We spent the night before at an Indian Casino near Sequim which is pronounced Squim. The set up was very much like an aire in Europe and included electricity and water. The best part was that it was free.
Cory and Ovi had a place they were staying at in Port Townsend and joined late in the morning. While we were waiting Ton and I decided to to take a walk up to the casino to take a look. As casinos go it was a nice one with two gaming floors separated by a lobby, one was smoking and one was non-smoking. We would have appreciated it if we were gamblers, though we did notice that the smoking casino was much busier than the non-smoking one.
They had a nice native American store in the lobby and we payed for our free night by picking up a couple of things from the store. Ton likes native American art and she thought the prices here were very fair.
When Cory and Ovi arrived we spent some time chatting and doing some maintenance on the trucks. One of our neighbors was from Sequim and spent some time giving Ovi some ideas for their stay on the Olympic peninsula.
Ovi and Cory had noticed a Native Art store just before the casino so we decided to walk down there. The store was run by the same tribe that owned the casino and was located in the tribal village of the Jamestown S’kallam tribe. The store was nice and Ton was very tempted by several of the pieces of art. The village had a lot of very nice Totems that we all admired. Ton and I were very impressed with the casino and the village, the local guy we met earlier had also said how positive the relationship was between the tribe and the local community.
We finished the day up with a nice meal in Cory and Ovi’s Tiger.
