After flying through Oregon, we headed to the Pacific coastline of Washington. The camphosting family that we met back in Arizona, the “Q” family, is camphosting at the Olympic National Park’s Kalaloch campground for the summer. We’ve kept in contact since meeting them in April—especially the kids.
Before accepting our camphosting position in Port Angeles, I wasn’t sure if we’d want to head so far north into Washington to visit the Q family. When we looked at the map and realized how close they are to Port Angles, we knew we needed to schedule a stop before reporting for duty.
On Friday night we over-nighted in Elma, WA—about 2 1/2 hours from Kalaloch. Saturday morning Miranda was up on her own by 6:30, wondering if we could leave by 7:00. Um, no. But, we did leave shortly after 8:00 and drove into Kalaloch around 11:00. It didn’t take long for the kids to reconnect and head down to the beach to play football.
Mike and I really enjoyed our time reconnecting with Don and Mollie, and the kids really enjoyed hanging with the “Q” kids. We’re hoping that we can meet-up again a time or two on our days off while we’re here on the Olympic Peninsula.
