Whidbey Island

Somehow I was able to convince D that it would be good to get out of the house on Sunday afternoon. Maybe this weekend's NFL pairings weren't that interesting or maybe the couch was getting uncomfortable? We hopped the ferry to Whidbey, had pizza in Freeland, and headed for Ebey's Landing, hoping for the promised sun breaks.

As it turned out, we couldn't even see the beach from the top of the bluff. But it's still one of the best coastal hikes on Puget Sound. Then it was off to DQ in Oak Harbor, a quick stop at the Deception Pass bridge to peer down into the darkness and the fog, and then a loop around March Point, where we got to see Venus and Jupiter and a crescent moon among the bright lights of the refineries (the clouds finally cleared). And we still made it back to Seattle for dinner at Dick's.
