Port Gamble, Washington - A Sleeper Hit!

Note: this is the last in a series on our family vacation in Washington State

Port Gamble on the Kitsap Peninsula is a charming little town full of hidden surprises. For instance, upstairs in their general store there is a fantastic Sea And Shore Life Museum that is free (although they welcome small donations). The General store sells unique gifts and delicious ice cream desserts and also has a café in the back.

They have a playhouse as well - the Port Gamble Theater. According to my mom, they put on a very good show.

The Port Gamble Theater

For this last visit, we enjoyed viewing the old homes -

exploring a couple of shops -

looking at this old anchor near the history museum (we didn't go in) -

 checking out this cool Elm Tree -

 munching on fresh blackberries -

 and checking out the Dahlia Garden.

When we visited once before, we ate at Mike's Four Star BBQ. The food was great and everyone was very friendly. At that time, we were visiting a summer faire. There is always something fun going on in Port Gamble; check out their listing of events.
