La Conner

My mother-in-law, Janet, arrived from the UK last Wednesday for her annual visit.  I foresee a few fun day trips in my near future!  Today we went to La Conner, had a walk around and had a fabulous lunch.  Even the child joined us for the outing (like he had a choice, hehe)!

Janet doing the “wiggle,” because the art statue behind her was called “The Big Red Wiggle.”

La Conner is about 45 minutes from where I live and a very small town.  Very artistic. Great culture.  Great scenery.  The Swinomish Channel runs right along side of the town, so it has some great waterfront views.

Rainbow Bridge:

Neighborhood house in the shape of a boat (in blue), although you can’t really tell from this view.

I stepped out in the middle of the road for this one because, hey, why not:

Old, old, old cabin (La Conner was settled in 1867):

A little farmer’s market:

A lovely little tea shop:

And, finally, lunch at La Conner Brewery (we find the best food at breweries):

Tomorrow is the city of Bellevue… with Judy from New York’s own Chocolate Runs Judy!!  I can’t wait to meet her!!

    Hey Paula how are you? These are some great pics I thought I recognized the Rainbow Bridge, saw it when I went to visit Niagara Falls on the American side. One of my best friends lives in Rochester and she was telling me that she’s been across that bridge bunches of times. Hope your mother-in-law has a nice visit.

      Hi Steph!! I’m doing great, thank you!! Actually, this Rainbow Bridge is in Washington state and crosses the Swinomish Channel, although the two bridges look very similar, they could almost be twins, lol! And thank you! Yes, we’re having a great time with lots of laughs!

        Glad to hear you’re doing well. Uh oh. it didn’t occur to me that there was another Rainbow Bridge. I meant to Google the Swinomish Channel which I’m still going to do. Laughs are good-enjoy!!
