It’s a short drive, just west of Port Townsend in the little town of Gardiner. Gardiner sits on the edge of Discovery Bay and in view of Vancouver Island (Canada), and on a clear evening you can see the lights of Victoria. But even on a cloudy and rainy day, just like when we went, you can’t miss the trolls. They’re everywhere, and doing everything. Fenceposts are carved like trolls, they sit in gardens, they are framed by gates, and they even hold up a livestock barn!
And just in case you might be staring at the scenery as you drive….
And, a short Crabbing Update, we tried our luck off of the much larger pier in front of the Marine Sciences Center in Port Townsend. The water there is almost 50 ft. deep, which should produce larger (and more) crabs. However, whether it just wasn’t our day or the crabs were taking the day off, all we got was a very large SeaStar, a cousin to the StarFish. This isn’t what you want to catch!
