In my first post about the day-trip Amy and I took to Port Townsend (PT), I said I’d show you more pictures of the town itself, and how it looked from land. If you missed the first post, make sure you go back. There are some nice pics there, if I do say so myself.
The ride to PT was gorgeous. And it was beautiful sitting at the little waterfront cafe while we ate a small lunch and enjoyed an adult beverage or two. The town itself — at least the downtown area on and around Water Street — was chock-full of cool, artsy shops, interesting buildings, and other stuff that caught my eye. Plus, the weather was beautiful, even if it was a tad too much on the warm side for my taste (close to the 80s!).
The Pacific Northwest is supposed to have cooler temperatures!
Anyway… here are the images from Port Townsend I feel are worthy of sharing.
There were lots of other cool buildings in town, too. Some with what Fuzzy refers to as ghost ads.
Amy and I both thoroughly enjoyed our girls’ day out, but we both wished that Shannon could have been there, too.
Moms and adult daughters should hang out more often, when you can be friends and don’t have to act like a parent. It’s sooooo much more relaxing and rewarding.
Shannon and Amy both turned into lovely young women. They are awesome daughters and all-around nice people, too. Most days. LOL.
We all had our ups and downs when they were younger — parenting is HARD work — but I don’t regret any of it. Well, I do regret some parts. In hindsight, I could have been a much better parent, but I was young and growing, too.
I am a very lucky lady. Any woman would be proud to be a parent of these two now-grown kids. Hubby and I really have been blessed.
