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!
North Beach is one of Port Townsend’s beautiful, if somewhat hidden, treasures. Known primarily only to locals it is perfect for beachcombing, having a picnic or diving (for the more adventurous). There is also facebook page displaying and selling beach glass that has washed up. If you are interested, ask the Innkeepers John and Renee for directions… we want to keep this one a secret.
For a fantastic day trip, try Dungeness Spit, located in the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge along the northern coast of the Olympic Peninsula. It is an hour drive but totally worth the trip. The spit is a preserve for native birds, no dogs allowed, so bring the camera. You can make the full 10 mile round-trip hike and check out the New Dungeness Lighthouse at the 5 mile mark. Be sure to check the tide calendar before you go. Having made this hike myself I have to recommend it to out-of-towners or even locals who don’t know it’s there. Simply beautiful!
