On our neighboring Bainbridge Island, The Mora Iced Creamery was recently named as the best ice cream in the U.S. by Food & Wine Magazine!  Located just off the ferry on Winslow Way, the creamery serves up made from scratch specialties such as lavender, rose petal and sabayon (Italian Marsala wine custard).  We didn’t need another reason to visit Bainbridge Island, but we’ll certainly be making a trip now!  Just a 35 minute ferry ride from downtown Seattle, Bainbridge Island is one of the best ways to experience Elliott Bay and the surrounding views.  On your way there, you get a great view of the Olympic Mountains and on the way back, an unbeatable view of the Seattle skyline.  On the island, you can rent bikes, walk around Winslow Way, or spend an afternoon in the beautiful gardens at the Bloedel Reserve.
