Espresso in La Conner on our Coleman Sportster Camp Stove

Sweet Pea, the pugs and I took a day and headed up to Whidbey Island and then over to Marysville, via the wonderful little town of La Conner, and then back to Port Townsend.  We had a great day, rode both of our new ferries, the Chetzemoka and Salish, found a few treasures in Mt. Vernon, had an espresso break under La Conner's Rainbow Bridge, bought a couple of incredible "wet burritos at our favorite drive-through Mexican food spot in Anacortes and then ate them by the shore of Deception Pass............. all-in-all, a great day!

The little Coleman Sportster 502-700 stove worked wonderfully for a quick pot of espresso in our little Italian espresso pot.  The stove fits perfectly in my little salt and pepper Swiss bag.  It's a perfect grab-and-go bag for the little stove.

Here's a short vacation photo album from the trip:
