Beautiful Port Townsend, WA

We're in love.  We are in Point Hudson RV Park and Marina.  Wow.  Land yachts on one side and sea yachts on the other side with two restaurants in between.  My idea of heaven.  And all this while looking out on the Puget Sound.  Port Townsend is the gateway to the sound so there is lots of activity, sail boats, motor boats and freighters being pulled by tugs.  What great fun.

The ferry from Port Townsend to Coupeville on Whidbey Island.
We will take this ferry on wednesday.

It's hard to keep this water girl out of cool clear ocean water.

Look no litter.


Some local wildlife.  Sea Otter.

Salad!!!  That's a shrimp on the far side of glass.

I had broiled salmon mom had blackened salmon.

No, we haven't had our fill of sea food yet.  We will be eating out every meal while we are here. Bummer we will only be here two nights.

Now I'm going to do some griping.
I was going to do a whole post about this but I have calmed down a bit so this will be short.

The state of Washington has the worst signage of any state that I've been in and I've been to most of them.  We drove all the way to see Mount St. Helens only to get near the visitors center to find it closed. This was on a long 50 mile road.  We went even though it was cloudy and rainy thinking that oh well the visitors center will have postcard and pictures and tons of info and such.  NOT.  Grumble grumble 
Devastation area from the May 18, 1980 eruption. 


That's all. 

 We are going to hang around cousin Kirby's area, Whidbey Island, and see about having a satellite radio installed in the Rv.  I'm going crazy, some might say crazier, without music to listen and sing along to.

We picked some black berries the other day and did some baking.  Yummmm

Dream BIG!!!


  1. Dang! Where's my comment? Oh well. Love your photos of PT--it's such a great town! If you loved PT, you'll love Whidbey even more! Try to get to Toby's Tavern in Coupeville. They have a BIG bowl of mussels for cheap--they come from the beds right outside! Dang--I'd be upset too if I drove all that way only to find the Closed sign! So sorry that happened! Happy Trails!

    1. Dawn, Wow just googled map Camano Island. You're right next door, or should I say, we are almost right next door. I love mussels and will try to get to Toby's Tavern, thanks for the tip. I topped the black berries with some of those Crescent Rolls that come in the tube thing. Thanks for your comments and good to see you again.

  2. Almost forgot--what did you top your blackberries with? It looks absolutely delicious!

  3. Yes, as the crow flies I am almost right next door. However, it's about a 2-hour drive! I'm going to try the crecent rolls as topping for fruit--yummo! Maybe even better with a little cinnamon & a dash of sugar on the roll! I'm sure enjoying 'traveling' with you & your Mum. Take good care.
