Water Street Delivery

Delivering Beer on Water Street
Delivering Beer on Water Street

There are no alleys large enough to accommodate delivery trucks in downtown Port Townsend, so they just park in the middle of the street. Locals just drive around them. Occasionally, tourists will try and wait for them to move before proceeding, backing traffic up for blocks. This guy was delivering beer to Sirens Tavern, on the third floor. There’s no elevator, so as you can imagine, he was parked there for a bit.

Bywater Bay State Park

Bywater Bay Lagoon
Bywater Bay Lagoon

Bywater Bay State Park is just north of the Hood Canal Bridge and adjacent to the Shine Tidelands State Park. Don’t ask why we need two contiguous parks. They’re there. This lagoon fills up at high tide and empties as the water goes out. The stream cuts the sand bar that would otherwise connect the island of Hood’s Head to the Peninsula. You can usually see a heron or two here and occasionally, an osprey.
