we took the the ferry over to bainbridge for the day to do some exploring. the ferry is quick, maybe 30 minutes. you can drive right on and then get out and hang on the upper decks. the weather was amazing so we went to the very top and waved goodbye to the city. i had done a little research and found a great little italian restaurant for us to stop in at and grab some lunch. all of the food ended up being fantastic! we finished off every last bite then made our way to the water.
jack fell asleep after lunch so i sat on a log holding him while the kids played in the water. they used their imaginations and played with sticks and rocks for hours. jack woke up and skipped rocks with ivan. well jack dumped rocks in the water while ivan skipped rocks.
bainbridge feels like a small town and i guess it probably is. its quaint + the downtown is charming. the houses all along the water are beautiful with the most stunning views of the city. its very green + woodsy. i wouldn’t mind spending a little more time exploring the island.
if you get the chance you should take the ferry over to bainbridge and do a little exploring. it really is beautiful and the views of the city can’t be beat!
