We have been enjoying our time here in Oak Harbor’s Windjammer Park, situated right on the water. This city park is a wonderful place and is well used by the community.
Yesterday we went with friends by ferryboat to Port Townsend, WA, a pretty little town on the northeastern tip of the Olympic Peninsula. Because of the town’s emphasis on historical preservation, this well-known 19th
century seaport with its ornate Victorian architecture has been well preserved. The railroad never came to Port Townsend, so the town never became the industrial hub that was expected. So the Victorian commercial buildings and ornate homes with spectacular views of the harbor still remain.
Our friends built their home overlooking Puget Sound several years ago. Needless to say, they love it.
We’ve had a lovely time visiting, eating, and touring. Tomorrow we head back south to Oregon’s wine country, Willamette Valley.
