9/20/12–Poulsbo, WA

On 9/20 we had to meet Ken’s high school friend Ray and his wife Susan for dinner in Port Townsend.  So we got started before noon and drove to Poulsbo, WA to look around.  My grandparents lived in that area for many years so it was interesting just to drive around and see how things had changed.  I believe we were last there in about 1998, and we were able to find their home.  At that time, the current owner of the home was there and he gave us a tour.  He had found an old envelope from Sears addressed to my grandmother when he first moved in there and had saved it all that time.  He sent that envelope home with me which was very nice of him to do.  Anyway…we tried to find their home again, but things have built up so much in the area that I couldn’t be sure and didn’t want to take the time going down random driveways.

Obviously by the display of flags, this is a very Scandinavian community.


The marina in the downtown area of Poulsbo.


Driving along the waterfront, Ken spotted this unique buoy.


When we crossed the Hoods Canal Bridge earlier in the day, it was very foggy.  On our way back to the other side, it cleared up for a photo.


That evening we met Ken’s high school friend Ray and his wife Susan for dinner at The Belmont in Port Townsend.  We had a good meal and a good visit with friends.
