Visiting Bainbridge Island is a marvelous way to experience to “island time” ~ any time of the year. Walk about Winslow Way, browse the shops, especially Eagle Harbor Book Co. They have changed the interior and made it even more attractive and welcoming. I always find at least one book to treasure. This time, it’s “Simplicity” ~ Day Planner by Paulo Coelho.
Because of Covid, when you visit, check restaurant times of operation. My favorite place for lunch (Restaurant Marche) is now only open for dinner. Same for several other restaurants and cafes while others are closed certain days of the week. But, the marvelous local coffee shops are open and inviting.
Bainbridge Island is terrific 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 and Port Townsend and Port Angeles.
