Bellingham for the weekend

In celebration of my best friend’s 40th birthday, we headed off north to Bellingham. I call this our “almost home” because this is where I really thought we would end up. In addition to my bestie living here, it’s a college town, it has music and culture, beautiful Bellingham Bay in the front and Mt. Baker keeping a watchful eye in the background.

We did have a beautiful sunset tour of Bellingham Bay, but honestly, for the weekend, friends gathered at a house close to a city park to eat, drink and be merry.

One day we stopped at Taylor’s Shellfish situated along the winding Chuckanut Drive and purchased about 5 lbs. of oysters for grilling and mussels for steaming. Thankfully, Josh and Dave provided their shucking and grilling skills. It was the perfect end to a delicious, beautiful weekend.
