Bainbridge Island

Avery has been asking about ferry boats for a while, and we knew he’d love to go on one. So for one of our last weekends without a second child we caught a ferry out to Bainbridge Island for the day. It was cold and windy on the ferry ride, but that didn’t matter to Avery. He loved running around the deck and pointing out all the other sailboats.
Out on Bainbridge we went to Fort Ward State Park and took a walk. It’s an old military installation where they looked out for Japanese submarines (which never arrived). It’s one of the last waterways before you reach Bremerton.
We had some lunch in town and then stopped at Pegasus Coffee House. We met a nice old lady who lived on Bainbridge for 50 years. She had four grown sons and they still live on the island too. Finally we visited a huge playground before making the ferry trip home.
