If you visit Port Angeles between mid July and mid October, you may never see a drop of rain. In fact, you should come prepared for almost nonstop sunshine. However, if you visit for more than a few days at any other time of year, you are likely to encounter at least one day with enough rain to dissuade you from taking that hike in Olympic National Park. Don't despair. Not only will there probably be a sun break sometime during the day, there are plenty of things to do in Port Angeles and environs in the rain. If you are the sort of person who really must get that workout no matter the weather, visit the local YMCA on 302 South Francis Street in downtown Port Angeles, pick up a day pass, and hit the machines. The Y is quite well equipped with all sorts of strength training equipment and a variety of elliptical trainers, treadmills, rowing machines, and stationary bikes. There is a pleasant sauna in which to recover after the workout. Port Angeles is a great town for therapeutic massage, partly because of its demographics and partly because local Peninsula College offers a massage training program. Just pick up the phone book or ask your lodging host for a recommendation. Most therapists do not make hotel calls, but the town is so compact that it is no hardship to drive to a therapist's office. If you want to enjoy the outdoors despite the rain you might set up a visit to several of the local waterfalls, which are always particularly impressive in a downpour. Madison Falls, near the Elwha River, is handicapped accessible. Marymere Falls, at the Storm King Ranger Station on Lake Crescent, is approached through a short, easy hike in a stand of old growth forest that provides a natural umbrella. Further afield is magnificent Sol Duc Falls, which has the added advantage of being near Sol Duc Hot Springs. Although the latter shuts down in the winter, it's pleasant and uncrowded during the damper days of the shoulder season and well worth a visit in the rain. You can always drown your sorrows - if you have a designated driver - with a tour of the local wineries. Places to visit include the warmly funky Harbinger Winery, housed in a warehouse along with a kayaking outfit; Camaraderie Cellars, which has a gorgeous tasting room and rich, intense, reds; Black Diamond, which serves a variety of fruit wines, and Lost Mountain, which is a bit farther from Port Angeles than the others, but which has a spectacular setting on the eponymous mountain. Olympic Cellars, right on Highway 101, should not be missed, either. They make a variety of reds and whites, and they have begun growing several unusual cold weather varietals that flourish on the Olympic Peninsula.
