Short ferry ride, short day


Fort Ebey SP – Old Fort Townsend SP

24,7 km, 2:05h, Ǿ 11,8 km/h


At 9 am I was ready to go – and it was almost dry. The Ranger showed me on a map which trails I could take to get back to the Highway. Unfortunately I made one wrong turn and had to get back. Those 15 minutes made me miss the Ferry from Keystone to Port Townsend, I got pretty wet again and had to wait 1 ½ hours for the next ferry. While I was waiting I ate a soup at the café next to the terminal. Being on the ferry (30 min ride) even the sun came out. In Port Townsend I stopped at a grocery store and bought the huge sandwich you can see on one of my pictures.

Though I didn‘ t go very far it was a hard day. At 2:30pm I already reached the campground. I pitched my tent, boiled some water for coffee, walked down to the beach and read for a while. There was nothing to do, but I had to make a decision. I still didn“ t know if I wanted to cycle around the Olympic Peninsula or just go south on Highway 101 and then get to the coast later.
