Days 148- 150: Back to Sandpoint
Getting to Sandpoint from Port Angeles all in one day was challenging, what with having to take a ferry to Seattle then pass through the city's traffic jams. I was so happy to arrive, and even happier to see a welcome glass of wine. I may have overdone it a bit as a result. When I did emerge the next day, our friends spent more time showing how Sandpoint earned an award as the most liveable small town in the US. Last time we saw the lake, this time we got to see the ski resort. They really have everything here! We took the ski lift up to the top of the mountain with the kids and hiked down again. There is an incredible view over the lake there, but it was a bit hazy today. The next day, I was meant to be heading out across country, so Carol and the kids came with us some of the way. We went swimming under a highway, ate more great pizza, and went to look at a hydro-electric dam. I really enjoy this kind of industrial stuff, so I was happy, until it was time to say goodbye to our new friends. Hopefully, we will meet again soon.
