For today, I just wanted to share the pictures we took on our trip up the Puget Sound this week. My husband and I jumped in our rental car and drove wherever our hearts desired. We ate, we shopped, we explored, we had a blast. The day ended with a trip across the sound by ferry, the stunning nighttime approach to downtown Seattle.
I'll start out with my ceramic projects. My mug was fired, but I did see where I'd not painted enough on or missed spots.
That helped me to hone my skills for the appetizer platter. It looks small in this picture, but is actually quite large. It'll fire the deep Tuscan Red of my mug's handle.I took extra care to make sure there was no white showing. Can't wait to get it! My husband and I stopped there for coffee the morning we left for adventures so that I could put one extra coat on the middle, just to be safe.
From Kingston. It was a cold, rainy day, but when you're on an adventure, you don't really care much about that!
The pseudo-town of Port Gamble.
Port Townsend, and the floating bridge on the way to Port Townsend.
The ferry arriving. We didn't take it, but drove back down to Bainbridge Island instead so that we would be dropped off in downtown Seattle.
I had to include this picture we took. It's my new burgundy velveteen cap from the Mad Hatter in downtown Port Townsend! I love my hats! I actually got two that day: the one on my head in the picture, and a hand-knit wool cap I wore the rest of the day.
And off to Seattle! The rest of the pictures are taken from the ferry ride.
