A Tale Of Two Peninsulas

Standard
A Tale Of Two Peninsulas

Gorgeous sunny weather in Seattle in April is rare, so it was a perfect day for an outing to the peninsulas.

We boarded the ferry in Edmonds and arrived in Kingston on the Kitsap Peninsula. A short drive later and we arrived in the delightful town of Port Gamble.

Back in the car, we headed for Poulsbo. The bakery everyone raves about is well worth the trip, although we did eat breakfast at a small cafe across the street. The sweet almond pastry was dessert!

We were soon off again and crossed the Hood Canal Bridge to the Olympic Peninsula. Port Ludlow was another quaint town with a peaceful marina.

Our final stop was Port Townsend. I think this was my favorite town that day and I took the most pics there.

All too soon it was time to head back to the ferry. We went back across the Hood Canal Bridge.

On the ferry ride back i snapped this photo of another ferry with Mount Rainier in the background.

I hope to return to the Olympic Peninsula one day and explore Port Angeles and Sequim.
