I drove to Edmonds and parked my car and bought my ticket to walk on the ferry Wednesday morning.
I sailed on the ferry from Edmonds to Kingston on the Kitsap Peninsula.
It was a beautiful warm day and perfect to be close to the water.
So is this a jelly fish? I saw a few of them in the “Sound”.
When I arrived at the Kitsap dock I waited for the pedestrian bridge to connect to the ferry deck.
I walked off the ferry and my friend Beth was waiting for me and we drove to Poulsbo first and then to her home for lunch. I’ll show more photos of our adventures and her beautiful home in another post. Our friendship began through our sons. Our sons began their friendship in grade school and are still good buds. What a blessing to be friends with your children’s friends!
“It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.”

Between Sequim and Port Angeles on a bluff above the Strait of Juan de Fuca is a beautiful Inn dedicated to reflect the spiritual legacy that was the foundation of our country. Here’s a little recap of our journey for High Tea at the George Washington Inn.
We woke up to a significant wind storm on the morning of George Washington’s Birthday. We were hoping our ferry crossing on the Puget Sound would go well. We crossed with rocking and rolling and white caps in view.
We picked up Beth in the historic little town of Port Gamble and crossed the Hood Canal bridge without incident. When we turned the bend into Sequim we were hit head on with some gale force winds that made me keep a tight grip on the steering wheel. We were visually impressed when we turned up the driveway to the George Washington Inn.
How fun to have to be squinting in the bright sunshine! Despite the wind the weather treated us kindly.
What a wonderful surprise when we walked into the front door and George Washington greeted us!
He was kind enough to take a photo with us.
We were early so we toured the Inn before our tea time.
The guest rooms were so lovely. The soaking tub really was inviting. We headed out to see the views from the Terrace.
There was a driving wind blowing across the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
Did I already mention how lovely it was to have the sun shining brightly?! We headed back inside and downstairs to look around.
The Inn has great comfortable spaces and we enjoyed this sitting area before we headed into Tea. My next post will show all my photos from our High Tea time which included time with George Washington and hearing some history of his life.
What a wonderful setting. We all agreed that it would be a very special treat to stay overnight at this beautifully appointed and comfortable Inn. The Innkeepers made us feel right at home. This Inn and property also participate in the annual Lavender Farm Faire. How great it would be to stay here during the festival!
