Port Townsend

In October when we went to Wenatchee we also went to Port Townsend where my mother-in law lives, we only had time to stay one day but it was a lot of fun. Ranger and I roamed around town and took some photos. If you want to find out more about Port Townsend you can go to this web address. http://www.ptguide.com/history/ just copy and paste it in your browser, there is a lot of history there. Fort Worden State Park which is in Port Townsend is where they filmed a lot of the movie An Officer and A Gentlemen. Fort Warden is also a very interesting place.

I thought this was a funny sign, I guess it is there in case you can't stay on the sidewalk?




I thought this little church was interesting with its red door . There were also some great shadows and if you look close there is a lot of interesting detail in the building.

I have heard that it was a nice place to visit and thought about going there this past Oct but decided to go to Calif in stead. I love these types of churches

I like this series a lot. I especially like how you've given us distant shot for the setting a close ups for the detail. Nice work.

The red door on the white church is so welcoming, and warm. You'd find comfort inside, that's for sure!
I think the road sign must be aimed at people rolling home from the bar after a couple of little drinky-poos, and can't walk in a straight line!

Red door on the church, interesting. I wonder why. It looks so good and appealing. Love the sign too.

BTW, happy holidays to you and yours.

This series of photos of the Episcopal Church are beautiful. This is the location where we have choir practice. One of the oldest churches in town.
