If I don't break up my Friday adventure to Whidbey Island into multiple blog posts it will just be too long and photo heavy.
I woke up Friday morning in a total need for a quick get-away. I have
got a lot of flak over the years for my last minute lack of planning
adventures. There are some things that would have gone better had I
planned this one, but it still turned out OK.
Nim was all for my lack of planning until we got into
Issaquah and the hail, thunder, and lightening started.
My new "plan" was to head north to the ferry, and if the thunder and lightening hadn't ceased I would come up with a new plan. If nothing else we had the food part set.
As it turned out Mukilteo wasn't too too bad and we got on the ferry. Nim has never been on one before.
He did some people and water watching.
I did some homework (part of my compromise for blowing off the day - nice that I selected quite possibly the shortest ferry route ever).
We met a cute little dog named LuLu (clearly an experienced ferry traveler) and shared some of Nim's PowerPup Nutritional Bars from the Farmer's Market last night which probably was her caloric allowance for the day.
Then Nim became acquainted with the ferry birds.
He growled. He tried to reason. He got a little scared.
We landed on Whidbey Island which was threatening and dark (but not raining) and headed towards Langley and The Putney Woods.
