Wonderful Whidbey Weekend

Mike and the dogs and I spent a wonderful weekend at our friends Mia and Ron’s cabin on Whidbey Island. Spending any time on Penn Cove is a treat. Spending a gorgeous sunny weekend like this is always something that I’ll remember for months.

For the most part the water was calm, the sun was out, the air was warm and the company was fabulous. The bald eagle(s) were fishing in the cove, the herons were fishing in the shallows, the geese were traveling through and the hummingbirds were buzzing.

We spent time paddling in our kayaks – all the way to Coupeville and back this morning, mountain biking, cooking and generally relaxing. The dogs played fetch until they couldn’t fetch any more. Mike and the guys played horseshoes and the four year old bossed us all around.

And I learned something new. Did you know that crabs actually have sex? Like missionary position sex?

Apparently they do. And this is the time of year that they do it. While gliding slowly through the still shallows today we say numerous crab couples doing the samba. Very funny!

How was your holiday weekend?
