Summer of 2007, falling in love with the Olympic Peninsula

Summer of 2007, falling in love with the Olympic Peninsula


This is a blog about nothing. No, there’s no central theme going on here, it’s just about me and what all I’m up to. That could involve anything: driving across the country,¬† going wheat-free, or how much I hate snow. (I really hate snow!)

People keep asking me to be sure to keep in touch, and if I email all those people, I’ll be emailing so much that I won’t be able to do much else, and then there wouldn’t be anything worth telling them. I guess that’s why blogging was invented. (And no, I didn’t mean you. I’ll still email you.)

One thing I know, I’m not ready to settle down. I was settled down for a long time, and it didn’t suit me. This is not the story of that, this is the story of moving forward, changing, becoming.

I’ve been having all kinds of adventures living in Port Townsend, WA for the last year and a half. What a town! I just really love PT & have felt so welcomed and at home here. I’ll be writing more about the PT adventures, but in the meantime I’m getting ready to leave, for more adventures.

Artsy little¬† towns have a big place in my heart, so I’ll be looking for more on my journeys. (Suggestions are welcome!) At this point, I don’t feel like settling down, so I’m going to be nomadic for a while. Actually more like migratory; I like to stay for a while and get to know a place.

Next up is the Shenandoah region of Virginia. In the meantime, I’ll be packing and trying to squeeze in all the things I still want to do while I’m here, and setting down some of the PT experience.

Still to do:

  • Kayaking down Dungeness Spit
  • Hoh Rainforest
  • Skagit Tulip Farms
  • Whidbey Island

And I’m sure there’s more I’m forgetting right now…

    Welcome to the blogosphere, Sara! Have you checked out Jacksonville, Oregon? It’s a great little town, a national historic landmark, good food, and hosts the fabulous Britt Festival (music) each year that goes all summer.

    Thanks, JoAnn! I haven’t heard of Jacksonville, but I’ll be sure to check it out!
