To Whidbey Island and Back

By the time we finished the last day of garden touring Monday we were in Edmonds and not far from the Mukilteo ferry. We had to wait for a second boat, but by 5:00 we were settled in and having wine and cheese on the deck.
We could see the neighbor's little patch of beauty across the street.
It was solstice, the longest day of the year, and after a salad dinner, we used the light to weed and edit our cabin garden, which has gotten a bit exuberant.
Then we had today to play and relax.
We came back so soon because we are really into the World Cup, and we have no cable TV or Internet at the cabin. Tomorrow morning the USA plays their third and decisive match, and their group will be decided to see which two teams advance.
Gotta see it!


  1. yes, that is one exuberant garden, very lovely I might add. And it's wonderful to be able to be so cut off from the world, except when the World Cup is happening.

  2. I'm with you. I would love to have a glass of champagne (sparkling wine) and cheese, too, and enjoy the view. Nice way to relax!

  3. what a lovely spot to get away for a day or so...

  4. I really like your exhuberant garden! Lovely home to relax in.

  5. What a beautiful retreat you have! That garden may be exuberant, but but it is lovely.
