We lived in the Pacific Northwest for three years – I was stationed there during my navy career. The region had a profound effect on us: One of my kids graduated from high school and went to college in Bellingham Wa. Another kid has gravitated back to the area repeatedly, as he loves the climate, scenery, and culture. He also loves his fiancée’, which is why we woke up in Port Townsend this morning. They were recently married, and we are here to attend.
Ruth and I love it here too. “Life” has arranged for us to live in coastal Maryland, and we love that too. But PNW is special. I love the combination of mountains and water views, cool temperatures, abundant sea life, and spectacular views everywhere. We are enjoying our vacation-return to the Northwest. Enjoy a few photos of boats and water below and for the next couple of days as I capture a few images.
