Day two of our little adventure was hardly as exciting as day one. First off, we were all pretty tired from all the running around on day one. Second, there is only so much one can see while driving. Of course, that didn’t stop us from getting off the highway in a few spots to check out the local sights. One such stop was Greenbank Farm.
We actually stopped to check out the cheese shop, but since it was closed, we ventured in to a few of the art galleries and the little restaurant before jumping back on the road. From there, Ara only had one thing on her mind – Coffee in Langley and ice cream for the kids.
Our first stop after arriving in Langley was Sweet Mona’s Chocolate Boutique. They have amazing gelato and truffles. It’s a bit pricey, but a little bit goes a long way.
We sat down to enjoy a bit of a frozen treat for the kids, and a free Father’s Day truffle for me. Then it was a quick walk up the road to hit Useless Bay Coffee for that cup that dreams are made of.
Yes, here is the perfect cup of coffee. Twice we have been there and twice they have delivered on every food and coffee dream we have had. After filling up the kids on quesedillas and fries, along with ourselves on that perfect cup of coffee, we headed down to Clinton to catch the ferry back to Mukilteo and finish the last leg of our weekend.
The ferry line looked quite a bit worse than it was. We actually stopped at the 90 minute wait marker first, but then rolled forward quickly. We only waited about an hour total for the boat, which for a holiday weekend was pretty good. Once on board, the girls wanted to see the boat, for about 5 minutes before they got cold and became too windy for them.
Even with the cold and wind, I did manage to demand a ‘groupie’ with them before we went inside and got back in the car for the drive home. Overall, it was a fantastic weekend and a great practice trip for the Redwoods this summer! Scary to think that we are only 6 weeks away from hitting the road for that trip!
