Welcome to Washington! I originally moved to Washington back in the spring of 2002, and I rented a room at a bed and breakfast in Olalla (this town is in between Gig Harbor and Port Orchard). I lived in West Seattle for a couple of months, and I have been living in Queen Anne (Seattle) for the past couple of years. I will be moving back to Kitsap County at the end of this month and living in Poulsbo. Kitsap County had a special place in my heart, and I am looking forward to having ferry friends again when I will be commuting by ferry (Bainbridge Island this time around) to go to work in Seattle.
It should be a fun summer with lots of activities going on. I really like Central Market in Poulsbo. I like the strawberry smoothies at the cafe, and I order a lot of birthday cakes at the bakery. They do such a good job. As well, there is a Lavender Festival in the middle of July up in Sequim, Washington. My inlaws live in Sequim.
