A Day on Whidbey Island

After my time on the Olympic Peninsula, I made my way slowly to Lummi Island to visit friends.  On the way, I spent a day on Whidbey Island.

Getting to Whidbey Island

In order to reach Whidbey Island from the Olympic Peninsula, I took the Port Townsend-Coupeville Ferry.  Having only ridden the Washington ferry system one time ten years ago, I popped online for a refresher.

Fortunately, I did.  Apparently, this is an extremely popular ferry route and reservations are recommended.  I had to get the 6:30am ferry because the others were sold out!  It costs around $15 for a car and person which is paid at the toll booth.

The ferry was enormous!  Somehow, I lucked out and got to park on the very front next to a semi-truck.  I enjoyed a lovely view on calm seas as we spent 30 minutes crossing the Puget Sound.
