BLUE HERON, Union, WA
By Paula Tyner
First printed January/February 2014 Edition

I love the Pacific Northwest and lived in Washington State most of my adult life. With retirement, my husband and I have moved away. Now, I visit the PNW.

In October, 2012, I exchanged into Blue Heron in Union, WA, a Silver Crown resort by RCI standards. I loved my two-week stay there. Union is on the Hood Canal, a 16-mile, 25-minute drive from Belfair, which is 15 minutes from Bremerton, WA. Need I say that a car is essential for the area? Sea-Tac airport is several hours away by car or by ferry and car.

The resort is not new. It is more like a comfortable well-loved shoe. The spacious units have two beds and two baths, multiple TVs, free Wi-Fi, a full kitchen, and a fireplace. The units are privately owned, so each has its own décor. My living room looked out on the Hood Canal. My second unit also had a deck with a view.


The grounds are quite nice. Recycle bins are available. When I was there, a pool renovation was in progress. A sky-bridge walkway leads to a private beach. Several evenings, I saw deer on the resort grounds.

Parking is adequate. A for-pay washer and dryer are available.

PLAN AHEAD

The nearest grocery is in Belfair, so plan ahead. Cellphone reception at the resort is spotty. I learned to stop at the Belfair Safeway to make calls.

The “office” is a small affair, but it has a book exchange and a towel exchange, and one can purchase presto logs there to burn in the fireplace.

Everyone on the staff was helpful and really nice. I called several times before my trip for information. The staff members know the area and can
offer tips and directions.

From Blue Heron, one can drive to Shelton, Olympia, the Olympic Peninsula, Gig Harbor, Poulsbo, Seattle, Tacoma, and the Pacific Coast. Buy a map or go online for directions to the places you want to visit. I carried my camera with me while driving around and found many wonderful sights to photograph.

In the immediate area, I loved Alderbrook Resort, a quintessential PNW resort. The restaurant prices are high for me, but thanks to the manager of Blue Heron, I discovered the happy hour specials for meals. My sister-inlaw and I hit a Friday evening happy hour and enjoyed the specially priced meals, not to mention the beautiful setting in the bar. Later, I met a friend for a lunch there.

I discovered The Union Square Deli, minutes from the resort, and loved its soup and sandwiches at reasonable prices. It also sells pizza. Another fun stop very close to the resorts the Cameo Boutique, a wine and gift shop.

FARTHER AFIELD

In Shelton, I love Lynch Creek Florist for coffee, gifts, and local ambience. The independently owned bookstore in Shelton, Sage, is among a dwindling number of such establishments. An old restaurant favorite had closed, so a friend and I found a new place for lunch, The Strip Steakhouse downtown on Railroad Avenue.

Olympia is a long-time favorite with much to do. One of my treats was to visit The Olympia Farmers Market, an excellent venue for fresh produce and other handcrafted foods and items. My friend treated me to the excellent Lemongrass Restaurant in downtown Olympia.

Poulsbo offers a charming downtown and waterway. My favorite stop there was The Central Market, a grocery market with a serious deli where I enjoyed the squash soup. Further north is Port Gamble, with lovely vistas and a sweet little downtown area.

As mentioned above, one could range far afield. It all depends on how you want to spend your time. I think hanging at the resort for a week would also be very nice and relaxing. Suit yourself. That is the beauty of timeshare.
