July 8-9, 2019 – days 6-7.
I enjoyed a day off the trail visiting friends in Port Townsend.
We had a breakfast meet-up. Then continued the reunion with Chris & Carrie hosting dinner on the deck of their new house. Teriyaki Tuna. Grilled pineapple. And much more.
On the morning of the 9th Diana and I went over to Fort Worden for coffee. Deer and bunnies graze everywhere in PT.
NEW down by the harbour is a totem.
Doug’s retirement hobby / job is developing fitness monitoring apps. He’s much into solar energy, as well.
His latest electric bike is the Elf 2fr. It’s a superb product.
Doug and Diane drove me to the Bainbridge ferry where they were picking up a friend arriving from SeaTac.
That ferry delivered me and my bike to downtown Seattle where Tam met me at Ivar’s.
Ivar’s is a Washington State institution.
In fact this was already my 3rd Ivar’s meal in Washington State. Love the place!
I’d come to Seattle in order to cycle the Burke-Gilman Trail, a 27-mile rail to trail.
It connects with a others including the Sammamish River Trail 10.9-mile.
About 8pm I wildcamped. Hoping it wasn’t going to rain too hard during the night.
Watch today’s cycling route.
