-- sudden notice, but I'm flying to Seattle tomorrow

Hoping this is me in a few days...

Dan's in Washington state on a business trip and we realized I could fly out for free on a frequent flyer extra plane ticket. Yay! I'm leaving in the morning. Will try to keep up with NaBloPoMo via phone if I don't have internet access. Final destination: Whidbey Island (in the Puget Sound, not too far from Vancouver, Canada).

I was here six years ago and absolutely LOVED it. Here are some of Dan's photos from that last trip:
Whale watching, can you tell I was a wee bit chilly?

Bizzaro statue in a strip mall parking lot. wtf?
I am totally going to look for this,
see if it's still there.


Hiking on Third Beach, Olympic peninsula.

Sunset over the Pacific. I love the wildness of the shore here. Having grown up with the Jersey shore's very tame and developed beaches, I am drawn like a magnet to the opposite side of the country with its magnificent cliffs, jagged rocks and secluded coastline. I love the Northwest.

Perched on an overlook,
writing at Deception Pass State Park.


It's 11:30pm, maybe I should start packing.

HAVE FUN! I love Whidby Island. Some of the best scuba diving I have ever done!

I LOVE THAT AREA! I'v spent a total of about 2 weeks up there and I never saw a cloud in the sky. The result is that my impression of the Puget Sound area is that it's close to my idea of Heaven (it's tied with Tuscany). I know that I would have a hard time not seeing the sun if I actually lived in that area, but I need to visit more often!
