Miles 300 or so
Shortest post EVER.
Big travel day today. We are scheduled on the 10:30am ferry from Victoria to Port Angeles, Washington. We have to arrive at the ferry terminal by 9 so that we can get through customs and other red tape.
The ride is 1 1/2 hours an is pretty smooth right up until the end when we start rockin and rollin with the waves. Fortunately it smoothed out quickly and we glided into Port Angeles without a hitch.
Our destination is Salem, Oregon – about a 5 hour drive south. However, when we reach Portland just at rush hour(s) it turns our pleasure cruise into a standstill for a solid 2 hours!
We finally made it out of the greater Portland area and into Salem. Found the Comfort Inn (a step up from camping) and got Chinese take out to eat in the room while watching mindless tv. Done.
