We left home for our annual fall vacation last Monday – plan: to thoroughly enjoy the Cascade Loop in Washington State. Not too far from home, but far enough to be ‘away’.
Crossing the border, we stopped at Burlington for a couple of nights, first to stock up with groceries – and for me to get out to Anacortes to a couple of quilt shops (more about that in another post).
Heading east on Wednesday, we actually got into the Loop – and shortly after, found this delightful little chapel:
It’s called Church in the Wildwood – and we took a few moments for some peaceful meditation.
Teeny tiny, but a great stop for a little break on the road – I just love finding these!
Our next stop was at a bridge over a Gorge in the Skagit River – complete with waterfalls and a dam:
It was a loooooong way down
Don’t you just love where cameras can take you!
We stopped to admire the views at Diablo Dam:
And arrived at Winthrop – restructured in the early ‘70s to reflect the West of about 1900.
On our way we saw this mama and baby crossing the road:
They didn’t stay around long for this photo op!
We’re now 5 days into our vacation, only 9 more to go – can hardly believe it!
Happy sightseeing! Blessings, Peg
