More Photos of La Conner (Blaine, WA)

I wanted to share more photos of La Conner.  We are in Blaine, WA and finally have decent WiFi for uploading photos.
We had to walk around town often to burn off the calories from all the delicious food we found to eat at the Calico Cupboard Cafe & Bakery. (sorry no photo)
Plus, this is a great place to window shop!  So many unusual art pieces from near and far.  I could have spent hours just looking in each shop.
Across the river is the Swinomish Indian Tribe Community.  They also own the land that our campground is located.
I just love a town that loved a strange looking dog so much that they have a statue of him and named the little square after him. 
Art work seems to be everywhere. In small squares and sidewalks....
on porches.....
and on old dock pilings
I fell in love with several old homes.  The wood work and paint colors are so inspiring!  I wish I could see the inside of the house in the photo below.
Okay, I had to have at least one photo of La Conner's famous bridge.
So, I will end my photo tour here for now.
On The Cutting Board
More Southwest Happy Campers in the making!  
I sort of let my needle get away from me on the peach one.  Lots of embroidery on that one!  Well, they are not going to get done if I stay on the computer, so back to the cutting board for more sewing!
Happy Quilting!
