(warning. prepare yourself for a barrage of blog posts. i’ve got a lot of catching up to do.)
when i last posted, we had just arrived in ocean city, washington. we only really had one main adventure while we were there, which was traveling into the closest corner of olympic national park and doing a bit of kayaking on lake quinault. other than that, we laid pretty low.
but, also present at our beach front location, was a dead, rotting, washed up whale carcass. it was pretty sad, but mostly gross. and we were sure to stay up wind from it. a wee bit of internet research told us that i likely had gotten tangled in some crab pot lines and died and had washed up a week or so before we arrived.
while we were at this boring campground in the middle of nowhere, i managed to bind our friend jenn’s quilt. she did the cutting and piecing all by hand. then handed it off to me for quilting and binding.
finally, aside from school and general boringness, i did make a trip to aberdeen to do a bit of thrifting. while i was there, i realized i was only blocks away from the kurt cobain memorial park. i wasn’t much of a nirvana fan growing up, but their music was such a huge part of my high school soundtrack, i figured i should probably check it out.
there was very little parking to be had and i’m sure it’s super annoying to the folks that live on that street. the house at the end, which was super cute and inviting, had this pretty hilarious sign posted out front.
anyhoooo… i’m glad i didn’t make a dedicated trip to the site, because it really wasn’t much, but it made for a good stop while i was in the area.
ocean city was definitely not my favorite. there wasn’t much to do. and we were itching to get to the next few spots, where lots of adventures were set to commence…
