This post is long overdue but the fond memories of attending Journalfest in Port Townsend are still fresh in my mind. It was a great retreat, as are all events that Teesha and Tracy host. I flew into Seattle where I met up with Robin for the drive over to Fort Worden. I haven’t been up there for a few years and I’ve missed it so much.
Once the rain subsided, we wandered down to the Public Market where I got these shots–fresh produce and weathered wall posters.
This fish decor was in the Dahlia Lounge, one of chef Tom Douglas’ fabulous restaurants. We had an amazing lunch, then went next door to the Dahlia Bakery. The only thing I remember was the Coconut Pie Bite. I’m not particularly fond of coconut pie, but this was to die for. Seriously. We walked down the streets of Seattle, just licking our fingers and groaning–must’ve raised some eyebrows! We had eaten at the Palace Kitchen the night before, one of his other restaurants. The food there was impressive as well, so if you’re in town, you might want to check out one of his haunts. Good stuff!
