Because we plan our activities according to the weather forecast these days, we scheduled Thursday, St Patrick's Day, as the time to make a day trip to the cabin on Whidbey Island to get the garden there cleaned up.
We were up early and joined the slow moving traffic getting through the city. We arrived at the ferry dock at 9:30, just as our boat was coming in. As you can see, it was a beautiful day, just as was predicted.
We had a lot of cleaning up to do in the yard, and a ton of weeding. We worked together for over four hours, with a break for lunch. The results were worth it.
We won't wait so long for our next visit. We'll spend a night at the cabin when we go to the Tulip Festival in the Skagit Valley. The tulips are already beginning to bloom in the bulb fields there.
It was very quiet at the beach today.
Not much wildlife; just this bunny.
We had a rest after the work was done, and visited the Bayview Garden Center before going out to eat on the island. Then we rode the ferry back to the mainland as the sun was setting.
It was a good day's work on a very good day.
