We decided to take a boat from Seattle. Instead of the busy freeways, we could watch the scenery and change gear from urban to a more relaxed style.
We could now watch the Space Needle, Elliott's on the Bay and many other places we'd visited slip away as we headed across Puget Sound further to the North West.
Our plan was to make for the Olympic National Park. So as Mount Ranier bid us a distant farewell, we could see the early ranges of the largely uninhabited million acre park appearing before us.
