After a long absence, I had lunch at The Old Mill Cafe in Carlsburg. The food was excellent. Their clam chowder is just the best. Carlsburg is a spot in the road between the town of Sequim proper and my house. Although the 200 census reports only 800 inhabitants, it does have a post office, a restaurant, an industrial park, and some small shops. It also has a rich history. The log mill, which closed in 1967, was important economic endeavor in this area. A Google search failed to produce a website dedicated to the history of Carlsborg. This surprised me. I have broken the rules and posted a second picture today of a stump in front of the restaurant. The stump was brought to the area from up in the mountains by a generous donor…and possibly a happy customer.
