We woke up and got on the road from our cute little Boat Theme Room after a good nights sleep (read: we slept in). Along the way we passed a sign for the Lews and Clark National Park. We’d seen stuff all over with the Lewis and Clark names on it and we figured this would be the best place to check out.
Fort Clatsop isn’t that great. It’s pretty much a visitor center and remake of a 6 room fort. that’s it. Not really much to look at. There’s even a sign that says the fort’s location is only an estimation. However; if you’re interested in reading or listening to information about Lewis and Clark its great. We watched a little video and then determined there was nothing there we couldn’t get elsewhere so we headed on out.
From there we were on to Astoria where we stopped at the harbor and headed over into Washington. Hurray! we made it! After driving for quite a while up the coast of washington we were bored. Route 101 doesn’t really follow the coast in Washington like it does in Oregon and it’s nowhere near as scenic. After a while we decided to head inland to Seattle and call it a day.
Almost into Seattle we got a phone call from Heather who was in visiting from Portland for the day and we decided to meet up for dinner at Johnny’s Dock. It was a little pricey but the food and the service was great! Liam even got a private magic show!
We said our goodbyes after a great meal and it was on to the downtown Ramada for the night.
