|Our Point Hudson campsite is on the point. It's a nice spot but available to us for just one night.
It was uncommonly hot the day we arrived but the heat lasted just one day -- cooling quickly by 20-30 degrees at sunset and the heat didn’t return the next day.

The ferry we’ll take is from nearby Port Angeles. It will take us directly into Victoria where we'll stay a few days. Then we'll move up into Vancouver Island to see as much of the island as we feel compelled to see. We'll take a return ferry back to the B.C. mainland.
