A Quintessential Rainy Day on Bainbridge Island

9:00 - 10:00 Warm up with coffee or tea, and a freshly baked breakfast sandwich, gooey cinnamon roll, or cake with sweet fruits and whipped cream at Storyville Coffee Company.

10:00 - 12:00 Even in the drizzling rain and heavy hanging fog, an easy going walk in the Grand Forest always spills over with pure magic. Enter from the trailhead off Day Road.

12:00 - 1:00 Savor a delicious lunch at the BIMA Bistro at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art. Swing by the Fletcher Bay Winery Tasting Room to drink some local flavors, bask in the light that comes in from their big, glass windows, and watch the rain as it’s outpouring shifts from mists to cascades.

1:00 - 2:00 Head next door to the museum and marvel at the latest art exhibitions, with styles ranging from contemporary to those rooted in tradition.

2:00 - 3:00 Discover new stories and reminisce over old favorites at the cozy Eagle Harbor Book Company.

3:00 - 5:00 Catch a movie at the Bainbridge Cinemas at the Pavilion in Winslow or Lynwood Theater on the south end of the island.

5:00 - 6:00 Dinner needs to consist of steamy noodles and creamy soups at Sawatdy Thai Cuisine, which will thaw any amount of cold from the day.

6:00 Lean into the ambiguous nature of this damp and mystifying weather, and take a long drive from Eagle Harbor Drive NE to Rockaway Beach Road NE to Blakely Avenue NE to NE Country Club Road. This route will loop you from the outskirts of Eagle Harbor to Blakely Harbor to the south end of the island. Relax, be curious, and take only back roads from here.
