Pacific Northwest: Port Angeles and Port Townsend (April 27-28)

A rainy weekend was a good excuse for some R&R after the Dungeness Spit hike.

A rainy day at the year-round Port Angeles Farmers Market

We picked up a few things at the local farmers market Saturday, then walked around the dock area of Port Angeles and got some information about the ferry to Victoria.

In the afternoon we went out to Sequim and chatted with folks at the Dungeness River Audubon Center and especially enjoyed their bird specimen collection. Too drizzly for birding, we hope to go back for one of their morning bird walks.

Sunday we went out to Port Townsend and looked around briefly at Fort Worden State Park

We especially enjoyed walking around the historic downtown with its shops, galleries and eateries.

After a nice lunch at Sirens Pub, we landed at the historic Rose Theatre where we saw 42 (the Jackie Robinson story). This was the first time we ever had theater staff personally introduce the movie!
