Nothing reminds me more of some of my favorite summer time activities than the scent of lavender. I will admit. I am a sucker for the scent of lavender. Not the cloying fragrance, but the clean smell of real lavender. I love how it relaxes you in a hot bath at the end of a stressful day. I love the way a great lotion smells and softens the hands. Most of all, I love how a lavender scented massage oil just wisks you away to a better/happier place.
That said, July 15th – July 17th, Sequim is hosting its 15th Annual Lavender Festival. Come one/come all. You can take a tour of the farms – FOR FREE this year! You can even enjoy a glass of lavender wine in the wine/beer garden at the street fair. Park for free in the JCPenny’s lot and take a shuttle bus to the street fair. Busses run every 15-20 minutes. Have fun everyone!
