The Ferry to Bainbridge Island

Thursday I decided to take the ferry to Bainbridge Island, a spot not far from Seattle. It was an easy trip on the bus downtown and a short walk to the pier. The day started off cool and overcast but soon cleared up and became another sunny, beautiful, northwest summer day so it was a really scenic trip.

This is by no means all of the adventure I had in the Seattle area! If I don’t get anything else posted today, I will have plenty of time to prepare photos and blog posts on the way home. I leave early in the morning, meet up with Joel in Atlanta (he has been in Maine and Kansas visiting other family), and then we finish the trip together back to Panama City and David.

  1. Kris, my step sister lives near Bainbridge Island and we bought our house and property from a retired Spanish teacher from Bainbridge Island. When you come to Ometepe, you’ll have to visit Altagracia, the town on the other side of the island. Bainbridge Island is a sister island with Ometepe and they have an office in Altagracia. They support and fund many educational programs on the island and export coffee to Bainbridge where nursing homes and school groups make the labels and prepare the coffee for sale. I want to hear all about it. It looks lovely. Here’s a link: http://bainbridgeometepe.org/

    Used to be quite remote, but not anymore. Several good friends live there and love it – one has a small business selling beautiful papers?? Enjoy!
    PS Great photos – how lucky you have been with the weather!

    Hi Kris, My husband and I have followed your blog & Joel’s for about a year. We are preparing to come visit Panama to see if we’d like to retire there, and we’ve talked to Eduardo about helping us. We live in Olympia WA, just about 1-1/2 hours from Seattle. Wish we could have met up…maybe in Panama!

    • Wow, our paths did come close. Yes by all means let me know when you are going to be in Panama. I will also be in the Seattle area again in January. We will catch up with each other somehow!
