On our way home from the kite festival, my wife spotted a different route on the map back to I-5 and we decided to give it a try. We were expecting to cross another bridge between Washington and Oregon. We were quite surprised when we got to the end of the road on the Oregon side to see a couple of cars lined up and no bridge. The line of cars was waiting for the drive-on ferry! We’ve stumbled on the Wahkiakum ferry.
Finally found the time to check out the Kite Festival at Long Beach, Washington. We were able to book a room at Shelburne Inn, a nearby inn, at the last minute. We were just going to make it a day trip as I was unsuccessful at finding a room earlier. It was a quaint inn. The room was small and all three of us shared 1 king-size bed. We were able to get a good night sleep fortunately.
