We drove up Thursday late afternoon after Ben got home from preschool and I got off of work. About half way up, I all of the sudden muttered "oh sh**. Turn around." I realized that I had forgotten the passports (Ben just needed a birth certificate). Luckily, our neighbor (who is awesome) took pity on my preggo brain and over-nighted them to us so that we were still able to go to Victoria.
We spent the first two nights in Port Townsend. We basically just mosied about town, drove by his great uncle's old home and admired the gorgeous Victorian homes. We also spent a bit of time in the heated indoor pool at the motel (the reason why we stayed in a motel vs a gorgeous Victorian B&B). I'll actually admit that I just stuck my feet in the hot tub while Ben and Steve played in the pool. I'm a chicken when it comes to water that is the slightest bit cold-you wouldn't know that I used to swim in the ocean daily during my junior high summers-brrrr.

|one of the houses on the property-there were many and most were much nicer than this one. Note the high leaded glass window on the house in the background. Guess they spared no expense back in the day. :)|
Victoria was gorgeous. We walked around a ton and again I loved looking at all the gorgeous old buildings.
