There were several buildings full of dahlia's and even tables outside that were stacked. A couple of buildings were filled with a single dahlia in a pot. One building was full of the history of dahlias. Not being a history fan, I didn't spend much time in that building, too much reading for me! There was another building with photos of dahlias. My favorite building though was the flower arrangements. There were a lot of fun and creative pieces. These were two of my favorites. I have more photos from the show on Flickr.
After the Dahlia festival we took a short drive to Mukilteo and visited the Lighthouse Park. I've never been there but have always wanted to go because I love to photograph lighthouses. While my parents stared out at the water and watched the ferries come in and out, me and Mark went up into the lighthouse. There was a nice view of the Puget Sound and the ferry docks. We couldn't spend too much time up there because only a couple people are allowed up at a time and there were more people waiting to go up so we took a few snapshots and headed back down.
It was a nice warm day and the ice cream was calling us so we walked a few blocks to get some soft serve at Ivars. I actually got a root beer float which I haven't had in I don't know how long, but it hit the spot.
