|We are travelling south on highway 11 (green line) and saw the spectacular ocean shots in my post here.
|The drive was beautiful as we drove most of the way on Chuckanut Drive through this beautiful rain forest.
|This is the largest tourist stop on the drive where you take photos of the beautiful vistas.
|As we end our journey south on Chuckanut Drive we stopped in Burlington for a bite to eat before heading back on the freeway towards Whidbey Island.
|This was one of the first shots I took as we entered the town.
|You always know when you're in the USA as there is usually a flag outside someone's house or place of business.
|This looks like a wonderful shop. You can see the care and attention that has gone into keeping these historic buildings.
|This church caught my eye, so.....
|... I tried to get a good photo.
|Main Street of the town and more historic shops...
|This place sells ice cream and candy. I can imagine they've been incredibly busy this hot summer.
|It was nice to see some action on the waterfront. I don't know where the bridge leads.
|This shot is taken in the direction of the town of La Connor.
|This Inn comes up a lot in a google search when looking for accomodations in the area. Given this is a tourist town, I think it is overpriced but it is rated quite well by people who have stayed there.
|Leaving LaConnor and making our way back to the freeway for the turnoff to Whidbey Island.
|We are at the freeway about to turn left and head west.
I hope you enjoyed the quick tour of La Conner. It was a real whistle stop for us just so I could see the place. If you'd like to plan a trip there, you can find out much more information by clicking here.
