This is beautiful Eagle Harbor on Bainbridge Island, Washington. Wouldn’t you like to be sitting on that bench there enjoying the sunshine and that view??
Sooo very peaceful…
We spent a morning following that trail as it wandered though the park….
past the waterfront….and in and out of neighborhoods with cute homes.
Doesn’t this little stone one remind you of Iris’ cottage in The Holiday? 🙂
My photo does not do this next lovely shingled one justice.
It even had a free library by its driveway.
(I thought that was wonderful!)
A little further down the road was this one…
and then this one.
The landscaping with stones out front was beautiful.
And just look at the natural landscaping here.
You’d never have to mow the lawn!
The waterfront path took us past community vegetable gardens. Everything was so lush and green there. It is obvious they get a lot of rain in that area of the country.
Walking on, we came to this charming church…
and then…this cottage with its very cute flowerbed.
It was located right next to The Eagle Harbor Inn, the inn where we were staying. 🙂
This was the gorgeous view from the inn.
(Obviously it is located right next to the waterfront,
and that is their boat you see there in the middle.)
The inn has kind of a different set-up. It is a series of buildings around a few small courtyards.
There is no “front desk” for you to check in. You make your reservation, and they send you information on how to get into your room using a key pad entry when it is time for you to arrive.
And although there is no real office for the inn, there is a small common area with supplies for coffee.
My husband, our son, and I stayed in the spacious Harbor suite.
How do you like the model ships on the headboard?
I thought they were a unique accent for a room in an inn,
(but quite fitting for an inn by a harbor. 🙂 )
The sofa folds out into a sofa bed, and extra linens are kept in the trunk there.
The bathroom was also large (although I could not find an angle that would work for photographing the entire room. 🙁 ) The shower was a generous size.
And that is almost all I have time to share with you today. Before we take off exploring the Olympic Peninsula, I do have one more post about two neat places we toured on Bainbridge Island. So I will leave you with a sneak peek of them.
(They really were pretty, and I think you are going to love seeing them. 🙂 )
And because it is Father’s Day I am going to leave you with something entirely for my father. He loves classical music and bluegrass (and his brother worked for the railroad!) so I think he will enjoy this piece of music. I hope it keeps your toes tapping! 🙂
Until next time…
