Port Angeles, Washington was the stop before Victoria Canada, we needed to ferry over from Washington to Canada. We had a day lay over and spent our time touring this little harbor town.
We took a walking tour, that was very informative. This Family Shoe Store is the original store and building to Port Angeles since 1894.
Some fun seats in the shoe store, I remember chairs just like these growing up.
The original seats that were just for the kids. Who wouldn't want to buy shoes in a fun store like this.
A moving and musical mural in the kiddies shoe section.
A city mural that depicts time in 1904.
This city loves their murals.
Port Angeles has a underground. Originally the town was on this level that you are seeing, but had to be raised since the city would flood. Originally the town was at this level 20 ft below street grade. The port needed to be dredged so that larger vessel could dock.
This task took only 6 months, can hardly believe this since now a days it takes 6 months just to get a building permit. The town streets have been built above these old buildings that are now underground.
Here you can see the wooden ceiling that is really the supports to the street above.

Here we are getting ready to drive onto the ferry, our first time on a Ferry Boat, it was so exciting!.
