Pacific Northwest & Beyond
A PNW and Travel Blog
If you’re a city dweller who needs a brief escape but doesn’t have the time for an extended getaway, it’s possible to find little waterfront hideaways near Seattle that can allow you to get away from it all without getting too far away from it all. We stayed at this small cabin on Meydenbauer Bay in Medina (graciously loaned to us for an overnight). Read on about this cabin as well as some other near-city hideaways to add to my escape list from cabins to houseboats.
If you want to explore times of yore (sorry about the rhyme), head to Port Townsend for their annual Victorian Festival. We did in 2018 and encountered many a thing, including frightening(ly beautiful) ball gowns, tintype photography, and ghost stories.
Ah, Spring! We’re starting to get some snippets of sun and come out of hibernation. And more festivals start to begin, in preparation for the busy summer festival season. Here are some of the area festivals and events on our radar.
To Cascadia And Beyond…
Pacific Northwest and Beyond, as the name implies, is both a Pacific Northwest blog and a travel blog about places beyond the PNW as well.
I love to travel, but am rooted here in the PNW. I find that, while I love going abroad, exploring the world also makes me appreciate the beauty of my home area.
This site features posts about the Pacific Northwest (eventually including hikes, lodging, food, events), Travel (eventually including destinations, stories, travel tips). and has a small, but growing calendar of PNW events, (from time to time featuring my picks…which, I’ll warn you sometimes tend toward the geeky or weird).
For me, foreign language learning, and photography also relate to travel…so I may also post some resources on foreign language learning or photography as I strive to become better at both.
