Last weekend, my husband and I celebrated our 42nd anniversary! I am so grateful to share my life with this man. I wouldn’t be who I am today without him. He believes in me, trusts me, shares values with me, and supports me. We’ve been through rough times, but have always prevailed.
We celebrated by heading off to Port Townsend, WA for an overnight visit. Port Townsend has been one of our favorite beach destinations for 30 years now and we’re always happy to return. Our 1st stop was at Fort Warden State Park, (where the movie Pretty Woman was filmed).
As you can see from the pictures, the weather was perfect! We found a comfortable log to sit on and just soaked up the sun and enjoyed the sounds of the waves and the sea gulls.
Eventually we wandered into town, cruised the art galleries and settled on a new (to us) restaurant for lunch, called Sirens. We sat upstairs on a balcony overlooking the water. I swear, it was the best hamburger I’ve ever eaten. And the view…well just take a look!
When you have a view like that, you don’t even want to finish your lunch and have to give up your seat!
After lunch, we headed over to Lois Venarchick’s shop, Wynwoods Gallery and Studio. This is my one of my favorite bead shops anywhere. Lois seems to have a knack for finding unique beads. I always find a treasure to take home with me when I am there. Lois also designs and casts her own metal charms and pendants and that was what I was after on this trip! Here’s what I came away with. Don’t you just love these?
Later we went over to North Beach for a nice walk before dinner. And for dinner we went to a restaurant that Lois and her husband Phil suggested. OMG, our taste buds died and went to heaven. The food was exquisite! It was the perfect place for an anniversary celebration.
We had a delightful surprise waiting for us when we returned to our motel room. Our daughter had ordered champagne for us and had it delivered to our room. We were so touched by her thoughtfulness! We sat on our balcony, sipped champagne and looked out over the marina.
I love spending time at the ocean. It is my happy place. I have a collection in my jewelry shop called Surf & Sand, which has all my ocean themed work. Here are a couple examples of what you can find there.
