WHAT A GREAT TIME WE HAD!



My friends, Fran, Cheri and myself did a lot of going - all over hill n' dale! First we went to plant sales with another friend, Hilga, then off to gift/antique shops and thrift shops and yard sales. We took a trip out to Snohomish Country to see the Tulip Festival, how beautiful! Lots to eat, lots of joking and laughing, and a lot of sweet friends! Here are some of the pictures:

A walk on the beach, found lots of shells, driftwood, and sand dollars!

We sure had fun in the stores!

The tulip fields - just beautiful!

At a place called Roozen Gaade - had a wonderful display and shop!

In La Conner, Wa. we visited Bunnies by the Bay, a place to buy children's clothes and other cute creative stuff! I like to go just to be inspired by the decorating!

All the rooms are hand painted with lovely murals, and in order to take pictures, an employee has to be in the picture!

I had to take this picture, the island has lots of farming! So peaceful!

Whidbey Island and the state of Washington is such a picturesque place!
I have lots more pictures, but little space here! Next post will have some pictures of some funny signs. When I got home and onto the computer, I found that I received an award from Mona! Well, I was going to put a picture of it here, but my new computer will not let me post any more pictures for some reason! Darn! I will have to put it into the next post I guess?!?!? I don't want to keep gripeing about the new computer, so I'll just say "have a great week" to all of you!

Hi, Marilyn -
I'm so glad you had a good time on your trip. It's so special to spend time with your girlfriends! You were in my home county - I was born in Snohomish County but I only lived there until I was nearly five. But my roots are there and I love the beauty of that area. It wouldn't bother me at all to move back someday.
