11 Most Romantic Things To Do On Bainbridge IslandSusan Wiggs
compiled by Susan Wiggs

1. Watch the sunrise from Fay Bainbridge State Park.

2. Breakfast options-Café Nola-white table cloths, good coffee, luxurious food. Or if it's a beautiful day, grab some pull-aparts from Bainbridge Bakers and take them down to Waterfront Park and share. If it's a Saturday, buy fresh berries at the Farmers Market.

3. Recreation! Rent a two-person kayak and paddle around, even out to Blake Island if you're feeling brave. Or get a Laser sailboat or dinghy and explore; you'll probably encounter sea lions. Seeing wildlife up close together is inherently romantic. Landlubbers can bike along the south end, taking in Fort Ward State Park to watch the boats go by. Romantic walks depend on your mood and fitness level: It's an easy beach walk from Lynwood Center toward Point White and back, offering matchless views of Mount Rainier and a bird-watcher's dream at the estuary. Or you could hike a secluded woodland trail, like Peters Trail and not run into a soul. If you have access to a horse, go for a ride in the Grand Forest. (Good luck with that, sez Jay.) For the athletes-try a round of golf or tennis at Meadowmeer followed by a nice drink on the deck.

4. Get a picnic lunch from the New Rose Café at Bainbridge Gardens, or at Metro Market take-out and share at one of the shady picnic tables at Strawberry Hill Park.

5. Go for a stroll in the Bloedel Reserve. A really long stroll, and don't take any shortcuts. Nobody will think less of you if you engage in naughty role play in the main house or the Japanese tea house. And do not ask me how I know this.

6. Stop in at Bainbridge Gardens because after Bloedel, you are going to want to bring home a fancy plant like Nightshade. Then go shopping along Winslow Way-don't miss the original jewelry creations and vintage collection at Gilbert Thomas. At Eagle Harbor Book Company, you'll find signed books from every one of the island's 13,447 (and counting) famous authors.

7. Get dual massages at Bay Massage and Skincare.

8. Most romantic restaurant, bar none: The Four Swallows. Lovely setting in a historic house, gorgeous food and wonderful service.

9. Catch an indy film at the historic Lynwood Theatre and afterwards, stop in at Treehouse Café for coffee or a nightcap.

10. Stargazing at Battle Point is a must.

11. Romantic places to spend the night abound. Some of my favorites include the Bainbridge Island Beach Cottage, Harbor View Guest House, the Captain's House.
