Let's Take a Field Trip

There is small town on the Olympic Peninsula called Sequim.  Every year in July  they have a lavender festival.  We try to go up a few days before or after as there are lots of people at the festival itself.  There are many lavender farms that you can visit, the most famous is Purple Haze. I think I'll just let the pictures do the talking.

 Most farms have row after row of different varieties of lavender.

 How about sitting for a spell! It sure smells good!

Dry lavender anyone?


 I love the yellow and lavender combination.

 How about some lavender and white chocolate ice cream?

 The town is very close to the Straits of Juan De Fuca. It was a warm day and when we drove down here, we lost about 15 degrees!

This is the Dungeness  Light House.  It's a good thing my camera takes long distance photos  as the lighthouse is about 5 miles out on the spit of land. If you want to walk out here, you had better be sure to go at low tide! We haven't made this walk although, we do love a shorter walk on the spit.

I hope you enjoyed seeing this very pretty part of Washington!  Thanks for joining me today.  On Thurs. I will post my progress on the BBD design, "Away We Ride."  If anyone else would like to join our SAL, we'd welcome you!!

  9. We had camped in Squim many years ago. I recall we ate at a resturant that served Dungeness crab but I think that was in the town called Dungeness and the name was the Crab shack! It was many years ago and great memories.
    love all the lavender fields. love Annette
