Visiting Bainbridge Island is a terrific way to experience “island time” any time of the year. Walk along Winslow Way, browse the shops, and enjoy coffee and pastry (check out Pegasus) or lunch.
Favorite places for lunch include Restaurant Marche (marvelous French cuisine, with the best French Onion Soup) and Doc’s Marina Grill (great fish ‘n’ chips).
Let me add a new find: J’aime Les Crepes. It’s a small place, close to Restaurant Marche with fabulous crepes, savory or sweet. I had the exquisite Norwegian Crepe: wild sockeye salmon, creme fraiche, green onions, lemon juice and capers. Also, very good coffee. Keep it in mind as you walk about and explore.
Fall is a beautiful time to stroll about the back streets and enjoy the magnificence of the foliage.
Savor your journeys, near or far, real or imagined, fleeting or lengthy.
