Change of Plans

Posted by msdesign21 | Posted in You trippin! | Posted on 24-09-2010


Well we were planning on going back up to Canada to Whistler, but we changed our minds and took a ferry across Puget Sound to Bainbridge Island instead. It was quite the trip! The views of downtown Seattle were very nice. I am guessing it was Stanley’s first time on a boat, I wish I could figure out a way to get him down to the Caribbean!

The day before we left Seattle we visited the Experience Music Project suggested to us by our good friends Lauren and Chris who went this summer. The building and exhibit was incredible! You really should check out pics on Google. I guess there was a guy in Seattle who collected a ton of different music memorabilia and the majority of it is his. They had an exhibit on music from the Northwest featuring the “controversial song” Louie, Louie and the birthplace of grunge as well as a whole exhibit on Seattle born, Jimi Hendrix. There was a video section with over 500 interviews of influential music figures, we watched videos on Santana, the inventor of the solid body guitar, Afrika Bambaataa and the producer of Me and Bobby McGee to name a few. I feel like even if we spent the whole day there we probably wouldn’t even of seen 1/2 of it.

After the ferry ride over to the Washington peninsula we found a great little town to spend the weekend, Port Townsend. It was really nice here Wednesday, yesterday was windy, cold and rainy, just what we would expect Northwestern WA weather to be like. We had a fantastic meal the first night at the Fountain Cafe, which seemed to be the locals favorite, as I asked people at the brewery yesterday for suggestions. This weekend there is a film festival in Port Townsend so that should bring quite a buzz to this otherwise small, quaint, port town. Here are some photos from our last few days and I will post more about this cute little hippie town after the weekend. Thanks for following!
