Who new the South Whidbey Assembly of God sponsored our annual 3rd of July fireworks in Freeland. And does anyone care? I just like fireworks and having the celebration on the 3rd suite me fine as I can't get enough fireworks. Alas this year we will miss for the 2nd year in a row (last year watched awesome show from the water in Poulsbo). We will be seeing what St. Simons GA has to offer.

Good coffee, food, and location and on occasion great music!

I like checking the ferry cam in order to try to minimize the wait up the hill. Nothing beats driving straight onto the ferry (except maybe being the last car on the ferry).
Caught this gorgeous photo on the Whidbey Camano Islands tourist site. What an incredible neighbor to have. Seems like we should start planning to visit for the autumn Orca season!
When you live on an island, spending time on the beach beomes part of the fabric of life (otherwise why live on an island). Whidbey has so many beaches to explore. I've been here several years and barely scratched the surface. I guess once I discover places I really enjoy, I tend to go back to them by default (creature of habit syndrome). It also doesn't hurt that I have a beach yards from my back door here on Sandy Point.
Tasting wines made using local as well as Eastern WA grapes is a fun way to spend an afternoon.
Welcome to my exploration into building a world all about my home, Whidbey Island, WA. Please be patient as I slowly share my thoughts and experiences here about one of the hidden gems of WA.
