This is our 100th post! I wish I could give $100 to the first 100 readers who respond to this, but I know you get so much joy out of reading our blog you wouldn't be able to accept it on principle. ;) So, I will just say happy 100th post everybody!
Also, David and I are on our 30th mile of our 50 Mile Challenge! David has recovered enough from his stint in the hospital that we were able to walk two miles together the other night.
OK, on to the fun of last weekend. David is getting to know me pretty well, so he set up the perfect day trip for the one year anniversary of our first official date. He is obviously quite the romantic to remember such things. He knows I like to explore new places and holes in the wall, so off he drove me to Wenatchee and Leavenworth. I've been to both, but never had time at either one. He found perfect spots to explore!
The main place in Wenatchee was Ohme Gardens. Beautiful! Walking paths everywhere, flowers, views, a wishing well, waterfalls...
I saw some Indian Moccasins there! They are the little yellow flowers in the front that look like tiny slippers.
Next we headed into Leavenworth which is a little Bavarian town in the mountains. Everything is cute! Even the 76 Station and McDonalds have their logos painted in a fancy Bavarian style. There are leiderhosen everywhere and fudge! Oh I love the fudge! They had a band playing polka in the main park and the smell of German Sausage wafting through the streets.
The next day when people asked me where we went and I told them Wenatchee, they chuckled because it isn't a real tourist destination. This is why I started out saying David is getting to know me so well because for me it doesn't matter what town we go to, it's the exploration and new experiences I love.
