Another Month Gone

Can you believe it?

Hope everyone is doing well.
For a couple of days I was feeling a bit under the weather.
I think I caught some type of flu.  Which is no fun when your trying
to cook a Thanksgiving meal.  My Hubby did most of the work.
What a sweetheart.  We only had one guest and that was a volunteer that works
in the gift shop. She is here as well without her family, so we asked
her to join us.  Then I was worried that I might get her sick.
But she didn't seem to mind.



Our Turkey's in there cooking away.
We have been cooking it this way for years. It comes out so moist and yummy.




We do get some fog from time to time.  I love it because you
can hear the fog horns on the boats... such a cool sound.
This shot was taken from the beach looking up into the town of 
Port Townsend.




Speaking of the Town of Port Townsend, here is a photo of their
downtown area.  Such a fun place to shop.




And here is another photo of downtown,
I just love the architecture of the old buildings down here.





And on the other side of those buildings is the Puget Sound.
I never get tired of this view.




At the end of the block is the marina.
Port Townsend is famous for their wooden Boats.


Well, I hope you enjoyed this little tour of Port Townsend.
Thanks so much for all your sweet comments my friends
.
You guys are the best.

Hugs~

I have heard so much about this town from the famous author Debbie Macomber. It looks just how I imagined...thanks for taking us there.

Ida said...

Looks like you are enjoying your stay here in Washington State. It is a lovely state. I've only briefly been through Port Townsend so haven't had the pleasure of browsing it's shops. It does look like a lovely town though.

So glad to hear that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, but sorry that you've been under the weather. It seems something is going around. I got my first flu shot this year, and I'm truly praying it does its job ;). Looks like such a beautiful place to be spending the holidays, hun.

Wendy AppleApricot said...

What a beautiful place, the architecture is awesome. Love your beautiful photos, but what enchanted most was the rustic way you cooked the Turkey (so yummy!) and when you talked about the mist and the horns... I could so hear, feel and see that! Sorry to hear you we're feeling under the weather when it was Thanksgiving... Hope you're feeling better now.

Cindy said...

Port Townsend is truly beautiful, I loved visiting it and going through the shops and grabbing a bite to eat in one of the quaint little restaurants.
What a great way to bake a turkey.
I hope you are feeling much better now.
Hugs, Cindy

Port Townsend is a charming older settlement, a great place to holiday and take time with your camera (although I know you're not purely holidaying). I can see why you are enjoying your stay.
