Day 7 - Portland trip

From Squim we drove to Port Townsend this morning for several hours of shopping and eating. What an interesting little town! Because of the large number of preserved buildings from the late 1800's, it was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1977.

This retro ice cream parlour was housed in one of the old buildings.

Fun with sisties!

The Keystone Ferry took us from Port Townsend to Coupeville around 3:00pm. The drive up to Deception Pass through Oak Harbour was beautiful. 

The bridge was constructed in amazing feat at that time.
It connects Whidbey Island with Fidalgo Island.

 We walked out on the bridge span for photos before a short drive to La Connor. By the time we arrived most of the shops were closing so we did a walking tour and hopped back in the car before driving to Mount Vernon for our final night.

By the time we checked into a Best Western it was almost 7:00pm. Ordered a pizza, poured some wine and collapsed!
