This morning I started the three hour journey from Fairhaven, Bellingham to Whistler. I was driving along and saw a sign that said historic La Conner. I decided to check it out and was so glad I did. It’s along the coast and when you leave highway 5 you are just driving past all these farms. Then all of a sudden you come upon this beautiful little town. There were all these great shops and restaurants. It was the port a long time ago and one of the oldest towns in Washington State. I walked around for about two hours. I had read about he Sea to Sky Highway and it was everything people said it was. It took me awhile to get through Vancouver. I stopped off at these stops along the way to take pictures and to just appreciate the scenery. I stopped off at Porteau Cove and Brandywine Falls. I also stopped off at the Sea to Sky Gondola. There was still snow on the mountains and it was so green. I checked into my hotel at Whistler and then drove around the town to see what was there. I drove to Rainbow Park and walked around and then drove to Alta Lake. It is really beautiful up here. The rest of the night I spent walking around Whistler Village.
