We are situated right at water's edge with the marina alongside, and downtown shops, restaurants, and ferry terminal a short walk away.
|Taken from shore-side|
|And looking toward the water|
Located at the convergence of the Port Townsend Bay, Puget Sound, and the Strait of Juan De Fuca....
Early morning walk at low tide with Whidbey Island blanketed in fog...
|Low tide and driftwood teepees|
|White building on the tip is the lighthouse at Fort Warden|
|If you look really close Mount Baker appears above the fog|
The marina is very active at this time of year with a constant steam of boat traffic...
|Our site across marina towards downtown|
|At the marina looking Uptown|
|Always a colorful display|
Downtown Port Townsend with its elegant old Victorian architecture, whimsical shops and great dining experiences. The Rose Theatre is a jewel of a cinema with world class lineups:
|Oh yes, Swiss Orange Chocolate Chip!|
Walking along Water Street, past the ferry terminal, and on to Uptown, for a total of about 4.5 miles round-trip, makes for good exercise with lots of stops.
|The beautiful old Jefferson County Courthouse|
|Victorian converted to B & B|
|Uptown, a whole different scene..|
|Looking down at the cars lining up to board the ferry for Whidbey Island|
We just arrived Monday afternoon and are settling in. This time will pass way too fast with lots more to see and do before departing on the 19th.
