Have you already been to Port Angeles? So if you’ve ever been to Port Angeles, you most likely came here via car. There is a ferry that comes from Victoria in Canada, but I’m guessing most of our listeners don’t live in Victoria. Although there are worse places to live! So you get to Port Angeles, by car, and there is one highway that gets you here from Seattle or Portland. It’s the 101.  The 101 is a great highway, much of which is just a two-lane highway, so you just go the speed limit. People out here on the peninsula are just more patient drivers. You just go with the flow and you’ll get to the destination. You get out to Tacoma and Seattle and the aggressive drivers start to show up. As you drive out here you feel like you are leaving a lot of the city life behind, and you do. Silverdale will be your last stop for most of the big stores and that’s definitely the closest place to do much shopping other than the Walmart in Port Angeles. You’ll pass through Sequim, which looks like you should pronounce it Sea-qwim, but it’s Skwim.  Sequim bay is beautiful. There is a popular casino there. We kept hearing that they had great food at the restaurant, but my experience there would say otherwise. They have some live music, and we actually went and saw a cover band. So we have that going on. If you need anything from Costco, you’ll want to stop in Sequim. It’s only another 20 minutes to Port Angeles. Now I’ll give you a little hot tip. If you want to go somewhere for breakfast in Sequim, you want to go to the Oak Table. In fact, if you want to go to breakfast in Port Angeles, it’s worth the 20 minute drive to Sequim to go to the Oak Table. Just trust me. They have a german pancake that will knock your socks off. Just outside of Sequim, I think it’s called Carlsborg, is a Chevron station.  I get gas there, and they have the only self-serve diet coke fountain drink anywhere close that tastes good.  For some reason the other one or two around, and there aren’t many that have diet coke in a fountain drink, but those all taste off.  Something is not calibrated and nobody is bothering to fix it because apparently, I’m the only one who can tell the difference. Between Sequim and Port Angeles is a little restaurant that looks like a house. It does not look like much from the outside, and the inside seems like you’ve entered into a restaurant in the 70s, but if you have a hankering for some good crab cakes, this place won’t let you down. It’s called Dupuis, but I think the locals call it Dupees. The next stop down the road is the outskirts of Port Angeles. You’ll see the Deer Park Cinema. I suppose they are open. We haven’t been since before Covid hit. It’s the only movie theater anywhere near us. When you google things like closest theater near me, google always suggests Victoria, which is a one-hour ferry ride to Canada and is currently shut down due to Covid.  After passing Deer Park Cinema you go through an S-curve. It’s a dangerous place where there have been several accidents even since we moved here 3 years ago. They finally put a cement curb and median in the middle. I don’t know why it took so long. But as you go through this S-Curve you have one of my favorite views of the mountains in Port Angeles. It’s always picturesque unless there happens to be fog, which we do get sometimes. — This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app — Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/rocky-mountain-sunshine/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/rocky-mountain-sunshine/support
