Day 92: ‘Frow’ Rocks at the Old Ferry Landing

Harborview Drive Street End Looking for something to do that won’t break the bank? Good old fashion fun? Get that peaceful, easy feeling by ‘frowing’ rocks a the Old Ferry Landing in downtown Gig Harbor. Depending on your skill level, skipping rocks is also an option. My boys are at the “frow” rocks level, so skipping is for Dad at this point. I don’t know what it is, but there is something instinctually stimulating about ‘frowing’ rocks. It’s a simple, free, and relaxing activity for all ages and ability levels. To get there, head down Soundview drive until you hit the bottom of the hill (you’ll see the Tides Tavern), then take a right on Harborview Dr. to the end of the street. At the top, there is a view deck, but if you follow the path down to the beach (yes, there are signs warning against it), you’ll hang a left at the bottom to find a small patch of pebbled beach. If ‘frowing’ or skipping rocks isn’t your ‘gig’, there’s always nature appreciation 🙂If you stay straight and tuck behind the old building, you’ll see Sunset Beach…home to some of the coolest houses in Gig Harbor. The only drawbacks to these homes (some might argue that it’s more of a positive) is the lack of access and amenities. The only way to access these homes is by foot. On a side note, there is at least one of these Sunset beach Gig Harbor homes for sale right now. It’s considered trespassing on this side, but I don’t think they can jail you for peering around the old building (but don’t take my advice :). The beach is always fun and adventurous, and Gig Harbor has plenty of it. Life is good…in Gig Harbor.Harborview Drive Street-End (Old Ferry Landing)
