Washington State/Canada Trip- Day 4 (Birch Bay State Park)

Hey there! Today I’m recapping our final day in Washington State! In case you missed the others, here are the links to our travel day, Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3.

Saturday began with Kirsten’s final wedding dress fitting. It was so special to see the dress put together at last. I can’t wait to show you guys pictures from the wedding in October! After the fitting, we all headed out to Fair Haven, WA to find fish and chips! We walked around exploring for a while, but we weren’t having any luck finding a restaurant that served fish and chips.



The restaurant we wanted to eat at- unfortunately not open on Mondays!



The above photos are of a cute little shop! I thought it was neat that they left their sweet dog there to “guard” the shop. All you had to do was open the gate and go right in!


After searching for a while, we ended up at Scotty Brown’s.



It was a bit pricey, so Ben and I split a two-piece order of fish and chips. I have to say, it was theย bestย fish and chips I have ever had! We drizzled lemon juice over ours which made it that much better. It was to die for!



After lunch, we headed back to the condo to relax for a while. Eventually, near 4 in the afternoon, we headed out for a hike/walk in Birch Bay State Park! I’ll recap this one in the same way that I recapped the beach- I’ll just show you a ton of my favorite photos!

Giant maple leaves


Can you tell he hates pictures? ๐Ÿ˜‰


The roots of a new tree were growing over an old tree stump!


A marsh that our trail led us to


The roots of an overturned tree


“Skunk cabbage.” Supposedly the leaves smell like a skunk when rubbed together! You can”t tell from the picture, but these plants were actually HUGE!


Attempted selfie!

As you can see, there was tons of GREEN! It was fabulous for this Arizona gal! After our walk through the park, we walked back to the condo. The walk back turned out to be a little over a mile. I won’t lie, it was exhausting! I got re-sunburnt, but it was worth it!

That night, we had the whole family over to the condo for dinner. We had a great time eating, talking, and relaxing. It was a great way to spend our last night in the Northwest!
