Port Townsend

A few months ago, my sweet Great-Uncle Ralph passed away who had lived in Port Townsend for many years. We attended the wake at his home and enjoyed looking through photos from his youth with his beautiful bride, my Aunt Gladys. On our way home we stopped in town to see the shops. It had been several years since our last visit and noticed some changes. The Tyler Street Coffee House we had so liked was out of business, giving room for other shops to emerge.

 Best Find of the Day: The UnderTown Coffee Bar and Cafe. 
Located in the basement of a brick building, with an eclectic, European feel, 
and plenty of space to find your own corner and enjoy some good 
espresso roasted by Stumptown . Definitely one of the coolest 
coffee shops I've ever been in.

Three rooms altogether connected by brick archways...pretty cool.

 Perfect Ending Cupcakes, rightfully named is the new and only
cupcake shop in town with a simple menu that will make any age
happy. We got to meet the owner LaTrecia who bakes her heart
and soul into these beautiful, sugary treats.

The Rose Theater, a local company dedicated to the arts
offers popular, independent, and foreign films; Special Events including:
plays, operas, orchestras and an annual Film Festival.

Better Living through Coffee, a lively, shop with a view, offers 
live music, locally roasted beans, breakfast and lunch items, special 
events such as: Story Night, Sunday Morning Music and Fiddle Tunes.

A colorful cityscape full of antique charm.
