I thought I would let you know that Mr. Squash and I are on the road for a few days. Sasha and Gracie May are being looked after by their pet nanny, but we already miss them terribly!
We've come over to the Washington Peninsula just ahead of the annual Sequim lavender festival. We didn't know it was going on until we tried to make reservations and found it pretty tight! However, we landed at a most wonderful bed and breakfast half way between Sequim and Port Angeles. It's called the George Washington Inn. The inn was built by the innkeepers and is an exact replica on the outside of George Washington's home, Mt. Vernon. Well, we were actually told he didn't have a portico out front, but it was added as a necessity because of the weather here.
This is the back which is on a bluff directly over the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Directly across the way is Victoria, B.C. (I'm not able to edit these photos on this computer, so I apologize for the darkness.) This morning at breakfast we watched several bald and golden eagles play on the thermals coming off the bluff!
The Inn also has their own lavender fields and participates in the festival! This is the view from our second floor room! The mountains are the Olympics.
This morning the sky had mostly cleared and I got a better photo looking out from the front porch of the Inn. The house on the left is the lavender gift shop, and to the right is their lavender field.
We've had a nice time exploring the area here. Next post I'll show you what we did today!
