First of all, we messed up in two ways....Planned insufficient time and reserved our hotel in a dumb place (Port Townsend) for our upcoming trip to Olympic Peninsula. We will have only 2.5 days. Please comment on this itinerary:
Day 1 (the half day): Arrive in Port Townsend after driving from SeaTac, check in, and explore the local area (especially the Fort Worden Park area)
Day 2: A loooong day....Get up early and drive to Crescent lake, visit Marymere Falls, continue on to Ruby Beach, drive back to Port Townsend. Google reports total 5 hour 13 minutes of driving.
Day 3: Stay a tiny bit closer to Port Townsend: Drive to Hurricane Ridge in a.m., then explore the north coast at Tongue Point and Dungeness Spit in the afternoon. Dinner at Alder Wood Bistro at 7:30 p.m. before returning to Port Townsend. Google reports 4 hours 14 minutes driving for this circuit.
Is this doable? Crazy? Under the circumstances we have little choice. Next time we'll plan more time and a more central location (probably at Lake Crescent)
