PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — The first lady’s visit to the Peninsula is still causing a stir among those who have seen her, and those who hope to catch a glimpse.
On Wednesday afternoon, Laura Bush and a group of friends shopped in downtown Port Angeles, stopping at two Front Street businesses, Brown’s Outdoor and Olympic Mountaineering. An employee at Olympic Mountaineering said the store quickly filled with people who were accompanying Mrs. Bush.
The group did not purchase anything.
Lazy J Tree Farm owner Steve Johnson, who has a vegetable booth at the downtown Port Angeles Farmers Market, said he saw Mrs. Bush and her friends pass through the market, but did not speak with them.
Earlier in the afternoon, a handful of people hoping to see the first lady went to William R. Fairchild International Airport after a large, white jet landed on the runway. The government craft stood out among the smaller planes that usually dot the tarmac.
