The best way to spend a sunny day on Bainbridge Island. The camellia walk and orchids are some of the finest I've seen. The moss woes appear trolllike, ready for the Hobbits to relocate to any day now!

The Reserve is open 10am to 4pm Tuesday thru Sunday. If you are in Seattle and limited on time, the Arboretum might be your better bet. If you want to experience the full western Washington experience, then a ferry ride... More
