August 31, 2012 - Port Townsend Bay on the night of the rare Blue Moon.

This picture shows the moon rising over the Cascade Mountains across Port Townsend Bay, with the ferry crossing to Coupeville on Whidbey Island.

You can just barely see Mount Pilchuck in the misty blue background.

Port Townsend is located on the Northeast tip of the Olympic Peninsula, surrounded by water and mountains.

An early morning ferryboat run from Whidbey Island to Port Townsend, with the majestic beauty of the Cascade Mountain range showing in the background. Just one more compelling reason to live in our Victorian seaport and arts community.

This aerial photo of Port townsend shows the Straits of Juan de Fuca across the top and Port Townsend Bay on the right.

The inland body of water is the Kah Tai Lagoon, which features a beautiful park with many walking trails.

The Port of Port Townsend marina is easily visable. Behind it is the boatworks yard with everything a boat owner could possibly want or need.

At the top of the picture is Whidbey Island with beautiful parks such as Fort Casey and Deception Pass, great shopping in quaint Coupeville, and beautiful scenic drives. It's just a short ferry ride from Port Townsend

The little spit of land at the top left is the location of the lighthouse at Fort Worden, backed by the hundreds of acres of woods with beautiful walking trails.The beaches are great for walking, beachcombing, swimming, fishing, and just plain relaxing.

Fort Worden is home to Centrum Foundation which brings such wonderful music festivals to Port Townsend, such as Fiddle Tunes, Jazz, and Bluegrass.

Bring your RV and stay at the campground or rent one of the Officer's Houses, as seen in the movie An Officer and a Gentleman.

locater map of Port Townsend, WashingtonPort Townsend is a quiet Victorian seaport at the tip of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington, so peaceful it seems worlds away from the hustle and bustle of big city life, yet it's only a short drive and a delightful ferry ride to Seattle.

sailing in Port Townsend Port Townsend is surrounded by water - the Straits of Juan de Fuca, Admiralty inlet, and Discovery Bay. So it's little wonder that we have so many water sports - fishing, sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, scuba diving, and of course, beach combing.

sunset at Cape George Colony near Port townsendWe get over 200 days of sunshine a year, which makes for lots of gorgeous sunsets. This one was caught at Cape George, a waterfront development with spectacular views of the Olympic Mountains, Discovery Bay, and the Straits of Juan de Fuca. It's located just a few minutes from Port Townsend.

Port Townsend is surrounded by marvelous beaches, both public and private. This one is part of Kala Point, a private, gated community a few minutes from Port Townsend with houses, condos, and townhouses. Besides the beach, amenities include tennis courts, a club house with swimming pool, wooded walking trails, and fabulous views of the water and mountains.
