A new year and a big tickling urge to go somewhere. Some friends had mentioned going to the Port Townsend Elks to dance and taking their coach to spend the night. It sounded like a great new adventure especially when there was going to be a west coast swing lesson involved. Off we went. One day early so we could spend a whole day taking in the sights and shopping at historic Port Townsend.
After we got settled in and did a little foray to Eden Saw, a must stop for any woodworker, Henery’s Hardware, a modern hardware with that old-fashioned feel that has almost everything, and a thrift store or two we went for the fish and chips dinner (very good) at the Elks Lodge. We enjoyed the next day of shopping and walking the town and had dinner in Bertha before going dancing. A pretty good time.
The next morning we were off to Ft Flagler and Marrowstone Island.
The views from the back window were amazing!
We spent the first 2 nights just across the water.
Doesn’t get any better than this!
The next day we took the Ferry over and spent the day exploring / shopping the Island.
This is where we ate lunch in the middle of our sight-seeing. It was a great day and another great trip (well maybe a smidgen too short).
We plan to be out and about for the month of May and have big plans for next winter, but in the mean time it is work, work, work on the new homestead.
