On Saturday we all went on a little trip just north of here. La Conner is a pretty little town. They have art stores, restaurants and Bunnies by the Bay. Which is a wonderful place. They handcraft bunnies and their friends and all sorts of accessories to go with them. I love the shop. It is now shops. They have expanded. I like it when a place I enjoy is doing well.
This is an out door sculpture. It is on a dock.
Lon had most of the cherry milkshake! He felt much better after lunch. After a good lunch we went to Anacortes. We drove over the bright orange bridge, it is called the Rainbow Bridge. In Anacortes, we stopped by Causland Park. It was built in 1918 as a World War 1 Memorial. It is made up of different colored rocks.
There is a park behind the pavilion it is lovely. Nice and green.
We looked at the little map we had of town and saw a Mt. Erie. It had a road to the top. 1270 feet to the top of the mountain. It is the tallest spot in Skagit County. 360 degree views of the county, and on clear days Mt. Baker and Mt. Rainier. This was not a clear day. Nonetheless, it was spectacular. I want to come back when the tulips are in bloom, that would be an amazing view of the fields from up there!
This is the monument marking the top of the mountain.
Mt. Erie lived up to what we read about it. Everyone had a wonderful time up there.
