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.

Pictures from Roslyn

Mostly all pictures from our trip to Roslyn, WA. We stayed at Huckleberry House, right near downtown. We were in the Cicely Suite. Breakfast was delicious — smoked salmon and vegetable egg scramble, pepper-honey bacon, huckleberry pancakes and fruit. If you are looking for a place to stay in Roslyn, this was very nice. We aren’t normally B&B kind of people, but we enjoyed it.

Okay, now the pictures.

The door to KBHR. The text is still up! Minnifield Communications Network! This is a 2nd door to a furniture store. You can’t go in this way, but they’ve kept the DJ area intact too.
