We welcome not only an extended weekend but the unofficial start to summer. The weather has been wonderful lately and will hopefully hold out through Monday. Regardless of what Mother Nature decides to throw our way us Washingtonians won’t let a little rain spoil our good time. There is the Shrimp Fest going on in Brinnon, WA the 24th & 25th. If you are looking for live music stop by the Quimper Grange to hear Portland’s New Iberians play Zydeco, Blues, Soul, & New Orleans Rock’n’Roll; you can even join in a dance lesson. Getting hungry? The 1st Annual Port Townsend Artisan Food Festival sounds delicious and interesting!
What a better excuse to come to Port Townsend than to do a little holiday shopping? With so many wonderful and unique shops in our downtown area you are sure to find that perfect gift for anyone. Forget the mall….browse through local stores with a beautiful waterfront view. Some fantastic places to stop in are Wandering Angus, The Green Eyeshade, Henery Garden Center, Maestrale, Forest Gems Gallery and Tickled Pink. After a day of shopping be sure to check out The Undertown for a hot cup of coffee or a glass of wine.
This was an early morning shot of the Deception Pass Bridge that connects Whidbey Island with the main land. It was foggy, so the water isn’t visible, but this area is one of the most beautiful sights you will ever see. Whidbey is just 20 minutes from Port Townsend by ferry, and a great day trip for our guests.
