Lavender

Posted on

On your trip to Port Townsend, we saw that there were many, many lavender farms in the area. Especially, up near Squeim. We visited a farm and their gift shop had almost anything you wanted with lavender in it! Soaps, lotions, foods, jams. It was amazing.

Well, if you are in Washington you just have to go to Pike Place Market. We drove to Bainbridge Island (about 36 miles from Chimacum). We drove onto the ferry and crossed Hood Canal to Pier 52. We stopped and ate lunch at Ivar’s. Yum! We were able to sit on the water side of the restaurant and watch other ferries coming in.

Seattle skyline in the distance. A beautiful day it was!

Then we walked I don’t know how many blocks – straight up – to Pike Place Market. What a blast this place is. Crowded of course, but so much fun.There are open fish markets, flowers everywhere, and so much more. What caught my eye was the pasta booth. All kinds of pasta made out of all kinds of grains and even chocolate!

Remembering our visit to the lavender farm, we bought a half pound of Lavender Fettuccine for $5. Yes, expensive but what the heck! I also bought a huge bouquet of flowers for $5.

Last evening I decided it was time to give our Lavender pasta a try. I have to say that it really didn’t taste any different from other pasta but it made for some pretty pasta on the plate!


Yes, we are still using the good china! Neither one of us wants to spend much time washing dishes!

Life is good. God is Jehovah Jireh, God our Provider.

    Maybe 10 years ago we also went to the Lavender Farm at Port Angeles with Robert and Myrtle. Now I heard from Dorana that they will not be going any farther than Vancouver as have several of Robin’s friends to visit right in Portland area so they will plan another trip to that area at another time I am sure Dale is busy in his work shop so did not watch any football and it looks good in his shop so he will keep busy. I was so happy you have met women friends to attend the church as know you have lots to give and always needed where ever you are. You made a hit here and I was glad you could share in Bible sturdy. Always glad to hear from you and your pumpkin idea for decorations sound great so keep busy in your crafts. Love, Mom
