Beautiful Whidbey Island

Husband and I took Grandmother, Motherinlaw and Things one and two on a ferry ride to Whidbey Island in Puget Sound. It was warm but mostly overcast (surprise surprise) but we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. The ferry ride was, as always, a big hit with the boys.

Husband and Motherinlaw enjoyed the view from the restauraunt where we had lunch.

Grandmother and I on the beach in Freeland.

Thing Two caught a tiny crab and we watched it crawling around on his hands before we put it back on the beach.
This was a very nice family day and I only wished for booze once - a very good sign. The car ride was complaint-less which is a minor miracle with two old ladies and two 12 year old boys so I am going to call it a success all the way around.

That looks like a fun outing--and that crab is amazing. I love finding little creatures like that (as long as they're not IN my house or something like that.)

I am finally back from vacay, and let me tell you--I was a little lost w/o the internet! Sad but true.

I might suggest carrying the photo for a visual if your going around telling people you caught crabs on Whidbey…otherwise they might suggest you try Orcas the next time…
