Super Mini Vacation

Chuck had today off (Wednesday) so we decided to go over to Poulsbo, a Nordic style town not from us. There's a 30 minute ferry ride then just a 15 minute drive. 
The weather was sunny when we left our side of Puget Sound and still cool and cloudy when we got to the other side, but it cleared up quickly and turned out to be a beautiful day! On the ferry you're able to get out of your car and go up one flight to the Sun Deck. It's a beautiful view and gets windy pretty fast.

 We wandered around, ate lunch at the Green Light Cafe, did some shopping, and bought some chocolate for when we got home. 

I just realized I never got any pictures of me and Chuck! Sigh. We sat at a beautiful park and watched the boats come and go from the marina.

We were there for a few hours, then got in line to catch the next ferry

You can see Mount Baker to the right of the ferry

As we pulled onto our street, it was like we had been gone for a week! We hadn't driven onto the ferry in quite a while, the different scenery, new shops, a fun restaurant... It was exactly what we needed!

Good for you for taking off and enjoying this day in Poulsbo. It's always fun to ride the ferry across the water! Lovely photos.
