Exploring Washington – Daffodil Fields & Oyster Farms

Hi there! You found Inspired Taste’s adventurous side. You probably know about us (Adam and Joanne) because of our recipes. To recharge and find recipe inspiration we love to travel. It doesn’t matter how far away it is — this time, we stayed close and took a day trip.

Here’s where we went…

Adam Looking at Puget Sound Near Bellingham

We took a drive out of Seattle (our home) towards Bellingham — a small town not too far from the Canadian border. It only took an hour or so.

Skagit Tupli Fields 2

First, we stopped at the Skagit Valley flower fields. We went in March so the daffodils were in full bloom. There were so many fields of yellow. (Tulips bloom around here in April – here’s a map of flower bloom times to help you plan your visit).

We were both caught up with the view. Here’s Joanne taking a picture for our Instagram profile.

Joanne-Peaceful-at-Teddy-Bear-Cove

After eating a pretty amazing pulled pork sandwich at Cafe Rumba in Bellingham, we found a secluded beach called Teddy Bear Cove just outside of the city center. The photo at the top is from there, too.

There was a bit of walk down a steep bluff to get here, but it was worth it. This is a picture of Joanne having a moment taking it all in. Make sure you check out our map so you can find it!

Train Near Bellingham

Bonus: There are train tracks right next to the beach so if you are lucky you get to watch one pass by. Next time we are thinking about bringing a picnic. Some hummus, bread, and a few muffins would do the trick.

Adam at Taylor Shellfish

Before driving back, we stopped at the Taylor Shellfish farm store. Their oysters are amazing — we ate so many! The view is fantastic, too. They have a few restaurants in Seattle, but experiencing the oysters where they are actually farmed is pretty special. Highly recommended!

Skagit Tulip Fields

I just had to throw in one more daffodil photo — they really were beautiful. Hopefully, next time we catch the tulips!

    Great post! Loved seeing where you journeyed to and being able to see it outlined on the map was quite cool.
