OTR: Sequim, WA (On the Road)

Time for a new blog series: OTR or On The Road. We'll be posting about the different towns, farms and people along the way. Our first stop was actually part of our test run: testing out all the systems in our RV to make sure we know what works, what needs tweaking and what needs serious help.

Sequim, WA. Sequim is a small town of about 6,600 people located between Olympia and Port Angeles on the Olympic Peninsula.  It is the gateway to the Olympic National Forrest and self proclaimed Lavender capital of North America. There is nothing made with lavender that you can't find in this town!

All of that and it is also home to some of our dear friends, Joyce, David and DJ. Farmer Scott and Joyce have been friends since junior high school back in Ohio and although we don't see them often, we call them dear friends. Joyce works currently for the government keeping our borders secure and David has his own business, NW Rifleworks, as a master gunsmith. We were privileged to see some of his custom work - WOW! Anyone needing repair work or custom gun works, you can contact David at 360-683-7273.

We had a great visit in Sequim and enjoyed seeing the Olympic Game Farm with all their "wild" animals on a prior visit. They have animals that wonder around and you drive through, in your vehicle, and can feed them. I remember we had a motor home back then and the kids went through ALL of our bread feeding the different animals. They LOVED it! 
OK, it may seem a bit weird, but we also enjoyed this very cool gas station we stopped at on reservation land owned by the S'klallum Indians. What made it so fascinating was not only the beautiful landscaping, interesting architecture and great deli, but the mammoth totem poles as well. Here, Dakota and Evan take a few minutes to check out this totem pole named, The Salmon Bringer, designed in 2007.

Besides a few cranky attitudes (yes, mine too) and hard time sleeping in an unfamiliar bed (for now), we ended up with a great first outing and a good outlook for the next adventure.
