    I used to live just across the border there, near Abbotsford. I'll be in the area again near Christmas. Maybe I should check it out!

    I have heard about LaConner. I will have to get there sometime. We have friends in Seattle. I guess we'll have to visit again.

    That is a great museum and I highly recommend it and the town to anyone in the area or visiting the part of WA. Happy Birthday and glad you had such a fun day!

    I haven't been to LaConner since I was a kid. Used to go smelt jigging on the river with a friend and her parents. Would love to go up to visit the quilt museum. Sounds like it hasn't changed much since I was a kid.

    I grew up in WA state. When I left for Oregon we were living near Civic Field in Bellingham. We also lived on Alabama Street. It was fun being a teenager in that town.

    Happy Birthday and so glad you had a great time. I loved La Conner many years ago when we visited there. Way overdue to go there again.

    Being from Bellingham, it is just gorgeous up there.
    the towns in the LaConner area are great for those who love to "scavenger".

    Small shops, beach walking, gathering seafood and the people.

    A quilting I will go......

    I am so envious! When my mother and I lived in Bellingham, LaConner was one of our favorite places to go. It is such a unique area with a special atmosphere I haven't found anywhere else. Would have loved to see the quilts. Wish I still lived there, although Oregon is nice too.
    Enjoy!
