A Great Escape…

… just 17 miles from home. I’d recommend a leisurely morning or day in Snohomish, Washington.


Strolling along 1st street you can see the Snohomish river. There are a good variety of shops to stroll through and eateries to choose from. Antique shops are in abundance but there are some fun country stores and clothing shops, too.


We started our morning at the Cabbage Patch Restaurant and had a very nice breakfast.


This post is going ruby on me so I’ll have to link up with Ruby Tuesday with Mary at Work of the Poet!


After breakfast we strolled through some shops and along 1st street.





We didn’t make it out of town without a major purchase. We found a hutch for our kitchen that was delivered on Sunday. I’ll show it later in the week. Hope Spring is showing up wherever you are and I suppose if you are in the other half of the hemisphere you’ll be welcoming Autumn! Enjoy.

Click on over to Work of the Poet to see more Ruby Tuesday!

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

  1. Hi Ellen,
    Gosh, I haven’t been here in a long time.
    Lovely post!
    I really would like visiting that primitive country store and the river views are wonderful. Looks like a pleasant place to enjoy the day.

  2. What a lovely place! Ruby style abounds, from the modest city hall to Betty Boop! Breakfast of jam and fresh biscuits is a wonderful way to start, the shoe store great in neon and to top off a fine day, drinks and eats at the Cabbage Patch – the end of a perfect day!

  3. We visited Snohomish last spring and just loved it. Did you get into that multi-storied antique mall? I can’t believe that I got out of town without buying a thing.

  4. Mmm the biscuits and jam look yummy.

    I’m still laughing over your card lower down!

    Fun to catch up on all your doings lately – your 60th year shines!

  5. What a darling little town Ellen B. There’s so much to see and do in Washington and I so enjoy getting to travel along the road with you…thanks!

    😉 cori g.
