The past two weeks I’ve made several different trips from La Conner to I-5 via Conway. And I have loved every single trip! Sure, it’s been windy and it’s been rainy and it’s been gray and overcast. But OH MY GOSH … right now the fields are full of Snow Geese and Trumpeter Swans. And […]
I love this town. I love everything about it. The past month has shown me what a really amazing place it is, and I am so proud that I get to be a part of it. And thankful that I live where I live. The first thing I discovered, back in November, is Arts Alive! […]

I’ve lived in La Conner since 2004. I’ve been coming to La Conner since 1986. And I have a confession to make. I had no idea of the breadth and the depth of the arts community we have here. No. Idea. I knew we had 3 museums, and I knew we had several galleries, and I […]
My husband and I are the owners of a 30’ sailboat. Like many boating couples, the captain of our boat grew up on a boat. He learned how to start, stop, dock, maneuver in tight quarters, set an anchor, snag a buoy, handle strong currents and tide changes – all the things that boaters need […]
A couple of weeks ago I was in downtown La Conner on an absolutely gorgeous summer day, running some errands and doing a little people-watching. When you’re getting to know your community better … like I am … it’s fun to just hang out in town and watch what goes on. It’s also great fun […]
I want to share a letter with you, and then a bit more about the story – because this is the kind of story that makes us locals nod our heads in understanding, and not-so-locals perhaps understand a bit better why we are such a special community. Here is the letter – sent from Joy […]
One of the great things about small communities is that on any given day you’re likely to see the same people out and about. When I was growing up I lived in a small town, and vividly remember the man who wore striped overalls and a straw hat, while riding his blue Schwinn bike all […]
Clearly I am behind the times here in La Conner. My head is in the sand. I am too much work and not enough play. I am – as my Grandmother would say – a girl in need of a party hat. (Her name was Elise Mersereau; she was a Seattle beauty with a twinkle […]
When I lived in the big city, I had a wonderful garden. I could plant anything, and as long as I was diligent about slug control, whatever I planted still looked good several months later. Now that I live in La Conner, I love my new garden even more. My garden is full of lovely, lush […]
This winter, I have had reason to spend a fair amount of time at Balance Point Physical Therapy. I didn’t even know these folks existed – because, after all, I was a tourist. You see, when you think of yourself as a tourist – as I have done for several years now – when you […]
It’s a contest. People take this seriously. There are bragging rights to be had. But before the winner of the Spaghetti Cook-off is announced … those of us on the judging panel (actually an entire auditorium of us) get to sample some rockin’ awesome spaghetti. We tasted 6 different red sauces – made by local […]
While we get our fair share of glorious sunshine in La Conner, this spring has been decidedly wet. It has rained. It has been damp and dark and oh-so gloomy. Spring began in March, sloshed its way through April and dripped into May. But from all of this wetness has come lushness. I can honestly say […]
I am not a good stand-in-line person. Or at least I didn’t used to be. But as I get older, I’ve realized that becoming impatient – which leads to becoming cranky – which leads to all sorts of stress-related cellular changes in my body – doesn’t make the line go faster. Just because I’m tapping my foot and my […]
Today, I went to town. I tried going as a community member, but darn it – I still felt like a tourist. I think I’m going have to work harder at this no-longer-a-tourist thing. But it was so fun! The sidewalks were full of happy, smiling people (many of whom were carrying bags with purchases […]
When my Dad retired from medicine, he and my Mom built a wonderful vacation home, complete with a La Conner zip code. I cannot, for the life of me, remember names, but give me a number and I’m all over it. 98257. Before my folks even had a house attached to their address, which was […]
