Pacific Northwest and Travel Blog Page

You’ve reached the page with all the Pacific Northwest and Beyond posts ! But if you just want a big list of all of the posts here (not events or projects) in chronological order, you can visit our posts timeline

The word blog always sounded to me like some sort of monster lurking the the murky depths. “Beware, thar comes the blog!” But, don’t worry. This blog is mostly friendly, but does contain all of the posts on the site. If you’re looking for the latest Pacific Northwest blog posts or want to find out what people are reading here right now, look early on in the page, or abandon ship bound for the homepage. But if you want to wade through the murky depths of all of the increasing number of articles on this site, you can descend to the bottom.

Three Western Washington Ghost Tours To Haunt You

Are you a believer? It’s OK if you’re not. Ghost tours are fun, especially in October when the days are growing shorter and the leaves are falling. And good ones are also a bit of an (entertaining) history lesson. Here are three Haunted Tours in and (relatively) near Seattle to take this Autumn: Seattle, Port Gamble, and Port Townsend

Amidst Old Tombstones at Kirkmichael Trust Cemetery

The Kirkmichael Trust Cemetery in the Scottish highlands has done some serious restoration work, bringing old medieval tombstones into a restored church building for preservation and display.

We attended THING, Adam Zack’s (of Sasquatch! fame) new multidisciplinary music and arts festival at Fort Worden in Port Townsend. It included a varied lineup of entertainment and was worthwhile overall, with, we think a few learning experiences for next year if there is another THING coming.
