This past weekend, my husband, Ginger (our golden retriever) and I headed to Whidbey Island. While on the island, we frequently visit the Bayview Farmers Market whose vendors just keep getting better and better. Initially we visited the market to buy pies from the the “Pie Lady”. While we do still go to see her, we’ve branched out a bit as well.
This time we bought locally-made goat cheese, red carrots (aka “Purple Haze”) and a strawberry-rhubarb pie.
While we didn’t buy any sunflowers, I still snapped photos of the floral displays. The sunflower symbolizes late summer to me. After several beautiful weather days earlier in the week, on this day, the marine layer only started to wear off as we disembarked the ferry in Mukilteo. Fall is definitely in the air!
