nash's farm- washington's second oldest organic farm. nash gave norm and myla a free range pig as a wedding gift.
i had one of the best meals i've had in years at alder wood bistro in sequim. artisanal locavore seasonal foodie food in a tiny town that seems to consist of one or two streets! it's REALLY good. both norm and myla have connections to the restaurant. myla works there and norm supplies the lumber for the wood fired oven from his small scale logging operation. chef/owner gabriel made planked local salmon for the wedding and closed the restaurant (on saturday!) so all involved could attend!
in this small community about 300 people showed up for the wedding. while some of us came from far and wide most of the guests were from sequim. in some ways the sequim scene reminded me of wellfleet on cape cod, but the cape landscape is stunted and cute, in sequim it's enveloping and ambivalent. the land of twin peaks and hank stamper.
