Bainbridge Island

On our last day in Seattle, we hopped an early ferry to Bainbridge Island.

According to the city's website, "Bainbridge Island is located within the Central Puget Sound Basin, east of the Kitsap Peninsula and west of the City of Seattle. The Island has 53 miles of shoreline and is approximately five miles wide and ten miles long, encompassing nearly 17,778 acres, or 28 square miles (73 km²), and is one of the larger islands in Puget Sound."

We hadn't had breakfast, so we stopped in a bakery/cafe for a coffee and a delicious blueberry-ricotta pastry. We walked around the charming main streets, saw the locals shopping at the weekly Farmer's Market, and enjoyed the town's squares and parks.

After wandering for a couple of hours, we shared a sandwich and walked back to the 1:35 ferry. We enjoyed our morning on Bainbridge Island!

This video is a short little view of the island.

So beautiful, and I can't get over the stunning blue sky!

Barb Cabot:

You really saw so much in the days you were there. Lovely and charming places. I've enjoyed this birds eye view through your photos.

Sheena:

When you were at Bainbridge did you find the little ice cream place (just off the main street) called Mora? It is a bit like Grom - you order from a list rather than being able to look at the ice cream. Really good!

I always heard so much about Bainbridge Island during the two years I lived in Washington State but never got there. Love the photos and enjoyed seeing some of the island through the video.
