Ferry to Bainbridge

August 28 , 2012 by: Hong Family

One of the things I love about living in Seattle is the proximity of the sea to west and the mountains to the east. This past weekend, The Geek’s mom made a visit and we enjoyed a ferry ride to Bainbridge Island.

This is the view from the ferry dock. The newest member of the waterfront is that gorgeous ferris wheel, which deserves a post all on its own.

There are tons of cute boutiques including this vintage coastal home shop. By the way if you are there on a Saturday, check out their farmer’s market, one of the best ones I’ve been to!

I found my inspiration for the next DIY. I love the simplicity of the linen on the driftwood.

Our day ended with a visit to the Scandanavian town of Poulsbo, located northwest of Bainbridge Island. If you make a stop pick up a sweet or savory snack at Sluy’s. They have the best kruellers!


  • Here are some totally disjointed, yet somehow related, comments … Great photos. I hear that the ferris wheel is wonderful and that a ride lasts almost 20 minutes!! Wow. The red on cream pitcher with the linen, driftwood, etc. is the essence of end-of-the-summer freshness. If you ever get the chance to eat at Hitchcock on Bainbridge, it’s amazing.


  • Thanks for the tip Victoria! We haven’t eaten there but had brunch at Nola’s and that was delish!

  • Baked macaroni and cheese is a classic and it's even better with that crispy cheese crust right from the oven. #bakedmacaroniandcheese #macaroniandcheesebaked #macandcheese #bakedmacandcheese
