Up Lynden-Way - Day 3

Well, it's father's day and our third day up in the northern neck of the woods. The threatening clouds spit on us for a bit, but then by afternoon the sun was making a brief appearance - yay!


We started out with some breakfast in the historic Fairhaven district
what a lovely, little touristy place. 
The food was fabulous and the service better in this little 'hidden cafe'. 
Lox and a schmear...yummy!


A peek-a-boo view of Puget Sound from nostalgic Chuckanut Drive
Just beautiful.


The tide was waaaay out on Padilla Bay
We availed ourselves of the informative interpretive center, 
then stopped for some interesting pics.


Lake Padden was next on the list. 
We strolled for a bit along the waterfront amid the persevering joggers.


Finally, we decided to check out some local wineries - 
our favorite was Vartanyan Estate Winery in Bellingham. 
We tasted some incredible wines 
and even purchased some for later enjoyment. 
L'Chaim!



Tonite, it's out for a nice dinner. Tomorrow, it's heading for home.


Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, 
for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer. 
Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller 
and more of it can be taken in at a glance and a lack of harmony 
and proportion is more readily seen.
~Leonardo da Vinci
