When the State is named Washington, it might be a fair claim that old George Washington could have slept everywhere in that state. Well, truth be told, I did meet George Washington in Sequim, in fact he is an actor, Vern Frykholm, that dresses up and portrays George Washington at different venues and often at the George Washington Inn during their annual Lavender Festival in July and the Northwest Colonial Festival in August.
The George Washington Inn is a Bed & Breakfast Lavender Farm that was one of the last farms we stopped at in Sequim. From the roadside you can see the stately looking white mansion with a long entry road with fences and lavender and wildflowers landscaped on the property. It also has a barn-like building which houses their gift shop but I didn’t have time to explore that building because I was
conscripted drafted inducted asked to assist in photographing some publicity photos of George as I stepped on the property to do some landscape photos of the lavender and Inn. This will be my Thursday Doors post for this week.
The owner, Dan Abbott, saw me with my camera and headed directly to me to ask a favor that I could not refuse. He wanted someone to take photos of George, some bank representatives holding one of those huge cardboard checks and himself for some donation or charitable cause; I think that was the purpose but I was too busy trying to focus the cellphone camera to make sure everything was good in the photos. They were satisfied when the job was done and discharged me from the Colonial Army so I could do my civilian photographs.
The George Washington Inn as it appeared when I volunteered to shoot some photos for Dan Abbott and George Washington.
George Washington mobilized Dan Abbott and their bank which has trained orcas on wheels to get ready for battle.
This is their replica bridge where they enact the Battle at Lexington at the annual Northwest Colonial Festival.
