Trip to the Coast: Sequim

Last weekend the temperatures were so high we decided to catch one of the first ferries out of Edmonds and head to the coast for cooler weather. Once in Kingston we stopped at a breakfast spot (who happened to be out of alcohol! No mimosas for us, but delicious food), and drove straight to Sequim. Sequim is located east of Port Angeles, and just south of Victoria, B.C, only an hour’s drive from Kingston. Once in Sequim we stopped in at Purple Haze Farms to see fields of lavender. It smelled absolutely divine and we tasted lavender ice cream and lemonade. I picked up a few lavender plants to pot in our backyard as well. Then it was off to the Dungeness Spit!  It’s a stretch of land just off the shore that reaches 5 miles, and you hike through the forest to reach it. The breeze was nice and chilly and the sea air was so refreshing. We made it back to Lynnwood just in time for the sun to set and sat outside with an ice cold bottle of corona.
