Memorial Day weekend was also a very special somebody's birthday so I dragged him out of town on a secret birthday trip to celebrate.
My friend has the cutest little cabin up near Mt. Baker and so there we went. It was a lovely, lovely place and eerily quiet.
It's a short drive from Seattle but a whole other world. The people were friendly, the scenery was beautiful and the memories delightful. We drove up to the Mt. Baker Summit on Saturday, stopping at the Nooksack Falls.
We then headed back to the cabin where we watched movies until it was time for dinner. We headed into Glacier and had a lovely little meal at Grahams. When it came time to go to bed, I almost couldn't sleep because it was so very quiet. It's amazing the difference in sound between the country and the city.
Sunday morning brought treats at the Harvest Moon Bakery in Maple Falls while watching the cyclists in the Ski to Sea competition. We then drove home along Chuckanut Drive but that is a tale for another day. I think Scott had a very happy birthday weekend, well at least that is what he told me.
Happy Birthday Scottmon! I'm so happy to have celebrated it with you!
