Port Townsend

We left Long Beach on Wednesday morning and drove the 101, partly along the Hood Canal, to Port Townsend, where we checked into the Point Hudson RV & Marine Park, pictured below. You can see the trailers in the top right of the picture. The park is right at the end of the downtown area of Port Townsend.

We browsed around the town and stopped in at Siren’s Pub for a cocktail on the deck. We also picked up a really nice bottle of Zinfandel that the wine shop owner had recommended. The price was right too.

Pictured is a shot of one of the buildings downtown.

Pictured is Tim with an American pour of Johnny Walker On The Rocks at Siren's Pub.

Back at the park we sat at the beach, right beside our RV spot, and watched the sun set.

Pictured below are a couple of shots from our campsite. I think that’s a different view of Mount Baker in the background.

Thursday morning we went for breakfast at one of the restaurants here at the park and then ventured a walk of the whole town.

Pictured is a shot of a house at Uptown Port Townsend, where the ladies used to stroll in order to avoid the rowdy waterfront area. Port Townsend is very picturesque, with lots of fine, well-preserved architecture.

In the afternoon the laundry went round as we took a, short, uneventful drive to Fort Worden State Park. Later we walked back downtown and picked up one of the best pizzas we've ever had, from Waterfront Pizza.

Today, Friday, we're catching the Chetzemoka Ferry from here to Whidbey Island and then driving onto Tweetie and Art’s place in Langley.

I’ve been asked not to stop blogging, at least right away, when we get home because people want to know how we adjust. If you’d like to stop receiving the blog, please let me know by replying to this email.
