U-pick Strawberries at Boxx Berry Farm

Image
On June 20th, we celebrated the Father's Day by going to Boxx Berry Farm in Ferndale, Washington to picked fresh, delicious, and sweet strawberries. It was nice and clear sunny blue sky, a little bit warm but a breezy day. We enjoyed our time picking. Overall, we picked about 9 lbs and maybe ate about xxlb (hmm who knows) while picking. Their price per pound is $3 really good for this freshly picked sweet strawberries.  The experience is priceless. I can't wait for their blueberries later on this summer and oh their beautiful u-pick flowers especially my favorite dahlias   Fresh picked sweet strawberries from Boxx Berry Farm Pretty nice and clear day with the beautiful view of Mt. Baker in the background.  A snow covered mountain that looks like a whipped cream covering my freshly picked strawberries. A happy Father He picked about 6 lbs and probably ate about 1 more pound while picking.  Alan enjoyed picking and eating delicious strawberries with his dad. He got his own bucket

What A Pleasant Little Road Trip Up to Mt. Baker

Our road trip to Mount Baker in the morning of June 9th was pleasantly Amazing. Even though we didn't get to see the mighty Mt. Baker due to the ice and snow still on the road, it was still a great trip up there. The weather was a bit chilly, cloudy, and rainy, but a nice little day drive overall. The road is kind of narrow and it get twisty the further up we go. It was a beautiful scenic drive. Getting There The drive to Mt. Baker - Heather Meadows Base Ski Area was about 58 mile one way. Our Trip started from downtown Bellingham then to Sunset Dr, and then to WA-542 all the way but we stopped at  Nooksack Falls  on our way up there. We also passed several small communities but only stopped just to get gas.  Mt. Baker is 10,781 ft. elevation can be seen all the way to Victoria, B.C., Vancouver, B.C., and all the down south to Tacoma on a nice clear day. It is an active glacier-covered andesitic stratovolcano in the Cascade Volcanic Arc and the North Cascades of Washington in the U

Amazing and Easy Visit to The Nooksack Falls on our way to Mt. Baker

Morning of June 9th, after we got our breakfast from Downtown Bellingham Washington, we took a little road trip up to Mt. Baker - Heather Meadows Base Ski Area. But on our way up there, we did a short stop and visited the Nooksack Falls. It is well worth the stop. The beauty of nature is amazing and it is a convenient stop when going up to Mt. Baker.  Nooksack Falls is about 43 miles from Bellingham. There is a good signage on the road and it was easy to spot. A short drive down to parking lot from WA-542 scenic highway.   We missed the small parking lot and drove to the other side of the bridge, a one way bridge. The parking lot is actually on left side just before the bridge and from the parking lot, it was a short walk to the right going to waterfall viewing area.  A beautiful stream flowing down to the Nooksack river. The water, trees, mosses, and ferns are all  spectacular. This view is on the right side of the road going down to the parking lot of Nooksack Falls. Amazing Nooksack

1 Day Adventures to the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State

From La Conner Thousand Trails RV & Camping Resort, we drove to Coupeville Ferry Terminal. We were on the standby lane and didn't get on the first Ferry but we got on the next one. But because of that, we were able to explore Fort Casey State Park. Here's the link to that adventure A Ferry Ride to Port Townsend From Coupeville  When we arrived at Port Townsend it was late in the afternoon so we decided to spend a night in the area. We drove to Port Angeles and checked in at the Riviera Inn. Nothing special with the Inn but it was clean, cheap, and it suffice our need for the night. The next day, we checked out early from the Inn, got our breakfast, then head up Hurricane Ridge Olympic National Park. We stopped at the Overlook-Victoria B.C. From there I made a reservation for the Ferry back to Coupeville. The Ferry was full until the 5:15pm sailing time, so I went ahead and made that reservations.  We had a nice drive up to Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center.  Here's the lin
