We are on the island.
The sky was dark to the south over Seattle as we crossed the sound on the ferry Tuesday morning.
But things were much brighter over Useless Bay when we arrived at the Whidbey cabin.
In fact as it blew and rained and hailed and thundered over the city, we were able to weed the garden, do a little tree trimming, and go for a walk.
It's tulip time. Today we'll drive up island and into the Skagit Valley for the Tulip Festival. We're hoping those showers continue to be somewhere else.
There will be photos of flowers sometime to come.
