Does is seem like everyone is planning a tropical or exotic getaway? Wouldn’t you like to have a little getaway of your own? You can… and without blowing your whole budget. There is beauty right here in your own backyard. There are miles of beaches to walk and regain your mental balance and sense of calm (that frankly, I think we could all use right about now). If you need to warm up try something spicy or exotic at Khu Larb Thai or Hanazono Asian Noodle. If you enjoy tea, Pippa’s is a friendly place to visit. They have so many different blends you are almost certain to find one you like…make mine the Jasmine Green!
The Port Townsend Marine Science Center is celebrating 30 years! Located out on the pier at Fort Worden State Park, it is a cool place to visit. It’s not just for kids either. The goal is to encourage people to get involved in making decisions that impact local, national and international marine and shoreline environments. The center itself has its own blog page and offers exhibits showing local marine and shoreline habitats. It is a chance to see what’s below the water… without the risk of hypothermia. A Discover Pass is not required to see the Marine Science Center, make sure to get a temporary to put in your car, but they are encouraged.
