Port Townsend


We’re having a snow day. That’s always a good time to reflect on the good times out & about.





Indian Beach, OR

Ready for business.

A few towns obviously have people who work together to set priorities and make a positive impression for visitors.

Winthrop, WA

Photo above: Out for an early weekday coffee in Winthrop. We walked from our room and watched the town wake up.

Lynden, WA

Seaside, OR

Family friendly. Pedestrian friendly.

We used to visit Ocean Shores, WA. Ocean Shores is a much less pedestrian friendly town. This works against seeing the sights on foot, walking to dining, shopping, drinking, etc.

Leavenworth, WA

La Conner, WA
