You lovers of wooden boats,
you sailors and boat wrights,
paddlers and rowers.
You lovers of mountains,
of rivers that reach to the sea.
This is where bike rides go forever.
Where brassy steampunk
comes alive and where
history echos from the past
tempting you to go back ...
if only you could find the secret portal.
Where craftsmanship and
arts are part of daily life.
Where healing arts
are the norm;
body's and spirits are renewed.
And where the deer are
so smart they use the crosswalks.
Come savour, you aficionados,
our slow foods;
the result of respectful
and thoughtful farmers and chefs.
Where world class ciders,
brews and wines
are here for you to discover and enjoy.
You must come and witness a special magic moment. The moment at the end of day,
just before violet darkness falls. A moment of grace when the first stars become visible
and the anchor lights on the sailboat masts blink on and these shimmer and reflect on a canvas
of a thousand shades of impossible blue; sky and water connected by the twinkling light.
This best enjoyed with good friends and an adult beverage on the deck of Sirens overlooking the bay.
And come for the slowest food of all; local, craft, micro-batch bean-to-bar chocolate made from heirloom and fine-flavor cacao beans deliberately direct sourced from courageous and careful farmers from cacao growing regions around the equator. Created here in Port Townsend with care, vigilance and reverence with only one other ingredient of pure organic cane sugar - just enough to ease the bitterness and show off the flavors of this very special cacao.
