Olympia Marina

After our drive through the Olympic National Forest, we had a brief stopover in the capital city of Washington State, Olympia. This is a view of the marina at the southernmost tip of Budd Inlet, an arm of Puget Sound. The sky wasn't very clear, which was probably the first sign of the Canadian wildfire smoke, which reached a large part of the Pacific Northwest in the next few days (stay tuned).

Olympia, located 100 km south of Seattle, was named after Mount Olympus, the highest mountain of the nearby Olympic Mountains. Olympia has almost 45,000 inhabitants.

For more information about the red Panamanian cargo ship Forest Trader in the background, take a look here.
