The Island life

I found my place here in the Northwest!  Whidbey Island is just beautiful with the right mix of small towns and larger communities.  They have lots of farm land and just beautiful views of the sound and other islands.  Our first stop was Deception Pass Bridge & Park.  Wow!

It was so beautiful here I hated to leave but onward we must go.  Leaving Deception Pass we drove along the Island enjoying the countryside.  Lots of small farms, beautiful country and some cute little towns.  Coupeville was one such town; only one street full of boutique’s and eateries right on the bay.

Nearby is the Whidbey NAS and we got a great view of one of the planes.

Coupeville is where we needed to catch the ferry to return to the mainland but on the way Paul spotted another fort!  He never misses a chance to see some guns!  Fort Casey sits on the point looking across to Port Townsend on Puget Sound.  I don’t really enjoy looking a forts, guns or batteries but they are usually in really nice spots right on the ocean.

Poor Duke, he has to put up with us as we get bored once in awhile!!
