In all fairness, I must issue this disclaimer. There were two buildings that I did not enter—Sultan and Darrington. They are both open Monday through Saturday, and last Sunday was the only day that Tom and I could make it to both of these far-flung libraries. Even though I didn't go through the doors, I am still going to count them.
Karen, on the other hand, only counts libraries she has actually gone inside, so she still has to visit two more before her goal is met. That's fine. She's younger than I am; she can give more time to this project if she'd like.
The Mukilteo library is on a large plot of land, providing a natural setting and lots of light. Surrounding most of the building is a wildlife garden which features some lovely Northwest plants.
Public art can be found at all Sno-Isle libraries. I especially liked these two pieces at Mukilteo.
We don't just go to libraries, Karen and I. We like to explore little communities and find good coffee, so we went to The Red Cup on the hill above the ferry landing, where we met a couple of old gals who were in desperate need of their morning java.
It was a fun day with a dear friend, a goal accomplished, and one more adventure to add to our memory banks!
