So off we went onto Skagit

We went out on a limb literally and drove about 90 mins each way to Skagit to view the blooming tulips.

When we first came here two years ago, Carol brought us there and it was really an impressive sight.

This time round, we decided to do it ourselves, printed out a brouchure with general driving directions, topped up the gas in Pamela, and off we went.

The weather was kinda nice, with some light rain, and mild sun. The rain did make quite a muddy walk in some areas, but it was good.

Most of the tulips were in full bloom, while some, like the Queen of the Nights, were still like bulbs.

After the drive round the tulip route, we went to look for FOOD! Again, without any ideas where we're going, we finally dropped by a restaurant that looked like it's specifically for senior citizens.

A Mom & Pop Restaurant in Skagit

Most of the customers inside are seniors, and Sharon and I both think that they have not seen Asians that common in Skagit.

The food was pretty good; the portion was just a bit too small for my liking, but the fries were amazing. Probably the best fries that i had EVER.
