We tried to make the trip, but ... The Ferry failed to show up. When we got to the staging area, reservation in hand, we were advised it was not coming due to a mechanical problem. we gave up and took a ferry towards Seattle. Bummer. We also did not have time to drive the Olympic peninsula due to the lost time and added distance. It sounded as though this was not an isolated situation. The estimate was a four hour delay, or more. The drive through Seattle on 5 was not great fun or very scenic.
