La Conner, Washington
Near 1st St @ Morris St
After seeing the tulips at the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, I decided to get an early dinner in nearby La Conner. Founded in 1867, it was named for Louisa Ann Conner, wife of the man who bought the town's trading post. Today it is a small waterfront village with a number of historical buildings. It draws tourists year-round but especially in April during the tulip festival.
I took a walk around town, checking out the older buildings and the Swinomish Channel waterfront views. A couple sights especially caught my eye, shown below. It was certainly a pleasant enough place to visit for a few hours, longer if you're into tourist shopping.

Birdhouse on Morris in Downtown La Conner (Z12A0018)
This fanciful birdhouse caught my eye. It actually resembled the building on the same property.
