Port Townsend, WA

This afternoon, we wandered a bit through historic Port Townsend. Our flight north isn’t until 9pm so we had a bit of free time. The only stress-inducing factor for me was traffic at the Hood Canal bridge. There was also a lot of traffic through Tacoma. I guess I don't deal with those kinds of uncertainties very well. These pictures were uploaded using the BlogTouch Pro app while walking around Port Townsend so this will be a short post. There was a lot of traffic as people were rushing to the ferry terminal. I'm told that traffic is always hectic these days near rush hour as well as the weekends.

There were some interesting buildings and ghost signs around the historic part of town. It was a challenge to find a parking space. Things like that seem to set me on edge these days. It would have been better for me to set time aside to wander around town instead of before we needed to drive to the airport.

We had lunch with my brothers family including the newlyweds. It was a very pleasant visit. Now back to Fairbanks...

Love the buildings. I always like to wander around places that I go to to look at the architecture.

Don't like the traffic either. We tried to avoid it and were mostly successful. Really don't like being held up on flight day, your comments ring a chord with me. Nice pics of your trip. Thanks for posting. Lots of areas I've not seen.

Port Townsend is a good place to wander around and look at buildings. Just don’t try to buy anything as it’ll be really overpriced.

After going through one bridge closure we passed a 6.5 mile line of cars. I don’t know how far the line extended as we turned off the highway.

It really is a cool town though, like many places, gets really crowded.

Port Townsend is adorable. It's a cute spot for an outdoor lunch and/or drinks overlooking the water. I went there in April a couple of years back, which was off-season, so it was hardly crowded at all. I can imagine it gets a bit nights in prime season. We did a loop trip from my daughter's house in Auburn, SE of Seattle. The approach from the north via ferry was better than the return via Tacoma. We hit rush hour, but luckily were able to get off the highway just past Tacoma and onto secondary roads to get back to her house.

It is a nice town. I hadn't been there since the early '90s. It was a lot less crowded back then...
