Road trips are so much fun!
Just seeing the country side as you drive by delights me.
You probably can't see them, but there were ripe cherries in these trees.
I couldn't wait to find a farm stand and finally did enjoy freshly picked
fruit! Oh my, but the cherries were amazing and even had one delicious apricot too.
I think if I had to choose one food group to eat it would
be fresh fruit from the tree.
Finally making it to Cashmere, Washington
we stopped at the Aplet's and Cotlet's factory for a tour.
Do you know them?
I love these Turkish Delights.
There were slabs of this delightful candy.
Then they were covered in baking powder, so they didn't stick together.
Cut into bite sized candies and the powder shook off,
then sprinkled with sugar.
Then sorted and packaged up.
Yes, there were samples too.
It is hard to tell, but the main street of Cashmere was lined with flags.
It was a sweet downtown and we were glad we stopped for awhile.
Small town America, how it touches my heart.
Then along the road one of our planned stops was Leavenworth, Wa.
It is like an alpine village from Switzerland.
Tucked among the mountains.
A sweet oasis of food and delights.
The town square on a beautiful, sunny day.
A lunch which involved German food and a stroll through shops
was the plan. It didn't disappoint.
We picked up sausages, cheese, bread for a later picnic down the road.
Now isn't that what a road trip is all about?
Seeing the sights, being surprised by new things,
and enjoying the local food.
Happy weekend, dear friends!
Hope you find opportunity to get out there and explore.
