Welcome and thank you for visiting Sequim Daily Photo! This blog was begun August 30, 2006 by Norma (known as “Lavender Lady”) who maintained it until 2010 when Shannon took over for a year. Kay, the current blogger, has posted since August, 2011. You are very welcome to visit and comment on our current posts and to check out Norma’s and Shannon’s archives.
Sequim (pronounced “Skwim”) has a population of roughly 26,500 and is located on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State U.S.A. The city is about two and a half hours travel time west of Seattle, including a ferry ride across Puget Sound. It is bounded on the north by the Strait of Juan de Fuca and to the south by the Olympic Mountains. The area is famous for its location in the rain shadow of the Olympics, which generally moderates local rainfall compared to other regions in western Washington. The temperate climate is ideal for growing lavender and growers host an annual Lavender Weekend the third weekend in July. Learn more about this beautiful place we call home as you scan our photos.
