…a short excursion or journey for pleasure.
Last Saturday the Bagdanov sisters had a jaunt in Washington state that took in Mt. Vernon, La Conner, Deception Pass, Coupeville, and Langley leaving the island by ferry back to the mainland in Mukilteo. Here are some photos of what we saw.
Daffodil Fields in Mount Vernon, Washington. Soon these fields will be full of tulips!
The Swinomish channel in La Conner.
Deception Pass Bridge between Fidalgo Island and Whidbey Island.
Deception Pass State park on Whidbey Island.
Saratoga Passage and Penn Cove in Coupeville on Whidbey Island where Penn Cove Mussels are famous.
Saratoga Passage in Langley on Whidbey Island.
Ready for our trip from Clinton on Whidbey Island to Mukilteo on the mainland.
On the mainland we stopped for dinner in Millcreek before we headed home to put our feet up!
Lots of posts about our sister weekend but they don’t happen very often and I have the need to document our time together. Treasured times at treasured locations in the state of Washington.
Linking up to Tuesday’s Treasures with Tom at The Backroads Traveler and J is for Jaunt with ABC Wednesday with Mrs. Nesbitt and Roger with the ABC Team.
In 1869 John S. Conner purchased the trading post on the Swinomish Channel and named the area in honor of his wife Louisa Ann Conner and that’s how La Conner got its name.
After we mucked about in the fields of daffodils my sisters and I drove a few minutes away to La Conner for lunch and a little shopping.
We chose Nell Thorn on the channel with good food and nice views.
Lana, Kathy the youngest and oldest and me and Vera in the middle.
We each chose something different for our lunch and everyone enjoyed their choices.
Whew! Happy my sisters were here last weekend instead of this weekend as we had quite a wild Sunday. Our power was out for 13 hours and we were happy to wake up to electricity again. Schools in our area are cancelled today as 85,000 are still without power. Trees were down and some of the trees brought down power lines, too. Here’s our light sources from last evening…
Hope you all have power today and are enjoying the light!
