Poulsbo, village by the sea
We arrived in Poulsbo just before noon. Since we had an earlier than usual start of the day, we were hungry and ready for lunch.
Most of us ate at the Loft restaurant, which is the top floor of a building overlooking the Marina. The slightly overcast sky provided just the right amount of shade. We all enjoyed our meal. After lunch, there was plenty of time to explore the three or so blocks of Front Street, which is the main street in the historic village. Lots of things to see: art galleries, book stores, and (of course) Sluys bakery, a Poulsbo institution.
On the edge of front street, Mora Creamery had a storefront, a wonderful Bainbridge Island ice cream company. The group met at the pre-determined location to catch our return trip bus.The ferry ride going home was so relaxing. Sitting on the sun deck we had wonderful views of the Seattle skyline. Once in Seattle, we walked through Pioneer Square to get to the Sounder Train… a great way to get home without even seeing the dreaded Highway I-5 traffic!
Thanks for another great trip! Thanks, Sharlene, for taking and sharing these pictures!
