Day Trip to Port Townsend, Washington - Day 140

Today we are going to take the ferry that runs from Coupeville to Port Townsend. It's the same ferry that was passing by during our visit to Fort Casey the other day. The boats on this run are brand new having been put into service in the past year.

I've always been intrigued by the campground next to the dock. Looks like a fun place to stay and is in walking distance of Fort Casey. Just sayin...

The gulls on the pilings are always entertaining.
We sailed right by Fort Casey and the Admiralty Head Lighthouse. Here's the view from the water.

Scenes coming into Port Townsend.

There's lots to do in and around this lovely victorian town but since we were walk-ons we had to stay within a few blocks of the ferry dock. So we stopped in at a favorite antique shop to try on some vintage hats.

Since it was a beautiful afternoon, we had lunch on the deck of a local restaurant.
Then it was back on the ferry for the trip to Whidbey. We had a hankering for ice cream and since Coupeville is just a few minutes away we headed for town. Little did we know there was a Water Festival going on so we were blessed with an extra treat.

Thanks for joining us on our afternoon outing.
