We have been as busy as beavers. There are so many great little towns to visit in the area. It is hard to believe the beauty of this place and the fantastic farms etc. Everywhere we go we see more farms. Most have wonderful organic produce and the prices are outstanding. We got 6 ears of fresh corn just picked for $1.00. Fresh red plums right off the trees, donut peaches, avocados, awesome tomatoes, cabbage, peppers of every color and on and on and on. One market had garlic still on the stems and broccoli just picked. It is easy to eat great in this state for sure. We asked for eggs at one farm and she came back with one still warm. :-)
We visited an awesome island last week called Whidbey Island. It is huge! As a matter of fact it is the largest island in the continental U.S. We drove over 100 miles just visiting part of it. We never made it to the last few towns but plan to go back for sure. I took pictures of a lot of the towns to give you at least the flavor of the island. It would take a week to totally explore the whole island. They are having a special farm tour next weekend where 16 different farms are opening up for farm visits. These are all on Whidbey Island. They have everything from bee farms with honey to lavender flower farms. We are not sure if we will make it yet, but it sure would be cool. There are also a ton of state parks in the area. We have made it to one so far and it was fantastic. We plan to take a few days just to visit the parks in the area.
I am adding a ton of pictures to catch up on all the places we have seen. I hope you enjoy them much! More later from Washington.
