I made a new friend in Port Townsend, WA. Scott took Sarah and I on a sailboat outing. It was my first sailboat ride!
What a feeling. So close to the water, the wind really carries you quickly, smoothly (thankfully, that day, no sea sickness which I can be prone to.)
What you see below is a view towards the town. The main street is so much fun to stroll along.
Graceful old houses line the blufftop above town. That ‘s where I snapped a panoramic pic.
Closer in. I just love it when old lettering clings to a wall.
A passenger/car ferry with the Olympic Mountains in the background.
A boat meant for work – the Tebenkof. I looked it up. It’s possible to enter a boat’s name, online, and learn of its use, origination, builder, home port, etc. Really interesting!
I had a blast, there, and returned for a bit more time after crossing the Straight to Vancouver.
Next post, much missed time above treeline.
