Weekend at Port Ludlow (Part Two)
Aside from enjoying the beautiful scenery, eating delicious meals and spending time at the beach we also spent time boating, hiking, and kayaking during our stay at Port Ludlow Resort. The marina which is located just a few hundred yards from the resort makes it easy to rent a boat or kayak at your convenience.
Jasper was a little uncertain about going fast on the boat, so we ended spending our time puttering around and checking out the local wildlife and shorelines instead.
Jasper taking the wheel. One of the things I adore most about Jasper is how he oozes with confidence. He is fairly certain whatever he tries he is bound to be good at. I hope he stays this way forever!
Last Summer I snagged this life vest from Costco. I am really glad I did because not only does it fit Jasper like a glove, but he is comfortable and happy wearing it. I want him to be comfortable trying new things and having something consistent like his own life vest has proven to be a good investment already.
One morning we headed to Port Ludlow Falls. It was a short loop which Jasper proudly did all by himself. This was the first time he had hiked a trail on his own, so we were very proud of him!
One afternoon we took a short drive out to Marrowstone Island. We stopped at at Nordland General Store for supplies for a picnic and then proceeded to Mystery Bay State Park to enjoy them. Marrowstone and Nordland are charming little pockets of Washington and well worth the detour if you are in the area.
My favorite part of traveling is the culinary adventure in which is provides. We were able to enjoy this cheese at Port Ludlow Resort, The Port Townsend Farmer's Market and now here where it was made.
For all the times we have visited Port Townsend we have never been to their farmer's market. During our time there we made it point to revisit some of the local farms we had visited the day prior during our farm tour with Port Ludlow Resort.
When you are with Dad if you want ice cream for breakfast, you get ice cream for breakfast. Lucky guy!
The most charming little pie shop display I have ever seen!
After the farmer's market we headed downtown to watch the boats come in and out of the harbor. Slowly but surely we are turning our little guy into a modern day adventurer. I hope he always dreams big, love the outdoors and fills his life with a good dose of adventure!

For a weekend or a week there is plenty to see and do in and around Port Ludlow and the surrounding area. You can hike in the morning, spend the afternoon at the beach or go on a little adventure. You can end the day with a quiet paddle or boat ride along the shoreline and a relaxing dinner at Port Ludlow Resort.
