Sequim, WA (+ more)
In July, we spent a week in Sequim, WA. During that trip, we also went to Neah Bay and Cape Flattery, and Victoria, Canada, but I'll post about that later. Today I'll include some photos from Sequim and the surrounding areas. (Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park, and Port Townsend). The above pic is a lavender field at Graymarsh Berry Farm. Sequim is known for their lavender and they have a Lavender Festival, which we were there for! (Below.) We bought a few lavender things, including lovely Lavender Caramel Sauce.
We went to Graymarsh Berry Farm and picked our own raspberries, above. We also saw a bald eagle while we were there. The next three pics are when our family hiked the Dungeness Spit; the longest sand spit in the US. We didn't hike the whole thing.
We enjoyed grilling some Sockeye Salmon and corn on the cob, above, and then enjoying the beautiful sunset from our little rental vacation cabin, below.
We met friends and had a lovely day at Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park. Breathtaking views; just amazing. I was too busy talking to take very many photos that day.
The three photos above are from Port Townsend. We visited their farmer's market, which was full of organic produce and breads and other cool things. My friend made the delicious strawberry shortcake. I liked it so much I made a nectarine version when we got home (will post that sometime later). Then, the last pic is delicious grilled salmon we ate while we were there. Obviously, I forgot to take a pic until it was mostly devoured. The pic below is of a sunset we enjoyed on a beach in Port Townsend.
