The MATC Pacific Northwest Tour officially started on May 9th with a group dinner at Ciao Restaurant in Coupeville, WA. Views of the cars in the parking lot:
Tuesday, May 10th, we started with an early morning tour of Fort Casey and the lighthouse in Coupeville. The USS Nimitz departed as we watched from the Fort.
After a short ferry ride, we landed in Port Townsend and visited Bergstrom’s Antique and Classic Car Emporium.
Then we continued to our hotel in Port Angeles and the mechanics had a quick session!
About half way on Wednesday’s route, we visited the Timber Museum in Forks.
Then the rain got more insistent as we reached Lake Quinault and our hotel in the middle of the National Forest. The hotel is beautiful in a very peaceful setting. We had good food for dinner, caught a brief view of Sasquatch then spent our day off on Thursday doing car repairs and visiting the Quinault laundromat in the rain.
Tomorrow we’ll enter Oregon. Not sure if the rain will continue to follow us. It IS, after all, the Pacific Northwest!
