Coupeville and Pt. Townsend overnight trip…
Wow… we did it! And survived to tell about it! Thank you, again, Vicki for the great pictures!
Yes, it took EIGHT “legs” on our first day on the road. The Rebel travelers left Olympia on the 7:35 am bus to Lakewood. Our other seven segments of the trip included Lakewood to Seattle, Seattle to Everett, Everett to Mukiteo.
From there we hopped on the ferry to Clinton, then bussed to Coupeville to spend two sun-filled hours in one of the oldest towns in the State. The snow covered mountain in the background is Mt. Baker.From Coupeville we caught the bus to take us to the ferry, which took us to Pt. Townsend.
Many of us decided to eat at Fins, a restaurant across the street from the hotel which had an outdoor deck. The weather was perfect for that… blue sky and temperature in the mid 70’s. Ahhhh…. the great northwest was at it’s best!
After dinner, we scattered… a few of us strolled down Water Street, which is the main street in town. We looked in windows of galleries, boutiques, the Maritime Center and other store fronts.
We were all on our own the next morning, agreeing to meet up again at 1:30 at the closest bus stop. The trip home was quick and simple compared to our trek northbound. We made a quick stop in Brinnon, then Shelton, and then home… all in 3 1/2 hours! The views of Hood Canal from the bus are exceptional!
One noteworthy fact: The bus and ferry fare for his entire 220-some mile trip was $10.50 for Regional Reduced Fare Permit holders. The adult fares totaled $23.60.
As always, the specific trip directions are posted under Pages and “trip directions”.
