Approaching Anacortes where our friend Mat lives - not too shabby!
Gorgeous scenery around every corner.
We drop in to see Mat 'at the office'!
Some of the aircraft have been repainted in WW2 colours to celebrate an upcoming anniversary, This excites James even further!
Riding to home to Mat's from the base - nice commute he's got there!
Deeply excited by the 'hotel style' appearance of Mat and Michelle's spare room!
Mat and Michelle make it their mission to feed us to bursting point - we're not complaining!
Stunning view from a local lookout point.
Mat's daughter Sophie is an absolute delight.
Out for a walk in the local area - lots of rugged coastline and windswept beaches.
A short walk away from Mat's house.
Strolling home through Pleasantville.
It's like a movie set!
One last opportunity to feed us up before we go.
Loaded up but reluctant to leave...
Heading for the hills on the Cascades Highway.
Blues skies, clean air, snow-capped mountains and alpine lakes... Washington just gets better and better!
We regularly pull over for shots of the spectacular scenery... if it keeps this up, we'll never get anywhere!
Can you imagine a road this beautiful in England? It would be rammed!!
Clearly the first decent weekend of the summer has brought all the bikers out!
As we head further into the mountains, the temperature drops and the snow starts appearing...
Pretty soon, it's banked up higher than us!
