Travels and Photos on the Olympic Peninsula

Port Townsend, WA

Over Labor Day weekend jwa and I traveled to Port Townsend, WA for a long weekend. We’ve been going there every so often since we first moved to Portland, way, way back in 2000. The first time we visited, it was for a friend’s wedding (she’s from Port Townsend) and we both just really fell in love with the town. It’s full of crumbly bricks, water views, Victorian Era what-nots and it’s just a very unique place to visit. It’s one of our favorite Pacific Northwest locales.

A few trips ago, we first went to a restaurant called The Fountain Cafe and we finally made a return visit this year. I’m really glad we did — it was the best meal of the trip. If you are ever in that neck of the woods, you should definitely check it out.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like they have a website, so no link. It’s a small restaurant, so if you go, try to get there early. And here are some pictures from our trip.
