Springtime in Poulsbo

As I have said on this blog, we have had lots of very cool(cold) weather! The last two days have been lovely. As I don't like the heat, the low 60's have been perfect for me. We had errands in Poulsbo today so I took the trusty camera. I Hope you enjoy the pictures we took!

This is the waterfront park in downtown Poulsbo. There is a row of these lovely pink plums.



The sky was really this blue!

This yard has a garden of peonies. In June this will be full of several varieties of peonies.

Here is a view of downtown from up the hill where we walked.

Wow! that's a colorful sail!

We love to sit in this little park and watch the gulls. They swoop down and find a clam.

Then they drop it on the deck to crack it open. Then, lunch time!

This is all that was left!

I guess there are many hungry gulls!

This view takes my breath away!

Back in town, a shop has this little Viking ship on the weather vane, a nod to the Norwegian heritage of Poulsbo.

This Lutheran Church is one of the oldest buildings in Poulsbo.
I hope you are all having a wonderful Spring week-end! Thanks for taking a look!

  5. Thank you for sharing your beautiful pictures! I grew up in Sumner, on McNeil Island, Tacoma and after I was married we lived in Puyallup. My husband worked at Keyport for awhile back in the 70s. Beautiful place! Now I'm homesick!
