I went to the Fairhaven Area of Bellingham which is the historic district of the city. It is beautiful, the buildings are brick and sturdy but have been reclaimed by local stores and companies. Village Books is famous for this area, is it a gorgeous book store with three levels and so much personality.
I am a huge fan of sweets and candy, my favourites being salty black licorice and I couldn't pass up going in to Papa's sweets - I left with lots of licorice and delicious salt water taffy, I posted a picture of the flavours I picked up on my instagram
Tony's Coffee is another staple in Fairhaven and the coffee is delicious - something you can not miss!
Buildings like these are all over Fairhaven and I love the look
I couldn't have asked for a nicer day to explore the city. Since Bellingham is also a port town, there was a beautiful seawall where you could pretend the yacht's belonged to you
Fat Pie Pizza was by far the best pizza I have ever had! The taste is so fresh and the service is great - plus there is a donut and ice cream place next door so that is always an extra bonus ;-)
This building was my favourite by far - someone had shaped the vines on the side of the building to make a beautiful heart.
I finished my day back on the beach in Birch Bay to watch the sun to go down and to think about my Oma who passed away a few weeks before. I miss her everyday and sitting on the beach reflecting made me feel closer to her than I had since she was gone.
Thank you everyone for letting me share! I will be back posting regularly and have new projects coming soon!
