Strange Brewfest

Stewart had to work on Saturday and I was feeling much more like myself again, so I decided to take the ferry over to Port Townsend and meet up with my family. They were there for the ninth annual Strange Brewfest, a crazy local festival featuring tons of local brewers and musicians. Our family has property in Port Townsend and we've been going there since before I was born, but this was definitely a new experience for me!

Port Townsend is a teeny tiny, sleepy town, and most often when we visit we spend our time hanging out at our campsite, hiking, walking on the beach, or wandering around the eclectic downtown shops with a half dozen other tourists. But this time when I arrived I was shocked to see that the town was absolutely packed! I actually had to look for a parking spot and the sidewalks, bars, shops and restaurants were all crowded with festival-goers. Stew would have loved it, I was really sad he wasn't there.

I didn't actually spend much time in the actual Brewfest because it was super loud and crowded. Instead we created a little pub crawl for ourselves, walking around downtown and having a beer or a meal here and there at a bunch of different little pubs and restaurants.

It was a fun, short little trip and it only took me about two hours to get there from our house, including the ferry ride. I always love spending time with my family, no matter what we're doing.

On Sunday Stew and I did a bunch of boring chores. We went up and checked on the house (a guy was there laying tile in the master bath... so pretty!) and then headed to Best Buy to look at some TVs Stew has his eye on for the living room and media room. We also took a tour of Gold's Gym in Issaquah and were pleasantly surprised! It's huge, has all the equipment Stew is looking for, and has tons of group fitness classes for me. We're still going to check out a couple other places, but this could potentially be a great choice for our new gym.

How was your weekend?


  1. i'm glad you found a good gym! And that's so exciting about the house, can't wait to see more!

  2. That's great you found a potential gym! I've started taking group classes and love them - really keeps me motivated!

  3. My weekend was pretty quiet. I went up to visit my parents, hang out with the dogs, and eat free food. :) It was nice to relax.

  4. Oh wow! That Brewfest sounds great! My hubby would love it!

  5. My future mister and I used to go to the gym together. I think it's been years since we went to the gym but we do plan on looking around for a gym to enroll in so that we could look perfectly fit for our wedding. Sounds like you had a pretty great weekend with your family. Times spent with family is always a lot of fun no matter what the activity and where it is spent.

  6. I asked my boyfriend to come to the gym with me but he wouldn't lol
