We experience many joys living on Whidbey Island. One is waking up on a beautiful Saturday morning and deciding what outdoor thing to do. So, we decided on a Coupeville-Port Townsend Ferry Lunch Run. The Coupeville Ferry Terminal is about 5 minutes from our house. Moreover, we just park our car near the terminal and walk on. Then, 35 minutes later we are walking in downtown Townsend, planning our day.
Coupeville-Port Townsend Ferry Lunch Run Scenery
The ferry ride is the most beautiful aspect. Look toward Port Townsend and one sees the Olympic Mountains. Look back toward Coupeville and you get glimpses of the Cascades. Mount Baker loomed large on this sunny day.
Port Townsend’s Victorian Architecture
Victorian architecture is Port Townsend’s signature. Houses and office buildings reflect Victorian influences. Consequently, part of downtown wandering included gazing at the buildings.
Port Townsend is home to one of the best tea shops in the Seattle area, Pippa’s Real Tea.
We had lunch at the Owl Sprit Cafe, fulfilling our the “lunch” part of our Coupeville-Port Townsend Ferry Lunch Run. Tt is a pleasant place to grab a quick bite. I don’t know why it is “Sprit” instead of “Spirit.” (I wanted to note that so no one thought I had a typo!)
