Having lived in Washington State my whole life, I’m a bit embarrassed about how infrequently I get out of my neighborhood and take advantage of all the natural beauty in this region. It’s not that I haven’t wanted to, but getting out of the city is difficult when you don’t have a car!
Nick and I got to go to Whidbey Island for the first time a couple of months ago when a few friends were heading there to do a half marathon. We tagged along for a wonderful weekend of cooking, hanging out at the beach, cheering them on during their race, and running through some of the most wondrous landscapes I’ve ever seen. Since then we’ve also been to Bainbridge Island (though I forgot my camera), and we’re hoping to try and hike in the Olympic National Park or visit the San Juan Islands next. Any recommendations?
