Hike: Ebey’s Landing, Whidbey Island: a place to run, see Eagles and picnic. 

A Californian transplant in Washington, I am always open to a hike with water views and the wind on my back.  Two hour getaway from Seattle, Ebey’s Landing is a natural historic preserve on Whidbey Island – an itty bitty but big on glory and views National Park that overlooks Puget Sound. Some hikes are one time deals – others like this “walk” will require repeat visits. When we reached the top, an eagle glided with linger to take in the wind whilst we were slacked jaw with how close we were.  

Pack a picnic to enjoy along the shore. Requires a discovery pass $30 annual or you can park along the road sans pass.

We stopped by the Lavendar Wind Farm to take in the sights, aroma and get some plantings. 

To top off the day, a gray whale show on the ferry ride home..
