Alderbrook Resort & Spa - Valentine's Day 2008

For Valentine's Day this year Chris surprised me with a trip to the Alderbrook Resort & Spa on Hood Canal. I'd never been out to that area before and we had a blast! We had planned on golfing, but decided to try fishing our way back home instead. We didn't catch anything, not a single bite, but we enjoyed it. Here is map showing the route we took. The red circle is where the resort was.

And, here are some photos from the journey. Chris House drove the first day - super fast!

We packed enough for a weeks vacation, even though we were only going overnight.

On the way up north on the west side of the canal we stopped to fish at a couple of spots. One of them being Potlatch State Park.

Alas, fishing wasn't for us that day so we continued north enjoying the scenery until we reached Port Townsend. We strolled through the kitschy tourist shops and enjoyed a yummy lunch at Water Street Brewing. We then drove to Bainbridge Island where we caught the ferry back to Seattle.

Appropriately we rode the Wenatchee home.
