Port Townsend to Seattle / by Lisa

Yesterday was our longest day yet, nearly 70 miles. The first few days we did 1500-2000 feet of elevation, but yesterday we did almost 4000 feet of elevation. It was a hard day, but included a lot of amazing bay views and pine tree-lined country roads. During one particularly bad climb, a car pulled up next to us and the driver yelled, “You got this!” Thank you, random encouraging stranger! We also biked across the Hood Canal Bridge, third longest floating bridge in the world at over a mile long. The day ended with a ferry into Seattle, a few more miles biking across the city, and an Airbnb with a jacuzzi tub.
