Tuesday 27 August – sunny 28 Celsius. Left for Olympia and we stayed at Washington Harbour RV Park. It’s a big gravel parking lot and we had two nights at $31 a night. We set up and then went for a drive.

We ended up at Three Magnets Brewery which is a big building, and we sat outside and shared a flight. We didn’t like the beer or the look of their menu.

We walked over to Well 80 Brewery which is a great place. We sat on comfy couches at the front of the bar and play Trivial Pursuit board game. We shared a flight and then I had a glass of IPA and Clint had a barrel aged dark beer. Then we split a 10 inch pizza and some brussels sprouts and tots and soup. It was $42 total, food and beer. We played two rounds of their Trivial Pursuit night and we stopped was a great evening and we went home.

Wednesday 28 August –  hot and sunny. Drove to the State Capitol Building and took the 10 o’clock tour.  Our guide was a retired schoolteacher. The tour took about an hour and the building is beautiful and very relaxed. Hardly any security here, you go pretty well where we want. Lots of marble in this building. Our guide was good and very informative.

After we were finished there, we drove downtown to the Port and parked. We walked all around the waterfront, up-and-down for couple of hours.

Then to Tumwater Falls but there’s lots of construction going on. It’s a so-so place, we walked to the bridge on the river and then left.

Going to Port Angeles, Washington next!
