Whidbey Island

Whidbey Island

After a ferry ride that included a very brief stop at Shaw Island, we arrived back in Anacortes. A short drive brought us to Oak Harbor and the Auld Holland Inn, our home for the night.

The following day we hit the road again. We arrived in Langley where we had coffee and then enjoyed a walk along the water. The accordionist serenaded us at Useless Bay Cafe. The view was beautiful although the clouds prevailed.

Our next stop was Coupville where the skies had cleared. We had lunch out on the pier and then took a walk through the town.

On the drive back to Leavenworth, we stopped in La Conner. This delightful town featured an interesting antique store and I adored the vintage signs on the side of the building. The old bucaneer also caught my eye as we drove down the main street.

This was a whirlwind trip of the island and I realize now why this is such a popular tourist area. I have often heard friends talk of Whidbey and now I can say that I have been there too.
