Have you ever had to many things started? I at the moment have a ton of great ideas started, but need to focus like crazy to keep them going. And minimize a little until things get going. That said, as soon as I am working again I am going to start a second blog. About how great Whatcom county is! And the many free-cheap things to do and explore. The following will be a taste of what will be added. Tomorrow I should have another hike one posted. We have a ton of items up for bid on Ebay and such sights. And will be starting an online store very soon. **Please contact me if you would like to view some awesome items at low low prices---always!
Fairhaven so far is a great place to explore. I am now surrounded by great trails and will be reporting about many of them very soon. Please check out my hike 101 posting, for my own take on trail ratings. I keep trying to compare the town to the Fairhaven in Popeye the movie. Besides being a bay town, their are not many other comparisons. I used to think that Fairhaven was a richer district full of a little bit snottyier class of residents. Now I really like the town. It's smallness and great shopping, coffee shops, trails, and bay access.
Downtown is small so you can cross it very quickly. But I find it more fun to take in all the sights. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. I have meet some great people just while sipping coffee. A minute about coffee shops--because coffee is my best friend!! Am/Pm is not really down town-but has awesome coffee! They have a whole wall of different blend choices. Almost to many to choose from early in the morning. Plus most importantly, you get a punch card were it only takes three drinks, to receive a free one! The Haggins, closer to downtown, is great for people watching and such but the coffee really isn't that good. Although the re fills are full and the seating area is nice. The toy store downtown is one of the best I have seen. Just down from the fish and chips bus *Awesome food* is a Gelleto store, highly recommended. Two huge book stores occupy downtown. The courtyard pictured below is behind one of them. In the summer time they play free movies on there. Great place to wander on a rare sunny winter day.
