In an effort to forget how miserably cold it was today, we took a little drive north of Tumwater to Boston Harbor. Here at our RV, it only got to a high of 29 degrees F today, but at least the wind was gone. The sun was shining brightly so we took advantage of the beautiful day.
To get to Boston Harbor, we need to drive through neighboring Olympia and head out of town north on Plum St., which soon turns into East Bay Drive, which then turns into Boston Harbor Road NE. The streets here in this area do a lot of name changing, and it must drive visitors to our community nuts.
Traveling this way, we pass into rural areas with homes dotting the landscape along the road. There are some commercial business buildings, but they are few. Since we are deep into fall, all the leaves are gone from the deciduous trees and only the fir trees remain green. The area is still beautiful.
Soon we entered the Boston Harbor waterfront community. We have only been driving 15 minutes to get here from our RV home.
Bruce parked the car in the marina parking lot and I got out to take a few photographs of the area. He stayed inside the car with Annie where it was a lot warmer. I took a couple of photos of the boats....big and small....docked at the marina.
This home had a nice gazebo overlooking Budd Inlet and it's amazing deep blue water.
