Is there anywhere around the Friday Harbor Ferry landing to store luggage while we explore before catching a later ferry to another island?

Am planning a day trip from Olympia to Ocean Shores on Sunday the 19th. I did locate an Interpretive Center and Museum at Ocean Shores. Am wondering if there are any interesting points of interest that are 'inexpensive or free' to see along the way. Thanks, Rose
Hi there! My husband and I will be spending about a week in Olympic National Park at the end of July/beginning of August. We are experienced car campers but would like to try to do at least a night or two in the backcountry this trip, so we're reading up and stocking up on backpacking essentials.
Our tentative plan is to drive first to the coast and spend a few nights beach camping (Mora/Rialto area, most likely), then drive inland for the remainder of our trip. We are thinking about parking at Graves Creek and spending a night there, then hiking in and spending at least a night or two backcountry two and from Enchanted Valley, or perhaps a bit beyond. To anyone who knows, does that sound like a good plan? Anything we might not know that we should? (We know about the ban on backcountry fires, and about bear canisters, etc.)
From there, we have two or three days before or after to play with. Any other campground recommendations we should definitely visit, if we'd like to see some of the park's great stuff but also avoid driving too much or trying to squeeze too much in? Should we keep the Quinalt area / Graves Creek as our home base, or should we venture around to other spots?
Also, I know that the frontcountry campsites are first-come first-serve. Any advice on how early you really have to get there, or what to do if a site is full?
Thanks for your help!!
Staying 6 nights, was thinking "2" in each of Lake Crescent Lodge, Quinault Lodge and 2 in SOl duc resort.
Coming from Seattle airport 9-23 Is this too much time at the resorts? Plan on doing alot of hiking.
Visiting Seattle end of the month. Want to bring my daughter for some really great crab legs. Would like a place locals would go if they were bringing family. I see a ton of places on Yelp, would really like something of a shack where we could just buy crab legs without actually having to sit down at a restaurant for a full meal. Looking forward to the feedback and recommendations!
We are from Portland, OR and are driving to Raymond, WA to visit family. We want to drive to the Hoh Rainforest for one day which would be about a 3 hour drive from Raymond. Are you able to see the Olympic Mountains from the Hoh Rainforest visitor center? If not, can you recommend an area that is not far away so we could see the Olympic Mountains? Hurricane ridge is too far for us because that would make it a far drive back to Portland. Thank You!
What parking garage should I use for parking during a 7-day cruise?

I am making a brief (24 hour) visit to Seattle and would like to enjoy a traditional diner experience, both for dinner on a Saturday evening and breakfast on Sunday.

I really enjoy eating at such establishments and would appreciate any tips or suggestions.
