Yesterday we took the Colorado relatives to Whidbey Island, checking off one of Ranae's "must do's." We met Dave's brother and sister-in-law near Deception Pass, and all spent the day together.

Before walking across Deception Pass bridge, we stopped for a couple of pounds of fresh cooked shrimp to share.

Then we walked and explored. And took pictures. And laughed together.

And then we grabbed a picnic table down at the water's edge, where we could watch boats cruise by while we ate.

Lunch was at a favorite bar in Coupeville, which was crazy busy today. But we were happy to pull up stools to the bar, and have lunch there. That's us, reflected in the mirror behind the bar.

Don't you just love taking photographs of family, and making memories together?

After lunch we spent time on one of our favorite beaches. The kids took off for a long walk north, and we went up the road to find a geocache. And I found some driftwood to bring home, including a new piece to shape into a walking stick this winter.

They also loved climbing in and around Fort Casey. (I did, too.)

And we did an earthcache there. Cool.

Then we had to say goodbye to the island, and hopped a Washington State ferry back to the mainland (check another item off Ranae's list). We met up with Tom & Val's daughter and son-in-law for dinner.

And then we went home to crash.

It was a very good day.
