Catching up, with an Amtrak cameo

To recap the beginning of our trip, Ann's dad Gerry sent us off on a foggy Vashon morning at the passenger ferry terminal.  The ferry dropped us off in downtown Seattle and it was a 10 minute walk to the train station.  The night before we  had boxed up our bikes and checked them at the station, before going to visit Gerry and spend the night on Vashon Island.  Pretty slick.  BTW, this was the last cool weather we have seen since departing our home state!

The train photo above is for grandson Soren, as he has a love affair with trains.  It was a long trip but was nice to let Amtrak doing the driving.  We would recommend a sleeper car if you are interested in getting a good night's sleep.  (Did we mention we "slept" in our seats in coach??!)

The above photo is of Dennis Richardson, who was our first Warm Showers Host.  He and his wife Julie and son Trevor were great to take us in when a flat tire slowed us down.  This was after our first day of biking.  Thanks, Dennis!
