Holiday Shopping in Port Townsend

November 14, 2012 by bluegullinn

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, MaestraleForest 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.

Whale Watching

July 30, 2012 by bluegullinn

If you come to Port Townsend on the Olympic Peninsula one of the activities you have to partake in is whale watching. Puget Sound Express has been operating for 27 years and leaves from Point Hudson. They have a few different tours to choose from. They have a 98% whale watching success rate and even have a guarantee on that 2% chance you don’t see any whales. In my opinion the boat trip through the area would be worth the money, but throw in guaranteed whale sightings and I am sold. If that hasn’t convinced you, check out Puget Sound Express on facebook and TripAdvisor as well.

Sirens Pub

Kick back with a cold one at Sirens. Opening at noon everyday, they have a fairly extensive bar and many brews on tap. With the best mixed drinks in town (try a Mai Tai or Mojito) and a deck overlooking the water it can’t be beat. While the décor may not be to everyone’s taste the food is definitely delicious, my favorites are the Texas Jalapeno Poppers and Sicilian Pizza, so good! A couple tips from a local, get there early if you are planning on eating or finding a seat. It can get crowded in the evening as they usually have live music. For faster service, order at the bar!

The 16th annual Lavender Festival is coming up next weekend, Friday, July 20th– Sunday, 22nd. The event takes place in Sequim, WA and includes a street fair, with free admission and parking, as well as self guided, also free, farm tours. This is the largest lavender event in North America and includes seven different lavender farms from around the area. I don’t know about you but I could use some relaxing aromatherapy and with free admission you can’t go wrong. In fact, you will probably see me there.

We are again hosting the Victorian Festival Teas this year. I’m a tea drinker and huge fan of the whole process of having “Afternoon Tea”! Something about “tea sandwiches & scones” always gets my attention…
Join us for a lovely time with friends and tea, here at the Blue Gull Inn, March 24~25…see you there!
