Whidbey Island

Today we took the Mukilteo ferry to Whidbey Island, the largest island in Washington. 
This was our first time on a car ferry. It was a quick ride, but we had time to go above deck and even feed the seagulls that followed us across the sound.
Once there, we drove to the town of Langley where we spent the morning exploring the shops, galleries and trails. 
We stopped at Lone Lake and Useless Bay for some sight seeing before heading to Coupeville. We scored, making it with minutes to spare to the final day of their open market season. 
We enjoyed sandwhiches at the lunch box stand, partaking in the smoked mozzarella, sundried tomato and basil treats. 
After lunch we headed to Deception Pass State Park. It was absolutely beautiful. We hiked down under the bridge to the cliff side. We sat and watched boats pass by and enjoyed the view for a while before continuing north and back around to Seattle. 

My favorites moments from today were sitting with Ben overlooking the water and evergreens at Deception Pass and noticing a large bald eagle resting on drift wood a few feet from us and quietly trying to get bens attention so he could enjoy it with me.
