The Puget Sound Region »
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Now, let's shift to a considerably larger area - the Puget Sound region.
The great thing about living in Mason County, is that you're outside life in the fast lane, but everything you'd like to do is usually within a comfortable driving distance.
You can spend the day on the Pacific Ocean at Ocean Shores about 60 miles west, and that night watch hockey at the Tacoma Dome.
Bellingham, near Canada's British Columbia border, looks like forever and a day away, but is actually less than four hours of which 30 minutes is a relaxing ferry ride from Kingston to Edmonds.
Leave your car at Bremerton, and take the ferry to spend a day at Pike Street Market Place in Seattle. Make sure you take a shopping bag, there's lots of local organic produce. There's always a great fish throwing show by the local fish mongers at the entrance.
And someday soon, we hope to see Skokomish Farms with a booth at the Market.
While you're walking back to the ferry drop by "SAM", the Seattle Art Museum. Assuming you're afoot, the Puget Sound ferry is free to Seattle, then a small charge returning to Bremerton.
Trying to relate every activity that takes place during the year around the Puget Sound would take pages. Remember, you're talking about an area that has a 4.1 million population.
And at night, come back to Skokomish Farms, where everything is wonderfully very, very quiet.........
