We spent four lovely days at Triton. We came into town in a driving rain and the place we wanted to park was a big mud puddle. So we asked the local Salvation Army Church if we could park in their parking lot. Howard Bridger, the second in command, said sure and did we luck out! Not only did we have a great place to park , we made some great friends while we were there.
We went on a very tough hike called the Maple Ridge Coastal Trail. This trail has over 3000 steps one way. Dean, Ron and I made it to the top and we were rewarded with great views of Triton harbor. Bernita went halfway and enjoyed talking with some of the locals around the mussel farms. The straight line buoys are the mussel farms.
We were going to leave on Monday but Howard said that he would take us out for a boat ride if we stayed another day. Ron, Dean, Howard, a local fisherman (Lawrence), and I went for two hours in the Triton Harbor. It was a beautiful day. That afternoon Lawrence came back with canned moose, another man brought marinated mussels, and Howard brought us canned beets. What a lovely community.
