Seattle Day Trip: By Ferry to Port Townsend

View of Mount Baker across Puget Sound from the Port Townsend waterfront

Port Townsend, with its many well-preserved Victorian homes and buildings, is one of the most picturesque towns in the Pacific Northwest.  It is a delightful destination for a day trip from Seattle.  The easiest way to get there is via the Edmonds-Kingston ferry to the Olympic Peninsula.  Here are some photos from a recent visit:
