Anniversary Trip – The End

I feel like Part 3 just ended without any closure, but there’s really not much else to tell. Thursday after our dinner in town was another relaxing evening and Friday we came home. The End.

Anniversary Trip – Part 3

[Written Thursday, April 18] When last I typed we were sitting in Starbuck’s and contemplating another try at the park we couldn’t find to see waterfalls. We found our way to the park. It was the same one we’d stopped at, but maintenance crews were in front of the trail entrance so we didn’t see…

Whidbey Island: A Photographic Tour – The Beach

As I mentioned in my last post, I took over 1200 pictures. Some great, some horrible, most tolerable. Don’t worry. I won’t share them all. That would be like going to great Uncle Horace’s house and watching his vacation slides. Great for insomniacs, bad for blog readers. I am going to break them up, though.…

The Party’s Over…

Last night I caught the red eye out of SeaTac for a non-stop to Philly where I landed around 7:00 this morning. Which was 4:00 AM to my Pacific Time Zone adjusted self. Thankfully I have nothing to do today other than sleep, readjust and download over 1200 pictures Precious blessed me with. Not 1200…

A Little Teaser

We arrived home from our trip to Arkansas Sunday night and I’m leaving again in the morning for a short girls’ weekend out west. When I get back and have my bearings I’ll tell you all about both trips. In the meantime, here are a couple of collages of things we saw while on the…
