This February Jean treated us to a weekend getaway on Whidbey Island. It’s the place I’ve been looking forward to visiting ever since Jean wrote about it on her blog.
The ferry crossing Puget Sound was amazing! We drove on with Jean’s Mini Cooper. More than 200 tons of cars, plus the ferry which weighs 4,384 tons and 1,500 passengers, it defies logic how a steel-hull vessel can float. It baffles me!
Next to flying, a ride on a ferry is the best thing. I’ve never been on a cruise, but I’ve been on plenty of ferries and boats in my life. I love looking out at the sea.
Jean rented a fabulous A-frame cottage, I’d love to live here!
I’m wearing my new big heart sweater I bought at Drizzle & Shine. This loose-knit style is ultra comfortable and great to relax with a cup of tea by the fireplace on a cool evening on the island.
We spent the next day on a fun adventure in the little town of Langley. I was delighted to see a colony of bunnies roaming freely around the area. No need for lawn mowers or fertilizer, the bunnies are keeping the grounds meticulously trimmed. Apparently, they are domesticated rabbits that escaped from the fair several years ago.
Relaxing by the sea with a beautiful view.
Always time for some shopping …
and thrift shopping …
It’s a very artistic town with art everywhere. After a delicious vegan dinner to celebrate, we stayed until evening to enjoy the annual Art Walk.
Then back to the cottage to relax by the fire of a woodstove and watch a movie.
I didn’t want to leave.
This is the kind of home I could move right in. It’s my dream, not a new dream, but an old dream rekindled.
Yes, these are snow flurries and we were about to experience our first snowfall in Seattle–the kind of weather we were trying to escape from when we left Ontario. C’est la vie!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
