Wanderlust Wednesday: Port Townsend

This is basically Port Townsend round two, but I had to share with you more from this charming little town. It is about a 30 minute ferry ride from Edmonds (which is about 30 minutes up from Seattle). The ferry with a driver + passenger + car was around $20.00 and super easy to navigate. The ferry delivers you right to Kingston so make sure you bring a car over because you have another 45 minute drive up to Port Townsend. It makes an awesome weekend getaway because it is not too far that you are driving the whole time, but it is far enough to feel like you've gone somewhere! So if you are in Seattle for a long trip, definitely make time Port Townsend. 
We were lucky enough to catch the Saturday farmers market, where I had the BEST cannele outside of Paris! If you don't know what that is, you better find one to eat ASAP.

We then spent the rest of our morning taking photos. Port Townsend is definitely a photographer's dream, with all its brick and victorian buildings!











The Conservatory was one of my favorite shops in PT. Well-curated gifts, with a nautical twist.

Totally obsessed with the clam cannery. And I was told from another Seattle blogger, Sarah that the cannery is now a wedding venue! 













We ate at the Fountain Cafe. We found that the people of Port Townsend are really into their food. All the restaurants use locally grown produce, and source pretty much everything from pasta to pancetta from local farmers and shops.  It made for an absolutely delicious meal of fettucini with wild mushrooms and pancetta.
