2009 part three: grad trip!
13/01/2010 § Leave a comment
My friend Steph and I from the program organized a long-weekend grad trip to Washington. We spent 2 nights in Port Towsend, a small, funky little town on the Olympic Peninsula and then drove to Seattle and spent a night there. It was a lot of fun, and almost the whole class went… which was awesome!
In Port Townsend we ended up staying at Fort Worden, which was an active army base from 1902-53, and now a state park. A bunch of us rented 2 units in this old apartment and the rest camped down at the beach. It was pretty cool, the apartments were super cheap and spacious, we had 2 units connected on the upper floor so basically had the whole upper floor of this building to ourselves, plus 2 kitchens which was great for communal meals. My family used to have a cabin about 20 mins away from Port Towsend and one of my favorite memories from when I was a kid was exploring the bunkers at Fort Worden with my cousins. They’re kind of creepy though..
This post is kind of long.. I’ll post the Seattle pics later.
