With April nearing its end, it’s time to visit another quaint town in Washington State, and for March, the quaint town of Snohomish, founded in 1858, was the winner. I’ve been to Snohomish numerous times to their wonderful parks and playgrounds, but I’d never visited the historic downtown (listed on the National Register of Historic Places). What a treat! First Street is filled with plenty of antique shops, eateries and taverns to keep you busy for a full afternoon.
We were lucky to have a day filled with sunshine, so we wandered in and out of shops, spoke to friendly owners and enjoyed the buzz of a beautiful spring day.
Of course, if you’ve heard of Snohomish, you’ve heard about the need to eat some pie, so my dear friend, Cicely and I decided we should probably do what everyone suggests…
I picked the Strawberry Rhubarb, since my great-grandmother and mom used to bake this for me.
After our pie, we returned to the streets and I continued taking photos of eye-catching signs. All in all, it was a truly fun day!
To see Cicely’s take on our adventure, head on over to Rusted Van Photography. Her pie looked much prettier than mine. 🙂
