Wishing I was in Maui, but dealing with being here


to the economy of WA state! Today was sunny, clear and no wind. We went on a drive to Port Townsend which is about 2 hours away. Our only agenda was lunch and a couple of yarn shops. One of the shops was closed so I spent at the other shop Yarn Diva and Trim and at Tickled Pink, a gift shop.

I purchased yarn and a pattern to make mittens and some roving for my April birthday swap spoilee. At Tickled Pink I bought bracelets for the girls for Easter, a Vera Bradley wallet and surprises for the girls when we go see Wicked (Carrie if you’re reading this the surprise is not a big thing so don’t feel you have to do something too!) EVERYTHING WAS 50% OFF!!

We had lunch at Sirens, a place that Mike recommended. Such a beautiful day to sit out on the deck, over the water and enjoy a beer and a nice lunch

Entrance to 3 flights of stairs!

Whew! Made it to the entrance!

AAAHHH! Lunch and a beer.

The drive was really easy, just a long way. Went across the Narrows Bridge and The Hood Canal Bridge. The Narrows has a distinct history as it fell down in very high winds a long time ago. Heres the video: [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0Fi1VcbpAI&hl=en_US&fs=1&%5D

Here’s our photo:

Approching The Narrows Bridge going East. There are two spans, West and East bound. The West bound has lane change restrictions (you can't change lanes once on the bridge)

We also went across the Hood Canal pontoon/drawbridge.

  1. I’ve been to Diva…also went to the bead shop next door. (The other shop was closed for us, too.) We needed to take the ferry back to Whidbey Island, but it was cancelled! We ended up getting a ride from someone and made it home 4 hours later – whew.
