Lavender festival :: part 2

I finally decided to get some more photos up from my trip to the Olympic Peninsula and the lavender farms near the town of Sequim.
This was such a nice little 2 day outing, I highly recommend it to anyone that's never been there.
The area itself is said to be in a 'banana belt' as far as the climate is concerned, and has lots of pretty scenery all around considering the Olympic mountains are on one side and the Strait of Juan de Fuca is one the other.
Have a look at the website to get some details.

The first part of the post was here, where the majority of the photos are, but I still had some I wanted to post.....hence part 2

Day 2 we started out at the Cedarbrook Farms. It is the location of the Bell House Gift Shop, which  is housed in an historic 100 year old farmhouse. This home was built by John Bell, who came to Sequim in the late 1800's from Scotland. He is reported to have been the first white settler in the area. Stunning views of the Straits of Juan de Fuca and Mt. Baker can be seen from the home.  Here's a shot of it below. It now houses the gift shop.
