My culinary adventure recently took me to the towns of Bow and Edison. Have you been? It’s one of the great foodcentric day trips from Seattle, about a 90-minute drive north to the Skagit Valley. You can pick up fresh baguettes from Breadfarm and butter from Golden Glen Creamery. Or stop by the gourmet food shop Slough Food for some Gothberg Farms goat cheese and prosciutto di parma.
Even better, I recently discovered there are cabins nearby with views of the water that you can rent for about $60 a night
It makes for a splendid, cheap getaway.
I love opening the cabin door at dawn and seeing the San Juan Islands in the distance. I love walking the shoreline and smelling low tide coming off the bay. I love that the cabin only costs about $60. And I love fresh baguette smeared with butter and more butter.
And if you want to burn some calories, hike nearby Larrabee State Park or Bay View State Park. Or just take a scenic drive along Chuckanut Drive. The story on the cabin stay is here. And here is a story if you want to just do a day trip, written in 2009 but still timely.
