Second Day in Olympia

After a quiet restful sleep in Shelton, Washington we headed back to Olympia and had lunch at The Oyster House. I tried Oysters Rockefeller for the first time. Yummy. Then I had a basket of fried scallops. Jessica had fried clams and we shared. The one thing I dislike about Arizona. There just don't seem to be any reasonable seafood places. I love this place because it is right on the water and so nice.
We've been trying to work on the genealogy. We learned Jessica's third or fourth Aunt on Doug's side. We found the cemetery in Morton and then found Alta Martin's grave.

Alta had 13 children but some passed away as children. Her husband died in 1915 an dis buried here in Naches. We visited his grave Thursday evening. Jessica was doing some EVP and spirit box work but we haven't had time to study them.

On the drive back through South Pass Flat Stanley got out to get a look at Mount Ranier.

It is covered with snow and blends with the clouds but it is so beautiful.

So quite a weekend. Now it's time to get down to everyday living with the boys. Walks, working on art journals, shopping and relaxing in the yard.

Things I saw today:

Tieton River
We stopped at some outlet stores but didn't get anything
Cherry orchards

Talk to you soon.
