September 28-Our 40th Anniversary

Sunday, 9-28, was our 40th wedding anniversary. Needless to say, with John's injury it was a somewhat quiet day. The weather turned very nice, our Indian Summer. On our way down the hill from the campground we stopped to take a picture of Port Angeles from a turnout close to where we're staying.

We went to a late lunch at a restaurant call the Crab Pot. It was downtown, close to the ferry terminal. The windows overlooked the public pier and a small beach, along with a view of the bay. Linda had a chicken quesadilla and John had homemade crab cakes. They were both very good, and the views made the meal memorable. John was even able to watch some of the pro football on a big screen.

After our lunch we decided to explore some areas of Port Angeles we hadn't seen before. If you continue to drive on the waterfront past the downtown area, you come to a boat harbor. There's a boat builder in town that specializes in motorized yachts. They start at about $3,000,000 and up. We saw one in the harbor and decided to take a picture of it.

That's a lot of money for a hole in the ocean!

We then continued around the bay on the breakwater, out to where the coast guard station was located. We could look back across the bay to the restaurant where we had lunch, and then up to the hill where our campground is.

It was not what I had originally planned for our anniversary, but it was nice just being together. We both plan to have a bigger celebration when John is healed and we're in another area. What that celebration will be is yet to be determined.
