2021 Candy Cane Drive

2021 Candy Cane Drive

9:30am to 3:30pm

The Seattle Section started the morning at 0930 on December 11, gathering in the large parking lot across the street from Mercedes-Benz of Seattle. Enjoying some fellowship and sharing coffee and donuts.  Once all registered persons had signed their release forms, we had our drivers briefing and then we were off and running.

Our first leg took us on to Eastbound Interstate 90 to Issaquah, exiting on Front Street and arriving at our first stop, the world-famous Boehm’s Candies chalet.

After we all finished sampling and shopping the delicious confections, we hopped back in our Mercedes chariots and headed out the backroad toward Maltby.  Enroute to the regionally famous Flower World in Maltby, we passed over a section of the original cobblestone wagon road that served as part of the original Snoqualmie Pass wagon road.

After a short break in Cottage Lake we were back on the road for Flower World. Flower World is a 200-acre nursery started in 1965 by Norwegian immigrants John and Marijke Postema.  

Now getting hungry we headed over to the delightful Maltby Café for a world class brunch, featuring cinnamon rolls that fill a dinner plate!

It was nice to sit and relax and enjoy talking about our drive, plans for the New Year, and just reconnecting with our Mercedes Club friends.  A quick survey of the 22 members and 15 cars present, this was a very successful last drive of 2021.
