Tulip Time!

Family, TravelcarlaComment

Headed out to Skagit Valley AGAIN this past weekend!  The tulips are in full bloom!  We actually had  beautiful sunny weather!  What?  It was in the high sixties, and gorgeous!  We couldn't have asked for a better day.  We headed over to Roozengaarde Farm, paid 5 dollars for parking and hit the fields!  We arrived there in the morning, and I am so glad we did!  The crowds started piling in and traffic was a bit hairy, right around lunch time!  I have to say that that the farms themselves, do a great job of directing traffic, and helping you find a place to park.

After touring the fields, we headed over to La Conner to check out our friend Doug's new art gallery. Doug Bison makes beautiful bronze sculptures.  It was AWESOME!  He has the perfect building to display his Northwest Fine Art.  It you are ever in the area, you should check it out.....Blackfish Gallery.

After visiting for a bit, we walked around the little touristy town of  La Conner, checked out some shops and bought some ice cream cones!  You always have to buy an ice cream cone on a sunny day, especially if you are a Washingtonian!  HA! HA!  All in all, it was an incredible Sunday.  So glad to be outside, enjoying our weather. Here are a few pictures I snapped of the tulips. If you haven't been before, be sure to get the Skagit County Tulip Festival on your bucket list!

Happy Spring!
