Last one!


Today we drove about 40 miles from Sequim to visit the Scandinavian town of Poulsbo, Washington. The town has a long history as a destination for immigrants from Scandinavia, particularly Norway and Finland.

Downtown Poulsbo maintains a Scandinavian theme in its shops and restaurants, and is a popular regional tourist destination. One of its local products is now available worldwide, Poulsbo Bread, originally made in the local bakery. Many visitors arrive by boat; there are three marinas near the town, and the town's harbor is an excellent anchorage.

We enjoyed lunch at Sheila's Cafe on the Bay and had some awesome (healthy) cookies from the bakery. :-) I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story.
