On Sunday we drove to Ballard to see the Hiram Chittenden Locks, but first we wandered through the Ballard Farmers Market mostly to listen to all the music. There were probably about 15-20 music groups or individuals playing jazz, classical, or country music. We had to walk past beautiful veggies and fruits while we were listening, but we couldn't fit anymore produce into our pint sized rv fridge. Most of the stores were open, there were jugglers, arts and crafts, and magicians. It is quite a show. Afterward we went on over to the locks and then across the water to the Fisherman's Marina for Allan to get photos of boats.
Tuesday morning we headed out for the coast, stopping at the Elma RV Park, in Elma, WA for the night. After setting up, we took the dogs and drove over to Westport where Allan got even more photos of boats, we ate delicate and delicious halibut and chips, and stopped at a long deserted beach where Elsie and Murray could really run off leash without any intimidating large dogs around. They were flying around the sand, running full tilt, with Elsie jumping over Murray and taking off like the wind. Of course they ate some sea creatures before we could get to them, but we had such a good time watching them have a great time. A good end for our Washington visit.
