Out for a drive - we decided to head to Snohomish County - south of where we usually go to see the Trumpeter Swans and the Snow Geese. We weren't looking for birds - but for barns. A completely different area with barns we'd never seen before.
A working barn, with a new tin roof
In need of repair - sitting on a soggy lot with seasonal ponds surrounding it. It rained almost the entire day we were in Snohomish County.
Excellent barn - a bit smudgy in a drive-by shot.
This old barn and the next one were sitting just a few feet apart on the same property.
Similarly shaped barn sits on a once profitable farm - two big barns on the same property is unusual.
No longer usable
Sad and sinking back into the earth
A barn that remains in the middle of the Snohomish Small Plane Airport - probably used only for storage these days.
Along the way we came across a covered bridge. Good shot for a drive-by,
We took a side road off to Granite Falls and found the delightful restaurant - Buzz Inn. There are several in the state - best food we've ever had - and at exceptionally good prices - two things we love in a restaurant. Everything was fresh and perfectly prepared.
Now if they would just put a Buzz Inn in Bellingham.
Our table was right next to this fireplace - perfect for a cozy dinner on a rainy evening.
