We took Nancy and Christina up to Sequim for this year's Lavender Festival, and it was the best weather we'd had yet. I'm still sifting through my photos, so these will have to do.
We made our way to our rental home in Sequim on Friday night, and woke up plenty early to explore on Saturday. The second place we stopped had a nice u-pick (with a military deal that Catherine couldn't pass up!). She picked her basket and then I put her basket on a bench in the lavender field for some photos. This has potential.
We decided to catch sunset up on Hurricane Ridge in the Olympic National Park. Unfortunately Ian got sick which made the time there not terribly enjoyable. The sunset was still pretty, and plenty of deer were walking around to include a little baby fawn still in spots.
The next day we explored another lavender farm at Leah's request. We were all so glad that she wanted to go because this was the prettiest show by far. They had a couple of acres of lavender, but also plenty of wild flowers and poppies that really contrasted nicely with the lavender.
Whoever owned the farm thought of everything, and included these giant colorful hats for people to walk into the fields and get their photos taken with. So I lined up 3 generations and took some photos. Enjoy!
