Merrilee cokks crabsBellingham Washington is home to Amy’s mother, the wonderful Merrilee Kullman. We spent a relaxing ten days walking in the woods around, playing with Luna (Merrilee’s Australian Shepherd) wandering the streets of old Fairhaven and downtown Bellingham, cooking dinner together and doing a little extra preparation for the rest of the adventure. Amy and Turgay even prepared a Turkish meal for Merrilee and a friend. Another day they went and bought fresh crabs that Merrilee then boiled up for them, delicious another night we had a wonderful dinner together with Merrilee’s neighbors Candy and Dean.
Amy’s mom lives off a private road out in Whatcom County about a 25 minute drive from the town of Bellingham, Washington. The home is situated on 10 acres, with most of the acreage being sloped woods. Neighbors are also on large plots of land nearby down an unpaved tree lined road. Luna and the roadIt is a magical place and Merrilee, a master gardener, has done an incredible job landscaping her garden and pond, at the same time she has been dedicated to replanting the woods with a variety of native conifers.
Bellingham is a small town that has grown into a small city in recent years, the downtown has old brick buildings and is complimented by Fairhaven a quaint old town that was incorporated into Bellingham. Turgay and Amy especially enjoyed the farmer’s markets full of organic produce from local growers, La Vie en Rose bakery in downtown Bellingham and the Colophone Café in historic Fairhaven.
Their final day in Bellingham they took Luna to Whatcom Falls Park, a beautiful WPA park with waterfalls, swimming areas, old stone bridges and an off leash areas for dogs. They ended their stay in Bellingham with a Greyhound bus ride to Seattle.
