Early takeoff by 8:30 AM – glad – it was 40 degrees and cold and I could get in the coach and warm up while driving.
Ride east was scenic and curvy but enjoyable. As soon as we hit I5 traffic became an issue but that’s life in the big city.
Arrived at Illahee State Park in Bremerton and found a campsite but no hook ups or SAT – boon docking you would say. Nice park with lots of trees and narrow road. Sites are big so you don’t see your neighbor.
We are here so Brenda can research her grandfather who was in the Navy stationed here and was also a POW. She is visiting the cemetery, the VFW, naval base and other places to gather information.
She came back and got me and we visited the Navy Museum,
the Naval Undersea Museum
and the VFW to gather information – not a whole lot, but a few leads.
Did find the map of subs during WWII and Brenda’s grandfather was a POW when the Grenadier was sunk.
To you scuba divers out there – did you know?
Dinner at Der Blokken Brewery – special tonight 3 tacos for 5 bucks – great deal but too much each to eat – they were great so we stuffed them down.
Friday Brenda took off for the library to do family research – I ended up packing the coach and moving by myself. We met at the Walmart and connected the car and continued on to Port Angeles, WA.
