Transported to Another Dimension…

by a short ride on a Ferry Boat.

 

From the ferry on our short trip from Mukilteo to Clinton on Whidbey Island.

 

I waved hello to my Mennonite Girlfriends in British Columbia on the other side of these mountains.

 

 

We were in for a rain filled weekend. We knew ahead of time so we had the proper gear on board.

 

It’s hard to stop for a photo op when exiting a ferry boat. You have to keep going with the flow. That is my excuse for this blurry photo.

Whidbey Island is the largest island in Washington’s Puget Sound, forming the Sound’s northern boundary. At 168.67 square miles, it’s the fifth-largest island in the continental United States.

The island was named for Joseph Whidbey, a member of the  Royal Navy who accompanied Peter Puget as one of the first explorers of the area in 1792. The first permanent European settler was Colonel Isaac N. Ebey, in 1850. In 1857 Ebey was killed and beheaded by Haida Indians.

I’ll be sharing more photos from our Northwest Island Adventure in the next couple of days. I don’t have a lot of photos because we were in the middle of a Pineapple express with lots of precipitation.

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

  1. My trip up there and to Friday Harbor was excellent and I love that ferry system. Excellent photos my friend 🙂 it brings back fond memories 🙂

  2. You visited one of my favorite places, Whidbey Island….I wonder if you stopped at the Greenbank Farm for some homemade pie and other goodies…they have some really delicious berry wine!

  3. Those are the most beautiful mountains! Your day had to be filled with fun and enchantment! I enjoy seeing your travels around Northern Washington and seeing old familiar places! Thanks!

  4. We always laugh at how a waitress in Seattle once told us that Whidbey Island is the largest island in the world… her world was small, I guess. Thanks for the wave!

  5. Ellen, I have just read your last two posts – both have beautiful photographs. I love that painting on the door of the store! It looks like it would have wonderful things inside. The Inn is just so charming. I know you had fun. laurie
