Whidbey Island

We just got back from an awesome long weekend on nearby Whidbey Island.  After taking the ferry over on Friday morning, we dived into our explorations of the island.  Some highlights included walking out on the Coupeville Wharf, lunch with pie at the Knead and Feed, an amazing castle playground in Langley, several meals of local Penn Cove mussels, shopping at the Goose, a fun playground and wading pool in Oak Harbor, the Loganberry Festival at Greenbank Farm, watching movies in the evenings in our room at the waterfront Boatyard Inn in Langley, and lots of chocolate, candy and fresh fruit!  We then capped off the weekend with a whale watching boat trip in the San Juan Islands, where saw five or six orcas, including a couple of very close breaches!  We can't wait to head back to Whidbey sometime soon!
