Westfalia Road Trip Day 12 – Bainbridge Island to Millersylvania

What a great nights sleep!  As mentioned yesterday we stayed at a friends property which had a seemingly endless supply of apples and blackberries.  Granola and fresh fruit for breakfast, delicious!

To catch the Ferry to Seattle we headed to Downtown Bainbridge.  We had an hour to burn before heading to the Ferry so we stopped at the Blackbird Bakery for a bite and did a little bit of shopping.  We really liked this town, it’s on our list of places to return to.

As seems to be par for the coarse we almost missed the Ferry and were the last ones to ssqueeze on.  Off to Seattle!

The Ferry docked close to Pike’s Market so we headed straight there to check that off the list.  One place that was kind of cool was RGB (Rachel’s Ginger Beer) which had just opened a store in the Market.  Since I’m in the craft beer industry it was interesting to check out a craft soda company.  Should also note they do serve the sodas with booze in them too.

We decided not to stay the night in Seattle and start heading towards Portland.  We put a bunch of miles on using the freeway and it was freeway boring.  We ended up camping about an hour from Portland at Millersylvania State Park, really that’s it’s name.  The park was nothing special but did have a lake and some hiking trails, it seems like a place used by people not wanting to travel to far to camp.

We went for a walk and then fired up the camp stove for some vegetarian chilli before cleaning up and hitting the hay.
