Whidbey Island, Washington, USA
Several years ago Ray and I vacationed on Whidbey Island. It's a small island off of the coast of Washington. It has some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen. It was about this time of year and though it was chilly and often rainy, it was a wonderful place to just put up our feet and rest.
The little cottage that we rented had all of the comforts of home and was very quaint. It was sitting right on a bay and the balcony extended over the water. You can see the edge of the balcony in the first two photos.
The rest of the photos are scenes from around the island.
The Olympic Range is to the South of the Island.
This last one was taken on the West side of the Island. The wind is blowing fiercely and causing the waves to crash against the shore and send the foam clear across the roadway.
Whidbey Island offers the best of both worlds, a few small towns, plenty of solitude, mountain views and ocean. What could be better?
I am joining Watery Wednesday. I didn't find anything for the challenge. But this Island is the perfect place for a romantic getaway for Valentine's Day, if you are looking for one.
Have a wonderful day!
