Sights Around Port Townsend

Jefferson County Courthouse

Port Townsend was one of the earliest towns established in Washington State. While not a large town even now, it has a lot of interesting architecture that makes photography a pleasant diversion.

Mt Baker

Mt Baker from the Port Townsend – Coupeville Ferry (near the Coupeville Dock)

The ferry ride to Coupeville from Port Townsend is a pleasant 35 minute trip. When the weather is clear, it is also very scenic. I like to pay the $1.80 walk-on ferry fare and ride across, walk off the ferry, pay the fare and take the return boat. There isn’t much around the Coupeville ferry dock except a boat launch and a nice park. While the park is a nice visit, it isn’t a necessity. I always hope to catch sight of some Orca on the trip across, but this day I only saw a couple of harbor seals … and that was a brief glimpse at a distance (no photo).

Birds at the Feeder

Junco and Downy Woodpecker

I am lucky to have a nice office to work on my photography that has a window that looks out onto the yard and right at the bird feeders. When I get some likely suspects, I grab my camera and a big lens and see what I get.
