Washington State has a few islands to enjoy. One of our favorites is Whidbey Island. The Bible camp our kids have attended and served as directors at is on Whidbey Island. When we have out of state company we try to include a trip to Whidbey Island. Our favorite town on the island is Langley. The Star store and the Saratoga Inn is in the little town of Langley. We stayed at the Saratoga Inn when we were attending a wedding on Whidbey.
We ate at Gerry’s kitchen in Freeland and had a great breakfast and I’m sad to say that they are now closed. There are a nice little collection of antique shops in this town.
Another town we like to walk through and eat their great Penn Cove Mussels is Coupeville. This visitor information center is in Coupeville. The town’s Main shopping street, Front Street, borders Penn Cove.
I had to include a nice bowl of mussels. We had these at Front Street Grill, Coconut Green Curry Mussels…delicious.
And here’s a photo of Penn Cove from Front Street.
I’m linking up with Lesley’s Signs Signs weekly meme.

Great sights! The last one and the dog are great. Looks like a great place. Tom The Backroads Traveller
Gorgeous! And peaceful, too, I would imagine. I would just love to visit a place like Whidbey Island for a week. No cell phone, no computer, no TV…just me and all the sights to see and peace to drink in! This is going on my bucket list!
Whidbey Island is a place we’ve driven by (the signs to it.) Looks like a fun place to explore.
Whidbey Island has some great signs and it looks like a charming place to visit!
(I soooo hate when a favorite restaurant closes.)
Islands do tend to beckon, don’t they?! Sadly, I do not enjoy the ferry ride. How long is the ride to get to Whidbey Island or does a bridge connect to the Mainland? It looks charming and quaint there.
Vee, you can get onto the island without a ferry ride from the north. The ferry ride from the south is quite shore 20 minutes or under if a pregnant woman about to deliver is on board.
We are going to have to make a point of getting down there soon. It looks like a charming town – I think I could spend some happy hours poking in and out of antique shops.
It looks like a charming, quaint place. And curry mussels – never had them with curry, but I’m sure it is delicious!
