We headed to western Washington to be a part of the wedding festivities, and figured we might as well check out the Tulip Festival. Seeing the tulip farms has been on my Bucket List, and we had a bit of free time on a weekday (suggested to avoid the massive crowds). Let's do it!
Of course I forgot my camera, so the only pictures I have are from my cell phone/Instagram.
To get to Mt. Vernon, home of the Tulip Festival, one must drive through Everett, Washington. Yay! I had never been there before, and I was interested in seeing what the place looks like. When one googles "Everett, Washington," these are the images one might view:
How quaint and scenic is that?
But when you drive through Everett, Washington, this is really what you see:
Neither quaint, nor scenic.
So for the rest of our time on the west side, I found myself saying, "This is Everett. We didn't name him after the town."
