Port Townsend--a town of another era
Port Townsend is a relic of the Victorian era and it has a peaceful timeless feeling. Bells from the courthouse ring the hour and the air is soft and clear. It also has a sense of being very connected to the woods and the ocean of its coastal location. I love this place.
Here are just a few images to give a sense of what we've experienced in the last couple of days.
Upper windows of an apartment, a store front on Water Street, the window of the Palace Hotel (an infamous brothel from the turn of the last century), an owl resting on a branch just behind the main street.
There are other photos still on my camera that I'll look through and share once we get home. We're catching the ferry back to Victoria this afternoon.
