Setting up camp

We left Seattle around 1:30pm and headed to Edmonds to catch a ferry. We found that one car just didn't have enough room for four people and all our gear. So, David was driving Wanda's car with his son, Jared, as a passenger and I was driving my car with Wanda as a passenger. We lucked out and got to Edmonds in time to catch a ferry with no waiting...and just barely made it on the boat. During our drive from Kingston to Sequim, it was drizzling a lot and I was sure our night would be miserable.
We arrived at camp around 4pm. On the short drive to our camp site, we saw a huge raccoon run across the road with something in it's mouth (looked like a fish to me). We quickly set up the tent. We were lucky that the rain was very light and stopped by the time we were half way finished.
After dinner, the state park we were at was having a presentation from a Mikah Indian. She shared with us stories about her tribe and passed around some beautiful pieces (tools, hat, headband, baskets, etc.
Everyone was pretty tired and decided to go to bed. Wanda and I had cots...David and Jared shared an aerobed. I think we were all asleep by 9:30pm. Before I fell asleep, I chuckled to myself at the symphony of snores coming from Wanda and David.
