I is for Island

Just got back from a vacation to the islands in Puget Sound off the coast of Washington.  It was a wonderful trip.  The weather was idyllic.  The scenery was amazing.  Food was great!

My last post was for H,  so Don said the next one had to be about Islands.  Isn’t that great timing!  So here are a few memories of our island adventure.

It rains a lot, so the flowers are just gorgeous.  Just sun for us–no rain.  How perfect could it get?

Below is a small church in East Sound right by the water.  The side yard was lovely.

 

We enjoyed walking around town.

We drove up to the top of Mount Constitution and Don climbed to the top of this tower.

This trip had been  Don’s  dream for many years.  He  often recalled his summer on Orcas Island as a teenager back in 1951.  He always wanted to visit again, and it finally happened.  It is wonderful to travel to  places in our past, whether it’s an actual trip,  or a walk through an old museum, or simply to pour over precious family photo albums.

Where would your memories take you?
