|Summit at Hurricane Ridge|
|A rain forest hike at Cape Flattery|
How about a hike to the most northwestern point in the lower US, through a rainforest along boardwalk trails to the very edge of the Pacific...This would be Cape Flattery, and thanks to the Makah Indian Nation, you can now reach this remote corner with its stunning vistas, teetering high above terra firma.
|Ferry to Seattle|
Ready for a tourist day in the city? Bainbridge Island is a Puget Sound destination in itself, but also the take-off point for a short 35 minute ferry ride to downtown Seattle. Just grab a local map, cross the impressive Hood Canal Bridge, the longest floating bridge in the world, and you'll soon be trolling the aisles of Pike Place Market.
|Sequim lavender festival|
The town of Sequim provides us with all our shopping needs plus a beautiful drive along Discovery Bay. The Dungeness Recreation Area on the banks of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Sequim Lavender Farms add another full day to side trips from Port Townsend.
We tore ourselves away later in the afternoon for a last walk through town. The Northwest Maritime Center was having an open house complete with music and food. We ended up at the Rose Theatre seeing a fun senior adult movie, Hope Springs, with Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones.
During the next couple of weeks we hope to bring you more of this beautiful northwest summer around the San Juan Islands.
Here is the Whole Port Townsend Enchilada!
