Port Townsend

October 7, 2014

Port Townsend, Washington USA

Port Townsend was a real bright spot as we caught up with Dianna and Bob, sailing friends whom we hadn't seen since 2008 in Australia.  We enjoyed happy hour aboard LightSpeed with some tasty Port Townsend beers (thanks to Bob & Dianna) and then a great meal at the Banana leaf Thai restaurant, thanks for treating and the warm welcome back to the Pacific Northwest! .... and Shell is still thanking you for the red feather toy.
Bob and Dianna know how to party.

We anchored out off the old ferry dock, as Port Hudson marina wanted the catamaran rate of $1.50 a foot for a night on their nearly empty docks.  Yep, with tax that $68 dollars a night.  Port Hudson is one of the few places we visited in the world that charge an extra 50% for cats and a disappointment when the docks were empty on an off season weekday!
