On the last weekend of the trip I got to visit Port Townshend, an island just a ferry ride away from the main state.
Phil and I also hung out with Jeff, Avery (Danielle’s brother), Jeremy (the other WWOOFer), and the boys at a park to watch some paragliders.
The highlight of my last day at Highwater was harvesting spinach plants. Jeff gave me a stick with which I whacked the bottom of the plants so we could pick them up. We sorted them into piles of females and males. I had no idea plants had genders until that day.
If you ever have the time to volunteer on an organic farm through the WWOOF program and haven’t before, I highly recommend it. There is so much you’ll learn, a bunch of great people you’ll meet, and a ton of memorable experiences you’ll gain 🙂
