A Road less traveled

It’s funny what you find when you stray from the beaten path. Yesterday I did jut that and scored!
I was driving home from Bellingham yesterday in the afternoon and I decided I wasn’t just going to drive home, but I would make a few stops along the way and see what there was to see. My first stop landed me at the Outlet Mall north of Burlington. I figured I would just check it out and see if there were any col things there at a good discount. The Eddie Bauer store had some cool stuff but nothing I needed. The score was when I checked out the Corning & Correll store next door. All of their Pyrex was on sale 25% off of the already discounted outlet prices. I got a 10 piece Pyrex dish and lid set for just over $16. Nice!

So as I was leaving the outlet mall I over heard there was a huge accident further south on my route. Instead of sitting in traffic I figured i could find one of the roadside produce vendors to kill some time while waiting for traffic to clear. I found a stand that was a little out of the way by accident while i was just trying to find somewhere to get a drink because I was thirsty. This was a pretty typical produce stand except for one think. Every Saturday they give out free roasted corn on the cob. Free! You don’t have to buy anything either. And they just keep giving you ore until you tell them you don’t want anymore. It was pretty awesome and I totally love fresh roasted corn. They also provide melted butter and seasoning too. I ended up having two ears of corn. It made for a nice free lunch. I am thinking I will have to head back up and check them out again while the corn is at it’s peak of harvest. It would make a good stop on the way back from a hike to the Mt. Baker Hot Springs.
