i took my truck and camper on its first ferry ride and was on my way to the coast this day.  it was exciting to be heading further west and starting this next part of the voyage.  the ferry ride was nice and saved at least a couple hours of driving over going all the way around seattle and tacoma to the other side of the peninsula.

the town on the other side of the bay looked nice as i drove through.  i stopped at a local park and then made my way over to the dungeness national wildlife refuge before meeting a friend who lived nearby.  it was a really beautiful at the refuge.. i explored and stayed for a little while.  i remember the water making nice sounds as it washed onto and away from the rocks or shells on shore.

that evening i met my friend for dinner and then we went to a oneness meditation.  it was a little crazy that the oneness meditation was being held in such a remote area on the very day i happened to be going there.. just the day before i was curious if there'd be one somewhere along my journey, and i looked online to find out it was going to be practically right next door to where i was going the following day (and was something my friend would be interested in too). it's funny how the divine works like that.  afterwards, my friend and i gathered some firewood for a nice fire and chat back at her friend's place where she was housesitting.

i left the campground and headed south a bit, exploring some spots along the water and stopping at some parks i found.  one park had some nice trails and an overlook of the nearby area.  after that one, i went down a winding road on a cliff by the water where i found a spot to stop for a nice view of the islands in the distance.  a little later, i drove by some houses that had a great view of one of the bays.

i think i ended up pretty close to the campground i was going to stay at the following day and spent the night on the side of the road a couple miles away.  if this is the night i'm thinking, it was part of an indian reservation (as was the campground), and i had a strange dream that woke me up in the middle of the night.  if i remember, i think i thought that someone or something had come into my camper through the tent material to attack me.. i may have felt this as i was slipping between the dream world and physical world, and that's how i was interpreting the feelings in this reality.  perhaps i was picking up on some of the energy nearby or something.  a couple times like this (and times when i would sleep in places where bears or other large animals might be) led me to think i might be better off in a hard-top camper or van so i wouldn't have to worry about the possibility of anything getting in easily.  it did feel pretty vulnerable spending the night asleep in random places where people or animals might find me.  i often would invoke the divine and surround the truck and camper in white light or blessings before drifting off to sleep, and never had any actual issues during my journey.

trusting and knowing the divine has your back certainly helps one feel totally calm when holding a 15ft pole above one's head in an open area with dark clouds above and lightning not far away. the same guidance allows one to make it back to the car less than a minute before the rain begins to come down

i was at a campground all day this day, either working on the computer or just taking it easy.  i rode my bike and explored the campground a bit in the afternoon.  it was quite loud at times hearing jets flying.. it looks like there was a naval base nearby.  the campground had nice views of the nearby islands, and there was a little island that you could walk out to if the tide wasn't too high.  i was able to walk out there the afternoon before when i'd arrived, though the tide was higher when i went out this day.  it was interesting to see some people had permanent spots at the campgrounds.  i'd briefly thought about that to have a home base between wanderings, though preferred my own land.

it was the first day of autumn.. summer was officially over and i still had a lot more to explore before it got too cold.  i went north toward the peace arch monument at the canadian border this day.  i parked nearby and rode my bike to the park and monument.  i technically walked into canada when i walked around to the other side of the monument.  there were lots of flowers and landscaping at the monument and park, and it was interesting to see that that there was no fence, gate, or anything between the united states and canada at the park.. one could just walk across the field and leave the country if one wanted to.  this was quite different than i'd later see at the mexican border.  it’s funny i went to peace arch this day as the day before was the international day of peace.  i’m not sure that i realized it when i decided to make my way towards peace arch.. it probably just was a “random” coincidence that i ended up on my way there at the time.

i biked back toward where i had parked and explored that area a little bit before heading to a nearby campground.  it was nice to be near campgrounds that were part of the package i had purchased.. in populated areas it certainly was easier than driving far to find a discreet spot to stay the night (especially as days grew shorter). after setting up my camper, i went for a bike ride to the nearby bay to see the sun set.  some days were less exciting than others, though it was interesting to get to see different places in the country.  and being on a trip with no return date and on my own schedule, it didn't really matter if i wasted a vacation day that one might typically try to squeeze a lot of activity in to before having to head home.  my home was wherever i was.

waking up on the side of the road, i went for a ride shortly after the sun rose.  there was a nice haze and fog in the early morning.  i parked next to a field for breakfast and then headed over to a nearby park.  i either took a nap or worked on the computer before going for a walk.  after exploring the park and adjacent bridge, i headed over to the campground i'd be staying at for a couple of nights.

it looks like i spent a good number of nights at the campgrounds once i got to washington.. i don't recall if i needed to work a lot and was there for the internet and a place i could sleep undisturbed, or if i wanted to just check out the various campgrounds and see what life there would be like before heading to the coast to explore.  it was probably a combination of both.. when planning my route to the west coast, i was thinking of heading towards most of the campgrounds as i made my way around.
