A weekend away

Enjoying an evening on the porch

Sister Rhondi and I decided to take a weekend and go to Port Townsend. It had been a long time since we had been there for more than passing through to get the ferry. Our weekend started Friday night when I arrived at her house on the prairie with some Blue Moon and oranges.  It was so nice sitting out on her front porch, enjoying the sun and the sound of her fountain. We woke up early on Saturday morning, grabbed some coffee and headed out. Our first stop was at a nice little café in “Uptown” Port Townsend where we had a great breakfast.

Our table was next to the window and we had fun watching people coming and going to the local farmer’s market.  After we were done eating we walked over to the farmer’s market and spent time wandering through the booths and looking at all the wares.

It was a beautiful day and the bright colors, music and throngs of people gave it a festival type atmosphere.

We then went “downtown” and looked through all the great shops.

Mainly we just looked, but I did find a hat that I could not pass up!

Later in the day when most people were off eating their dinners, we took our cameras, parked the car and walked through one of the older neighborhoods. We saw some great fences.

Love the flowers coming through the fence

We decided to get a hotel for the night instead of going home and had a leisurely dinner before going back to the room and going through all the pictures that we had taken. The next morning we went downtown to get more pictures.

Look at the date!

They really cared how the buildings looked back then

It was early and the shops were all closed, so there were not many people around.  We were able to wander around and get lots of pictures without feeling conspicuous.

Old brick buildings... love them

It was amazing to be amongst all the old buildings with no sounds but the gulls and realize that it would have sounded the same way back in the 1800s.

We had a great time and went home with lots of pictures. It makes me want to plan another weekend away to some other great spot in this great state of ours. -Sandy
