We visited the Nelson Treehouse Company’s B&B Treehouse point, along with a couple of other in-the-tree locations (the Forest House, Free Spirit Spheres, and -- at least in spirit -- the treehouse at Doe Bay) in the Pacific Northwest. Here’s a lowdown on getting high (up in the trees at least) along with a listing of other treehouses in the PNW you can rent.

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

A Damn Fine Piece of Pie: Where to Eat Great Pie in Western Washington...

This post was written before the COVID-19 outbreak, but I decided to let it run for Pi day as scheduled. In Seattle, we're eating our Pie on Pi Day at home in Seattle -- but when things pick back up these are some great places to go. Put them on your calendar for PIE day, which is January 23. Whether it's Pi Day (in March) or Pie Day (in January) you're likely to see a lot of posts about pie. But any day is a good day for Pie. So we're weighing in on our favorite go-to pie spots in Seattle and western Washington State.

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.

Guillemot Cove Nature Preserve is one of my favorite Kitsap County day hikes, and great for kids (at least kids who will tolerate the uphill trek back from the beach). While you're there, visit the Stump House which (legend has it) was a hideout for an outlaw in the 1800s and would have been my clubhouse as a kid if it had been in my neighborhood.
