Bellingham, Washington is again were I reside, and happen to have lots of pictures of, so I will ramble about it's great downtown area now. Take some time to take it all in. The above old court house allows for a great picture from almost every angle in town. Day or night. Although I sat on a cell phone in front of this building at three in the morning, and am pretty convinced the great building is haunted. Inside houses what I have heard is a great museum, but I never seem to be in the area when it is actually open. Several overly interesting museums can be found within blocks of this building. The large courtyard leads right to the bay if you keep roaming. There are also some great shops to explore along the way. Already thirsty? The newish Chuckanut Brewery has some great selections to choose from.
Just up from the old courthouse you run into woods and some nice trails. Explore down by the water. Hit the right time of year and you can see the massive Salmon in the fish ladders. Or pause to watch someone land one right out of the river. Find the statues or just sit on a bench for awhile and take it all in. The public Library is also just steps away.
