More about Port Townsend

 I always bring good weather to Port Townsend.  Otherwise the best weather only is in 2 1/2 months of the year.  It really doesn't get tons of rain like Seattle because it is in the rain shadow of the Olympia Mountains.  But the mountains don't stop the overcast, fog and wind which is especially prevalent at my sisters house since it is right smack dab on the edge of the Puget Sound.

So we had all 10 days of wonderful weather!

City Hall
Old Town Lighthouse
My very favorite of the Victorian buildings in town.
Near where we ate lunch.
You can see by the shadows that we ate lunch late.
The Fountain
A gentleman in the 1800s put up this statue to honor the memory of his father and brother.  Through the years she has been dressed in all different kinds of dress to commemorate holidays and events.  I think the times are more sedate lately, it was 4th of July weekend and she wasn't dressed up in bunting or something.

Fort Warden is an old fort that has been decommissioned and is used for all sorts of classes and events.  The lighthouse is at the northeast tip of the fort property.  They even have an RV campsite there.
