There's a Place for Us--Somewhere....

Over on Whidbey Island, there is a little state park where we used to take our kids when they were little. When I was a Cub Scout leader and a Girl Scout leader, this special place would be our destination. I always felt like it was undiscovered. We hadn't been there in a while; it had been closed for a time because of fallen trees. This is a beautiful place of old growth trees and a trail to a pristine beach. Last week, the kids and I visited our old favorite place and I was happy to see it is still relatively undiscovered. From our house, we see the inside of Whidbey Island. Well, this is what it looks like looking out to Puget Sound from the other side of Whidbey--the view the island blocks from us. This is where the ships head out to sea and where the orcas swim.

And to those of you out there suffering from the heat, it was a chilly beach visit but entirely pleasant.
