Day 6

Today we went to Fort Worden State Park.

Not a sight this cajun girl gets to see often...ha!

Look familiar?

An Officer and a Gentleman was filmed here.

After a taste of history we headed into Port Townsend for some shopping.

Or should I say eating...ha!

We started out with a cup of ice cream
found this cute cup cake shop.


We paid our respect during a service.

Then headed back for the day.

I only wish I could grow flowers like this...

With a pond like this I could get all of my reading!

Sorry for all of the picture overload.
I have one Daddy that is sure missing his girls back at home.
I miss you Marc!

Hope this brings a smile to your face.
ps...we may just come home a few pounds heavier...
The desserts are just too good to pass up!


  1. Susie-I am enjoying your little travel journal. I've been to Yellowstone Park, then on south to California, but never to the far northwest. It looks beautiful! I would love to go there sometime...but I do think I will fly! : )

  2. Your photos are killing me! I am so homesick for Washington - especially when it gets hot and sticky here on the East Coast. Are you not just amazed at the size of the dahlias out there...and the calla lilies...and the trees!?!

    I am really enjoying your journey!

  3. Hey Susie!
    I think I put on about ten pounds between the ice cream pic and the cupcake pic. HA!
    Loving all the pics and enjoying your journey.
    What's the weather like there now? Is it cooler than it is here in LA?

  4. Looks like fun! What a beautiful place. Is it cool there? The year that I went it was cool in June and July. Are y'all gonna go over to Victoria? That place it just beautiful!

  5. it looks like such a fun trip, thanks for sharing your experiences!

  6. How beautiful! I wish I could visit that part of the country! You need to drag some of that great driftwood home for some projects! : )

  7. Keep the pics. coming. These are sights you don't see in Ms. either. Absolutely beautiful.

  8. oh my gosh....just started browsing your blog after I saw pics of your bedroom makeover. Came across your photos of Fort Worden, a place we traveled to in July from across the country and have some of the very same photos you do.....the gorgeous water, lighthouse, downtown cute shops, as well as Port Angeles, and on to Hurricane Ridge, even more awesome! By the way, I love your latest new sign above your bed. Are you selling it as well?


Thanks for stopping by. It's always so nice to hear from you.
