Mount Vernon, Washington

Historic Downtown Mt, Vernon, WA

Mt. Vernon, Washington was our base for 9 days while we regrouped and prepared for the next part of our journey: Canada & Alaska.  Only 50 miles from the Canadian border, Mt. Vernon is located between the San Juan Islands in the Puget Sound to the west and the Cascade Mountains to the east.

Mt. Vernon proved to be a terrific site for everything we needed to accomplish.  In addition to the post office and banking facilities, the historic downtown was lined with boutiques, antique shops and quaint restaurants. Around every turn, were colorful pots of flowering plants.

 

And, in between our chores & the rain showers, on a bright, clear day  we worked in a day of sightseeing to Deception Pass and Whidbey Island. From the deck where we had lunch, we had a fantastic view of snowcapped Mt. Rainer and the cruising boats in the harbor.
