Island life is pleasantly disconnected from the mainland hustle and bustle. The 3 days we thought we visit somehow turned into a week or so... Jen showed us around all the sites.
And Kayaking in Penn cove.
My hopes of seeing Orca though were perhaps a little ambitious.
Washing has a lot of trees and a lot of rain, and a lot of driftwood. A lot, everywhere !
Deception pass is a touristy spot, some interesting weather started there.
Later on that evening we headed into Anacortes, at which point the storm was in full swing. Thunder storms are a rare occurance on the coast there, and every time there was a strike, the entire bar would cheer and clap. That is, until there was a very close strike that exploded nearby by and the power went off. The ensuing chaos was quite entertaining :)
Some nature spots you may want to stay in the car for !
I'm glad they weren't mosquitoes though ! At dusk there were plenty of them.
A fabulous week, thanks Jen !
