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.
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.
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.
