Daytripping: Kitsap Peninsula & Lighthouse Keeper’s Home

by Andrea on October 13, 2011

Over the weekend, our family headed to the Kitsap Peninsula for a little daytrip.  I highly recommend it to anyone in the area.  We caught the Edmonds Ferry over to Kingston and drove to Poulsbo in time for lunch. Poulsbo is right on the water and seems to be quite proud of its nordic heritage.  Being from Norwegian Ballard myself, it pleased me to see so many reminders of Norway pride around town.

For lunch, we had several restaurants to choose from and ended up at family-friendly Tizley’s Europub.  Perhaps it was due to Octoberfest, but the menu was heavily German.  The best thing we had was the nitro Port Townsend Stout microbrew.  So scrumptious!

After lunch we headed to the marina park for some play time.  The view of the marina and channel is gorgeous.

As we were headed back to the car, look what I found!

They were bound to have milk glass in there, right?  This was the first time since my newfound love of milk glass that I had popped into an Antique shop to check for milk glass.  I really need to save my pennies; there were so many lovely pieces.  Here were some of my favorites:

Finally, we got back in the car and drove to Point No Point park for a little fishing and beach play.  This beach has a lighthouse and the former lighthouse keeper’s home.  The best part is that it’s now available as a vacation rental!  This place looks awesome, and the view is unbeatable.  As we walked by, there was some ladies on the porch enjoying the sunshine and views.  Check out this review from the Seattle Times.  Here are some photos of the home, lighthouse, park, and beach.

I hope you check out this little gem in the near future!
