Last Friday On Whidbey

It was a lovely early afternoon as we rode the Washington State Ferry from Mukilteo, on the mainland, to Clinton, on Whidbey Island, with Mt Baker in the background. From there it's about a 10 minute drive to Sunlight Beach.

Sunlight was the story of the day. We had some lunch, and then roused ourselves enough to tend to the cabin garden. It's looking pretty good in it's late summer mode. Good thing we planned it to take care of itself most of the time.

Then we settled in to laziness. Dinner happened without much effort. We watched a bit of the Olympics, but more importantly we took time to sit on the beach and watch the sun set over the bay, lighting up Mt Rainier, and silhouetting the Olympic Mountains.

A lovely start to a peaceful weekend.


  1. perfect lazy summer day with watching the sunset and just relaxing. wish i could have been there but with the photos i felt like i was there...thanks.

  2. What lovely photos you have. where is Sunlight Beach? My Mother lives in Langley and we drive around to the beaches but we must have missed that one although I suppose it is private.
    As for my pond and the Koi---I always chase the Heron away on the rare occasion I see one. I think the Koi are too big now for the Heron and there are plenty of frogs and smaller critter for heron munchies. When the water is real low in late summer or early fall I sometimes see raccoon tracks but I have never seen a raccoon or oppossum around. I think the pond is deep enough for the fish to get out of harms way also. MB

  3. Life is suuuweeet!!! for Linda and her loved ones!

    Thanks for sharing this delightful and replenishing day with us!!


  4. Wow..what scenery Linda..Perfect summer for you and the family..
