Our goal this Summer was to babysit our granddaughter for the month of August before she started kindergarten.  That meant a visit to the great state of Washington.  We crossed the mouth of the Columbia River to enter the state near the town of Ilwaco.  Ilwaco is a thriving fishing town and we arrived during the Summer Coho salmon run just offshore.  We booked a trip on the Coho Sally and caught our limit of 2 fish each.

The mouth of the Columbia River has been called the graveyard of the Pacific.  There were once 3 shipwrecks in one week.  It’s been very tranquil on our visits.

Vashon Island is one of the large islands in Puget Sound accessible by ferry.  We spent a pleasant day there exploring the farmer’s market, lighthouse and rural scenery.  Beautiful.
