Girlfriend Getaway Part 1

Last week, my teacher friend Meg and I decided to take advantage of her spring break and hit the road for a little R&R. We headed south across the border into Washington state, and then drove west to La Conner, a wonderful little town, where we stopped for lunch. This beautiful quilt was on display in the restaurant, so of course, we had to get the picture.

We drove past fields of daffodils in bloom--a sure sign of spring.

La Conner's picturesque main street is filled with wonderful shops.

We discovered this hidden garden behind the Hotel Planter.

Complete with a raven sculpture.

Look at how walls of this building surround the tree.

And isn't this a great idea for a flower display?

From La Conner, we drove south and caught the ferry to Port Townsend, a beautifully preserved historic town on the northeast tip of the Olympic peninsula.

There, we spent the night at the quaint Blue Gull B&B.

And woke the next day ready to resume our travels.
(To be continued).


  1. What a wonderful way to spend the day.


  2. How fun this sounds! I'm keeping tuned in for the rest of the tour.

  3. J'aime beaucoup votre blog .
