Winslow, Bainbridge Island

For an on foot day trip, consider taking the Seattle Waterfront Ferry to Bainbridge Island. This 30 minute scenic ride across the Sound, transports you from the hectic city to quiet sea life. Coming from the terminal , you will be greeted by Winslow Way, the main street through town lined with boutiques and restaurants. No matter what your interests, there is a store for you: Antiques, Books, Yarn, Candy, Paper, Clothing, Home Decor, Toys and Sports. They do a good job at making everyone feel at home here, whether you are the earthy, organic type or the retired, classy type and of course anyone in between.  We particularly enjoy finding candy from our childhood at Bon Bon Confections, stopping in at the Town & Country Market for their fabulous olive bar, and coffee with pastries at Blackbird Bakery. They host a Farmer's Market on Saturdays from April-October. One place we like to go for a little bit of nature is near the Marina, heading West there is a short walking trail that follows the harbor. My favorite place in all of Winslow, it feels like you're in a fairytale book.

For the rafter...

 For the crafter.

 It's hard to find seating here, which tells you
 a little something about their pastries.
