Earlier this week we traveled on the Kitsap Peninsula and the Olympic Peninsula to Port Townsend to visit an Aunt and Uncle. We stayed overnight there, but kept our ear on the weather forecast. Snow was on the way, with a predicted 6 to 9 inches possible along Hood Canal.
We had traveled across the Narrows Bridge in Tacoma and north up the Kitsap Peninsula to our destination, but we were looking for the most northerly and quickest route off of the peninsula to get home. Snow was coming to the southwest.
We drove through the woods and over the Hood Canal Floating Bridge.
On our way we passed through Port Gamble. Once a busy sawmill town, it is now a National Historic Landmark. Since the weather wasn't so bad here, we stopped to look around.

We will have to return when the weather is better and the shops are open. It is a delightful place, and it's really not that far away.
But now it was time to catch the Winslow - Edmonds ferry and get back to the mainland.
