We are still staying in Anacortes, Washington at the Pioneer RV Resort. We decided there is so much to do in the area we are not ready to leave. Today we drove about 15 miles from our campsite to what is called the Chuckanut Scenic Drive. It is a 21 mile drive through the valley and into the mountains. It is the only path where the Cascade Mountains meet the sea. Along the way you see everything from potato farms to Alpaca farms.
One of my favorite stops was the Japanese Chuckanut Gardens. It was absolutely beautiful! I have added a lot of pictures for you to see. We also visited a Shellfish Farm, a first for us for sure. :-) They had every kind of shellfish you could think of in huge bins, fresh right out of the water.
We also had a quick stop at the Larrabee State Park. I think it's great that all the State Parks are free here. It was another fantastic park and worthy of a longer visit next time we are in the area. The drive ended in a town called Fairhaven. It had over 25 restaurants to choose from plus a very nice beach. We had a wonderful lunch at the Mexican Restaurant and then headed back down the scenic 21 miles. I would highly recommend this drive to anyone visiting this area. We enjoyed it much and hope you enjoy! More later from Washington.
