Last weekend, we decided to take a day trip up to Sequim, WA for the Lavender Festival. It was about a 2 hour drive, but it was totally worth it. There were Lavender farms spread out across the town with all types of Lavender scented and flavored goods for sale.
Sequim is a very unique place because it stays sunny and arid throughout the year due to its position at the downwind base of the Olympic Mountains. This placement results in a meteorological phenomenon known as a "rain shadow” and therefore makes it the perfect place to grow Lavender.
After spending almost a full day there, picking our own Lavender, and sampling a few cups of Lavender lemonade, we deemed it a successful trip and made our way back home.
