Friday, May 19, via Olympia, Washington, to Salem, Oregon

Today was a real experience. Fortunately, I looked up the ferry information to see what the address was. Where we had to be at the ferry loading spot in Vancouver an hour early, here it was an hour and a half to an hour beforehand. This was for US Customs.

First, we were visited by an ICE agent who checked our passports. Then, I took them and a form to a window and was checked by more ICE agents. The trip took an hour and a half. The cars were really packed in — I almost couldn’t get out to go upstairs on deck.

When we arrived in Port Angeles, Washington, we just drove off. It looked like a nice place, but we didn’t stop, since we needed to get as far as possible. e did make a brief stop in Olympia, the capital of Washington.

We zipped down Route 101, the road we’d taken on the way north in much of California and part of Oregon. For the night we’re at a Best Western in Salem.

Tomorrow we need to get somewhere around Sacramento. You notice a theme here: state capitols.
