Spent the afternoon in Poulsbo, a cute town with a Norwegian Heritage

I was driving around this afternoon and ran across this cute town called, Poulsbo in Kitsap County of Washington State. The downtown area is very quaint with shop-lined streets in which you can stroll the boardwalk with views of Liberty Bay.  On a nice day it would be fun to rent a kayak to get a different look at the scenery.

I was pleasantly surprised to find a number of fine restaurants in the area, one of which I tried…Mor Mor Bistro serves up northwestern cuisine in a lovely setting right on the main drag.  I tried a Harvest Green salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette, Beets, Almonds, Goat Cheese topped with grilled salmon.  It was quite good!  I usually don’t do desert for lunch, but I couldn’t help myself as I walked by Sluys Bakery…they had their doors open waffling wonderful scents to the passerby.  I had some sort of apple pastry that was just outstanding!

Poulsbo has a strong Norwegian heritage that began more than 100 years ago. There are over 130 shops, restaurants, art galleries, bakeries, etc. in the the downtown area.  Interestingly, for many years Norwegian was the only language spoken by the citizens of Poulsbo.
