Saturday we went to lunch at Ivar's Mukilteo Landing to celebrate Marilee's birthday. What a glorious day it was! The first truly sunny day in ages, the sky was clear and the mountains -- Rainier to the south, Baker to the north, the Olympics to the west and the Cascades to the east -- were magnificent.
Ferry lines were long and the boats were full as every 20 minutes a ferry arrived from Whidbey Island and reloaded to return. Here the Kittitas is headed to Whidbey with Mt Baker in the background. I've never seen the beach so crowded nor so much activity on the streets and docks.
It sure beat staying home cleaning bathrooms!
