The rainy and windy weekend was a perfect test environment for having a camper van for a year-round camping season.
While the Skagit Valley is best known for it's tuplip fields, late May had plenty of colorful patches of bulbs and plenty to see.

An unexpected stop at the Ballard Farmer's Market yields a bounty of seasonal delicacies and that's not even counting the oysters we ate the next day.
With the day bright and a car to get there, Skagit Valley was a swell place to play hookie for the day and get in some miles on the bike.
For our first truly glorious spring weekend, we skipped the house chores and went to the Pt. Defiance Zoo.
