Besides being a maritime center for boatbuilders and sailors, the main attractions are the town's beautiful Victorian buildings and Fort Worden State Park. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of military history, so I skipped out on the actual fort and walked along the beach to the Point Wilson Lighthouse instead. My first stop, however, was the oddly named Better Living Through Coffee.
Lunch: coffee (Sumatra Dark) and organic lentil soup.
Then up the hill I went...
...to enjoy the view.
On my way to the lighthouse.
All in all, the getaway was a most pleasant one, and a terrific opportunity to get to know my beloved Pacific Northwest a little better.
Finally, a bit of advice: do not - I repeat, do not - miss out on the super cozy Owl Sprit cafe if you happen to be in the area. Their delicious cherry pie made its way to my stomach before I had time to take a picture; perhaps I will have to come back for another piece... (Thanks for the tip, DT!)
PS. Spring! Springspringspring!
