Shopping, lunch and shopping!August 18, 2020 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 68 °F
A little cooler day, high 90s, maybe it hit one hundred... but this works out well for shopping! All shops were air conditioned, so we always had a cool respite as we "shopped!"
Almost all visitors were pretty good about masks, and the stores had tables set up with hand sanitary stations right at the entrance. With signs suggesting you only pick up items that you were interested in buying...
Leavenworth is a Bavarian themed small town, kind of in the heart of fruit trees, vines, and craft breweries, at the base of the Cascades. Lots of shops, clothing, home accessories, women's boutiques, sporting goods, pretzels, candy, bakeries, bratwurst, cheese shops....and all with air conditioning. Even in "bavaria town" we ended up with pizza for lunch, because frankly, the outdoor seating was in the shade! But I did forego the pepperoni for sausage out of deference for the theme!
