Only One Day Like Today

Second Day of New Adventure

Filed under: Uncategorized — by onlyonedayliketoday @ 7:32 pm

Today we headed for Sequim, WA for their lavender festival!  There were lavender farms and lavender products to be purchased EVERYWHERE!

For lunch, Daddy and Kyle wanted to try the famous “The 3 Crabs” restaurant.   It is located in Dungeness,WA on the Strait of Juan de Fuca waterfront.  (Did you know that the Dungeness Crab was named after this little town?) 

They enjoyed quite a smorgeshboard of steamed crab, fish, clams, scallops, and shrimp.

Then we picked strawberries and rasberries at a farm there. 

Here the youngest pickers are getting the “lay of the land” and planning their strategy.

Then, Joseph gleans some strawberry picking tips from his biggest brother.

Ah, he’s going in for the pick!

Success . . . and to be sure, he figures he must taste-test it:)!

Here, Timothy is getting tips from his big sister, Valerie.

How does this one look?

Two strawberry-loving girls hard at work.

This was taken about mid-way through our picking extravaganza! 

And now we are back at the hotel, enjoying the “FRUIT of our labor!”

And swimming:)!

  2. Boy…Picking those strawberries must have been fun… knowing that you could pop one in your mouth at any time. Makes me think back on my school days when I would come home and pick fresh strawberries.

    That lavendar sure is pretty. Did it seem to draw any bees? Sure looks like you had a greeat time vacationing. Thanks so much for sharing your vacation. Much much much Love, Meemom
