Adventure. La Conner

This is a hidden gem that is easily missed as it appears to be a little tiny town off the grid.

Traveling North on I-5 past Seattle, a short drive through gorgeous farmlands with amazing flowers, lands you in the quaint downtown. Along the way, you will find on your honor, flower and produce stands, where you insert cash or check into the box as you take the fresh from the field goodies.

Here’s where I got my Washington cherries, that did not disappoint.

Tom was wondering where I was taking him as we drove through farmland then pulled into the Wild Iris Bed and breakfast. We needed to walk after driving all day and so we strolled down the Main Street after checking in. his surprise at the end of the street was the ocean.

We had a lovely dinner on the water as it doesn’t get dark until 9pm. I had a delicious local beer and clam chowder and it was a glorious 70 degrees and sunny.

We brought our bikes and the next morning we got in a bike ride that needed our all terrain bikes. The homes were quaint and there were options to kayak, hike, shop or book spa treatments. For those like me who love nature, don’t mind cloudy days and love the history of quaint towns well maintained since the 1800s then La Conner may be on your bucket list. I also learned from here you can take a boat to tour the San Juan Islands.
I think the next time I return to La Conner I want to bring my mom in March when the daffodil and tulip festival is in full swing.
I can’t wait to discover more of this amazing area. Not afraid to admit I am a granola loving adventure nurse who is courageously looking up, reaching out and obeying where God leads.
