Take the short ferry ride from Seattle. Experience “island time” with lovely walks along the Waterfront Trail and nearby parks. Relish the slower pace.
Explore the unique shops, restaurants, coffee houses (check out Pegasus) and the very popular Mora Iced Creamery. My favorite restaurants include Restaurant Marche (terrific French cuisine) and Doc’s Marina Grill. Both have outdoor seating which is marvelous on a beautiful sunny day.
Bainbridge Island is perfect for a quick getaway from Seattle as a walk-on ferry passenger. Or you can drive onto the ferry, spend a day or weekend exploring Bainbridge Island and continue westward to the Viking town of Poulsbo and from there continue to the Olympic Peninsula.
On each visit, I always find a unique place to explore. My next blog post will be about an enchanting shop that a friend and I discovered for the first time.
Savor your journeys, near or far, real or imagined.
