Fast forward, and I found Marymere Falls area to have wider paths, forests just as neat and spiritual, and I was able to wander a bit off path to sit and meditate for awhile. Plus, the photos were stunning, because I arrived around 8 or 9am and the golden soft light was hitting the forest in magical ways. After that, I ventured along the nearby Sol Duc Nature Trail, enjoying long moments of natural silence among the rushing current of the rivers and streams, and waterfalls. After several hours of my mind calming until the inner monologue disappeared, I made my way back to my car, feeling completely at peace.
I drove back with the windows down, enjoying the perfect weather of early summer in Washington with a smile on my face. I found my way back to Port Angeles, where I was staying for a few nights, and then stopped at the new Hook & Line Pub. This new Port Angeles restaurant is located along the ocean, bridging the shopping streets of the town with the port. It’s boasts a modern pub restaurant style design with an open kitchen, and a menu featuring regional seafood, burgers, creative pub sandwiches, and much more. Hook & Line Pub can be found at 201 E Front St, Port Angeles, WA 98362.
