely gorgeous countryside and quaint little towns. The view when you cross over the bridge at Cape Deception is the stuff of postcards.
About 10 minutes out of Bellingham we hit more snow... the weather and sky here is so dynamic. This is one of those places where if you don't like the weather, just give it 15 minutes and it will change. Again the snow was coming down like mad, but ran it's course in 30 minutes and you could hardly tell it ever happened at all.
Drove like crazy to catch the 4:30 ferry back. If you miss it, it's an hour and a half wait for the next. We made it on with minutes to spare... All in all, a very fun adventure today and something the boys will remember for a long time.
