An amble through Port Gamble


The Feet and Forks hit the road again yesterday, this time to explore the quaint, historic town of Port Gamble, WA. The highlight (for me and the other quilter) was the very colorful quilt shop, the Quilted Strait.


It's housed in a 105-year-old stable building, but it has plenty of contemporary offerings. Feast your eyes:





I'm definitely going back. Check out the website at www.quiltedstrait.com


This embroidered pillow at the shop leads right into the next photo of my friends and flowers. The town has beautiful blooms set against changing fall foliage and white picket fences.





Being located in wet western Washington, Port Gamble also has plenty of mushrooms. We took our traditional "feet" photo by this one:


This sign sums up the history of the town. (Click on it for a larger view.)




 


Great yarn store.
View from town.
You know I always take food photos, so here is the "forks" photo from this trip. I had a Portobello mushroom sandwich, sweet potato fries and a decadent flourless chocolate cake at the General Store and Cafe.
 

 Have a colorful day
