summer trip to sequim // personal
Our trip started, of course, with the four hour drive north. It definitely goes by a lot faster when Peter’s driving! One of my favorite parts of the drive is passing over the Tacoma Narrows bridge. I’ll never understand how the build these things!
We met my parents at a restaurant just outside of Sequim called Fat Smitty’s. They hang decorated dollar bills from the ceiling and walls, and donate the money collected to the Boy Scouts. You can read all about it here! Of course Peter & I added our dollar to the mix.
While we were in Port Townsend (one of my favorite towns) we visited Bergstrom’s antique auto store. I’m pretty sure Peter was in heaven!
Later in the evening, we went to Purple Haze Lavender farm. Sequim is known for its lavender, and I can see why! I ended up taking a bunch of photos of my mom and dad, which you can check out here. My dad even took a few shots of Peter & I together – I was so happy to get some cute shots of us since I am always behind the camera!
We spent the next day at the Olympic Game Farm. It’s a home for injured and sick animals, as well as animals that have retired from being stars of movies and TV shows! It was so awesome to have the animals running around us, and I loved being able to feed them through the window… even though the buffalo really freaked me out!
On the way home we got stuck on the Hood Canal drawbridge for a while. When we finally got moving again, we passed three whole miles of stopped cars!
The Tacoma Narrows looked especially pretty during sunset on the way home!
Thanks so much Peter for coming along with me on this trip, and thanks Mom & Dad for hosting us! Can’t wait till we can do it again! (:
