Today was no different than many of the others we have had. We awoke to the sound of rain on the roof. Since it was laundry day, we got moving slowly and finally had the laundry done by lunch time.
lunch we wandered around town doing a few geocaches, one of which took us to
the library behind the museum. So we
decided to visit the museum while we were there. The museum had some of the history of the
native peoples of the area as well as the history of the town as well. The
After dinner the rain finally stopped and the sun tried to come out with some blue sky appearing. We climbed in the car and made our way across the sound to the area of the fish hatchery hoping to see some eagles. The salmon raised at the fish hatchery return there, but really have no place to go so they become a smorgasbord for birds and other animals. There were sea gulls but no eagles. We were surprised to also see sea lions grabbing fish there as well. Farther up the road, in another area where the salmon migrate to, we found the black bear that has been coming down to eat the fish. After watching for a while we finally made our way back to the trailer to get ready for our trip out on the sound tomorrow. We are hoping the blue skies tonight are a good omen for the weather tomorrow.
