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.
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!
