A Day On Whidbey Island

We had been wanting a day to get up to the cabin on Whidbey Island to do some winter clean up in the garden.  With a great weather forecast, today was the day.


Here comes the ferry.

 Golden eyes by the ferry dock.
 The North Cascades were lit up in the sun.
Boeing was testing new planes.
 The Mukilteo Light House


 We spotted porpoises but they were hard to capture in a photo.
 A raft of surf scoters.
 At the cabin.  Jan and Ann were there, finishing up their stay, and we had a chance to visit.  Then we went to work in the front yard.
 I love it when the lagoon is full and is a mirror of the blue sky.
 The work done, it was time for a walk.  Two eagles perched over the beach road.

 We walked up the hill on the road and then back down through the wetlands.




The day was growing late, so we said farewell to Useless Bay.

 It was time to pay a visit to Langley and have coffee at the Useless Bay Coffee Company.  But first we enjoyed the view over the Langley Marina.




 And then we made the crossing back to the mainland as the sun set on a wonderful get away day
