Mensagem: 

  Perhaps the author had inspired himself in the city named sequim (it reads: squim)

  Only a wild guessing of mine, almost kidding here.

  But who knows?

And last, it’s interesting that the name of the town of “Sequim” is actually pronounced like “Squim” and not “See Quim,” which could be bad for persons from the UK. Who’da thunk it.

had read that since Sequim (meaning “quiet waters”, and pronounced “squim”) is in the shadow of the Olympic Mountains, it gets noticeably less rain than areas to the east or west.

As we near Sequim we decided to divert and drive through the town. It's pronounced "skwim" (or, depending on your use of English, "squim") and is a native word meaning "calm waters."
