During the lovely weekend on Whidbey I recently mentioned, Joe, Nina, and I went on a little hike at the amazingly STUNNING Ebey's Landing. If you are in the area, I cannot recommend a visit strongly enough. The trail from the parking lot winds up from the beach and onto a high bluff. Your walk is bordered on one side by woods (or farmland at the beginning) and the other by a steep cliff that overlooks Puget Sound and the Olympic mountains. It's overwhelmingly gorgeous-- I think I had a smile on my face the whole time.
I wish I had a "real" photo of the view from the top-- the only one I took was on my phone because I don't like dragging my heavy-ass camera on hikes-- but you can view some snapshots on my Instagram feed. (Oh, and I just found this youtube video that shows the amazing view.)
The shot below was taken on the beach before heading up the trail.
And the photo below....well, it has nothing at all to do with Whidbey or Ebey's Landing. I took it on our leisurely drive home. I have a thing for old barns. :)
