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.
