Whidbey Island, WA: 10/22 – 11/16/20

It was wonderful to be back on Whidbey Island where we would spend the next few weeks staying with Scott’s parents at their new home in Freeland, WA. The last time we had been here was in July of 2019, to help them move from Langley to Freeland. When we left, there was a multitude of unpacked boxes. Now, the house was in tip-top shape! I particularly liked their sign in the backyard.

Their property abuts a golf course. This is their neighbor’s yard.

During our stay, we enjoyed many delicious meals together. Scott’s mom can cook up a storm! It was very serious business.

Sue had dug out one of the bushes on the property that had died. She has an artistic eye for flair, and saw the beauty in the dead tree. Her vision was to remove the dead leaves and then hang effects on its bare branches.

Larry, Scott, and Sue worked together to prepare the base for display.

Our sister-in-law works at a local winery, Holmes Harbor Cellars. She has the “fun” job of serving samples of wine to happy customers. I walked one mile from Sue and Larry’s home to the winery. Delightfully, I enjoyed a sampling of both red and white wines. If you are in the area, I highly recommend that you check this place out.

In addition to hiking on the island at Ebey’s Landing, one day we took a drive off Whidbey Island to Olympic National Park.

Our trailer stayed parked at Holmes Harbor Rod and Gun Club for almost a month while we lived with Sue and Larry.

The time always comes when we have to say goodbye until next time. We will be back. We love you!
