Port Townsend, WA: Architectural Cuteness

Scroll down to content

I haven’t been gone week and already my trip is getting ahead of my posts. I think the easiest method will be photo posts with captions beneath each photo. Here we go!

 

This super cool little donut place was not yet open but was positioned on the main drag downtown. Bonnie said she couldn't wait for it to open. Is this a cable car? Whatever it is, I would buy doughnuts there just to be able able to enjoy the quirky, pocket-sized store.

Doorways that inspire a photo in the U.S. are rare and that's sad. Port Townsend was an exception. This was my winning choice by far and when I showed it to Bonnie she said, "Where is that!! I want it printed for my wall!" The home itself was unusual, right on the water and likely having a past life in some type of commercial maritime use. A sign nearby said it was a private home but there was a wrap-around boardwalk without any gates so it seemed the public was free to walk around for the views. The following photos are other doors on the non-water side of the house.

This was the view from the boardwalk on the backside of the house with the cool door.

Finally, this is where I stayed-

This is the gate to Bonnie’s place. You cannot see the house. Pass through the gate and follow a short path to her adorable door…
Home, sweet home.
Home, sweet home.
