The truth is I had never heard of the Hood Canal until last year, when guest blogger Elizabeth raved about her family vacation there. After reading her story, Chris and I immediately added it to our 2016 travel list.
We rented a fantastic house on VRBO called Once Upon a Tide. This house had everything - a private beach with endless amounts of oysters, a kayak, SUP, a lovely deck, fire pit, BBQ, cozy living room overlooking the canal, comfortable beds and even a boat house with a ping pong table. The owners even left us a bottle of the local wine to enjoy.
