Summertime is fun-time

Summer is a great time to visit Port Townsend.  Unlike our easterly neighbor, Seattle, we do not get nearly as much rainfall as they do. 

This is due to the "Rainshadow Effect" which involves rainclouds getting trapped on the western side of the Olympic Mountains. The rainshadow is the dry area on the side of the mountains opposite to the wind.

This makes for long, leisurely summer days and cool summer nights...
