Fairhaven and Bellingham

Our family word for 2012 is explore!!

We live in this great place, and can't wait to explore every inch of it.  There is something about being out in the fresh outdoors, exploring new places, experiencing new things, and doing it all as a family.

Our first exploration for the new year was Fairhaven and Bellingham.

We drove up the 5, and got off at scenic Chuckanut Drive.  It wraps around the mountains, and has the most beautiful views of the water, and the San Juan islands.  We stopped first at Tedy Bear Cove.  The kiddos bolted from the car, and had so much fun running down paths, exploring the beautiful cove, climbing on rocks, and exploring caves and caverns.  I loved watching them enjoying this beautiful place we live in, and run and play in the outdoors.  Dave taught them how to skip rocks in the water, and the explorations were endless.



After that we had worked up quite an appetite so we drove into the nearby town of Fairhaven, for fish 'n chips in a double decker bus.  The kiddos meals also came with frozen yogurt that they serve in over 30 different flavors. 


With full tummies we loaded up and headed to Boardwalk Park in nearby Bellingham.  The kids had a blast running up and down the Boardwalk, and playing in the sand and shores beneath it.
