A view of the Snohomish River, it doesn’t look as beautiful in January as it does in the summer, but with weather mild enough to take off my coat, I’m not complaining. Jean wore her SAVE THE DUCK jacket, a lovely shade of misty rose. I bought one too. It’s super soft, lightweight and warm. Best is that it’s also cruelty-free, hence, save the duck. Jean sells them in her store; they come in black, silver and turquoise too.
“PLUMTECH® is an innovative padding that comes from the need to create the softness of animal feather while keeping the advantages of thermal padding technology.” ~Save the Duck
I first discovered this charming little town while reading Jean’s blog.I added it to my list of places I’d like to visit while in Washington. It was just as I imagined it would be from Jean’s photos and description: small American town, perfect for a walk along the main street and browsing through the shops. 1st Street is lined with antique shops and unique boutiques from one end to the other.
Jean found this coat in The Queen Bee (made in Italy) and I bought one too. It will be perfect for springtime in Ontario.
Lunch at Grilla Bites was delicious, they have tasty vegan and vegetarian options.
Before heading home, we stopped in at Centre Public House for drinks, a nonprofit pub with proceeds going to the cause of your choice: wild life rescue, a local food bank, abused deaf women’s advocacy or homeless transition. Jean had wine, Doug had coffee and I had hot apple cider.
