We are in Coupeville

I met Judy at the Seattle airport. I didn’t have much traffic until I got to Tacoma and then it was creepy crawling all the way to the airport. I had about 15 minutes to spare before Judy got off the plane. We recognized each other right away.

We drove up I-5 through Seattle to catch the ferry to Whidbey Island.

Here is Judy photographing the view. It was very windy.

I think this is Mt. Olympus from the ferry.

We drove about 25 miles from the ferry to Coupeville and found our delightful home for the week. We are right on Penn Cove, famous for it’s mussels. In fact we had many with our dinner. We shared an appetizer of mussels and then we had this fabulous pesto encrusted halibut on mussel risotto. Oh my goodness, yum!

Judy and i have been blogging and e-mailing for quite awhile. We are now talking and talking. We have so much in common. I am so excited because she brought me one of her Complexitees. It is gorgeous. I can’t wait to wear it. I will post a photo later. We are quite tired from our day and excited about our workshop tomorrow.

    I love Coupeville! Taught there a few years ago and had the best time – esp. since I was there during mussel festival in March. I am green that you and Judy are getting to have so much fun together – I wish I were there with you both!

    I am green with envy. I have taken two classes at CAC, and love Whidby Island and the whole Puget Sound area. Have some mussels on me, Gerrie!

    The mountain you see from the Mukilteo-Clinton ferry is Mount Baker, located in Whatcom County. Looks like you had a nice day for a ferry ride!
