Weekend on Whidbey
Our weekend on Whidbey Island was awesome – I love that it’s so close to Seattle yet feels like it’s so far away (I’d say the same thing, frankly, about any of the islands up there). We took off Saturday morning, driving up to Mukilteo and catching the ferry to Clinton:
We then drove into Langley and got some lunch at the Village Pizzeria. After lunch, we wandered around the various cute shops, like the Star Store and Chef’s Pantry. In the afternoon, we checked into the Inn at Langley which is situated right on the water, each room’s balcony with a 180-degree view of the water.

In the evening, we enjoyed the 6-course meal by Matt Costello in the Chef’s Kitchen
at the Inn. Literally, the kitchen was right there so we could watch the chef prepare our meal. The meal was delicious!
The next day, after checking out of the hotel, we drove up to Coupeville, which is situated right on Penn Cove so we could enjoy a lunch of Penn Cove Mussels! Pretty lip smacking good….
We continued our drive up and walked around the beach in Deception Pass State Park before heading over to the scary bridge to walk across. The pedestrian part was only 3 feet wide as cars zoomed past us! Nevertheless, the view was breathtaking.
