A Weekend Getaway at Ebey's Landing

Karren had been wanting a weekend date with just the two of us for a while. My Aunt Ilene volunteered to take Sonya (and ended up spoiling her), so Karren and I visited Whidbey Island. We stayed two nights at an awesome Bed and Breakfast in Coupeville, Anchorage Inn Bed and Breakfast. It was a great value, the food was tasty, and the inn keepers were awesome! In the evenings, we watched movies and played Carcassonne on Karren's I-Phone.

On Saturday, we explored Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve. First, we visited Fort Casey State Park where we hiked a bit, learned about composting, and played around the Fort.

Afterwards, we spent the rest of the day hiking the Ebey's Prairie and Bluff Trails (5 miles total).

Although it was overcast, it was gorgeous and we were happy to get some extended time to spend as a couple.

Stunning scenery and a stunning wife .... what more can a man ask for?!?

Here we are at the end of our hike of Bluff Trail ... see how happy we are?

Verbort 2010

As per tradition, we attending a sausage festival near Forest Grove, Oregon. It is a delectable feast of Saurkraut, homemade sausage, pie, and milk...all served in an elementary school cafeteria. Cam went a little overboard and spent 1/3 of my month's grocery budget on sausage for the freezer. Yikes!
