The second day we headed out to one of DH's favorite haunts...Poulsbo. It is a small Swedish fishing village. (Not really *that* small, but cozy). The first stop, of course, was the Heritage quilt shop. I got the neatest fish fabric there! It reminds me of salmon swimming in the river. I will have to remember to take photos of all the things I bought so I can share with you all. I went to 5 different shops in 2 and one half days so I may not remember which shop each thing came from, but the fish fabric I remember!
Since DD2 wants to go into Marine biology and is currently majoring in fisheries and wildlife at MSU, I took this photo so when she is looking at internships she can see if they have any. I can't imagine Poulsbo being a "hot bed" of excitement so maybe it is enough off the beaten path and may be a little easier to locate and internship. It's worth a try, right? That's DH walking away from the sign. The center was not open on wednesdays so we could just peek in the windows. The science nerd in me was a little disappointed that I could not check it out.
Here is a view of the harbor in Poulsbo. Beautiful!
Another, view, to the left of the first one.
When I went into the quilt shop here I had my new green shoes on. The lady behind the counter was just so excited about them and asked me lots of questions about where I got them. I gave her all the information and went on my way. DH and I walked down the street and crossed to the other side to the local shoe store. Guess what was in their window?? Yep...my green shoes! I went back to tell her and she took her break and bought herself a pair! That's me, spreading the magic of the green shoes, one person at a time!!
We kept walking and went into the local chocolate shop where DH bought a ton of black licorice (YUCK!!) I bought a piece of sea foam. I just love it but I was restrained in my purchase. Then off to the Swedish bakery. I smelled all the smells and bought one cookie! YIKES, get me out of here before I weigh 500 pounds!! More later.
