A short vacation is finally coming our way! My spouse and I are soon headed to the Washington coast, the Olympic National Forest, and Kalaloch beach. As we have done for long as we can remember, we will hike as long and far as we are able. Even though we both realize that the days of 10 – 15 mile hikes are behind us, we are ready for hikes of at least 5 miles at a time. And to prepare for these hikes, we took a day-trip to Whidbey Island. The following pictures will give you an idea of what this lovely, lively island has to offer. Enjoy!
And this morning, I decided to take a long walk in some of the most beautiful weather we have had this summer. A soft breeze, early morning sounds, and a sky so blue it looked painted greeted me. The following pictures show a little of why I love the Pacific Northwest so much.
I wish you clear skies, good walking weather, and excellent coffee!
