Fall on Whidbey Island

As it turns out, the one thing that Jasmine and I really like doing is taking ferry trips out to maritime Islands. I’m sure you couldn’t guess from reading the blog. So, this weekend, we took a trip up to Whidbey Island, one of the islands on the Sound. While you can drive the long way around and use a bridge to get on the island, it is much shorter for us to take the car ferry. It was only a one and a half hour trip from work and it is always delightfully refreshing to be relaxing on an island.

We weren’t really up to that much over the weekend; we just went on a lot of small hikes in the various small parks on the island. That and had delightful seafood. Non stop local oysters and local mussels for the win!

We were on the ball during the trip, really had our ducks in a row.

On the first night we got an awesome sunset on Double Bluff beach.

And lots of Heron. I assume that means lots of small fish but we couldn't verify.

And a fort visit, to Fort Casey.

Equally opportunity ruined for visitors - Roman, Maori, Medieval, WWII or other.

Forestwalk! Now with Big trees! This was the trail on the way to the "Ancient Cedar." Not the first or last walk we have taken to see large or ancient trees.
