Strawberry Fields Forever
As mentioned in my previous post, Wee Teck & family have joined the gang here.

Moodyone suggested to bring them to a lavendar farm and a strawberry farm, so there we went.

Lavender Farm

Wee Teck's wife, Lai Ling, was pretty handy with the flowers, and helped Moodyone to prune a bunch of lavenders that she was planning to bring home. There was also a unique lavender ice cream and sorbret. Not too bad indeed.

The weather was really fine that day, and i think it helped to ease the new relocated family to the area here. It felt almost Singapore-like during that week.

We then moved further up north to a strawberry farm.

You could actually smell the fragrance of fresh strawberries in the air! The kids, and the aduits, all enjoyed the self-picking of the strawberries.

The kids, epsecially, took on a contest to find the biggest of berries haha.

Sharon sneaked a bite of a freshly picked strawberry...

At the end of the day, we got about a total of 12 pounds of strawberries, with the majority for myself and Sharon. Three pails of them... Just take a look at our "bloodied" hands.

Here's a photo of Moodyone taking a photo of some kind of flowers.. not sure what indeed.

Hi.

It is in the Skagit County, along I-5 North exit 221 or something.

http://www.skagitsun.com/ might be a good place to start.
