The fog obscured most of the scenery during our ride from Bellingham to Port Townsend, but I did manage to snap a few pictures. A portion of the ride took us through the Swinomish Indian Reservation where I stopped in at the tribal trading post. I talked with a few tribal members and told them that I'm Hopi and I'm riding to raise money for the Hopi Cancer Assistance Fund. They asked me to send a message of greeting to their "relatives of the the blue corn." They also gave me some smoked salmon that I plan to have for breakfast tomorrow with a bagel and cream cheese.
On the bike path into Anacortes I came across this stone sculpture of an otter by a Swinomish artist. I'm not sure if there is a Hopi word for otter, but in the Swinomish language it is ska-atl.

The ferry ride into Port Townsend was beautiful and by the time we arrived the fog had cleared. It was a nice reward after a cold, foggy and hilly day of riding (although I admittedly took a "bump" ahead in the van over some of the steeper terrain).
