Colors of Port Townsend, WA

A few weeks ago we spent a colorful weekend in Port Townsend, WA. Now that it's gray and rainy, I thought I'd relive the sunshine through some photos.

Alpenglow on Mt. Baker as seen from our B&B.
We stayed at the Commander's Beach House, a lovely B&B with delightful owners and great views of the water. It's right on the beach with gorgeous flower beds and welcoming rooms. Breakfasts were especially good.

The first morning we headed to the farmer's market in the upper part of town, within walking distance of the B&B. It was brimming with fall veggies, baked goods, and grilled goodies. I had a hand apple pie that was so tasty I'm drooling just thinking about it. We bought giant carrots for Bunners and Dave bought a bonsai to put by our fish pond.

Then we stumbled onto the annual Kinetic Sculpture Parade, part of a whole weekend of the Kinetic Sculpture Race festival. These contraptions have to go on land and water. I loved the women's drill team, below.

Not part of the parade, but still has character.

In the late afternoon, we hiked around the historic Pt. Wilson Lighthouse at Fort Worden State Park, where the low fall sun made the buildings glow.

Hope you enjoyed the trip!
Have a colorful day
