Wolves, birds, and a good cup of coffee

Today was one of those days that remind me why I love holidays!

We started with a great cup of coffee from a coffee shack (coffee shacks in Washington State are like Tim Hortons in Ontario – on every second corner – or so Patrick tells me). This one was called Olympia Coffee Roasting Company. We’ll be going back there tomorrow!


Next we headed for the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge, where we strolled along a boardwalk listening to the birds, spotting a few, and just generally having a lovely mellow time. What an awesome place, and at $3 for the two of us, we’ll definitely be coming back here next time we’re in Olympia.

Then we headed down the highway to the Wolf Haven, where we learned about red and gray wolves.


We finished the day off with a stroll through the park in downtown Olympia.
