NEW LODGING – February 23, 2015

What a great way to start the week, a beautiful, crisp, clear, morning walk around my wee town of Coupeville. Get your shoes on and I’ll show you around.

First stop “Popeye’s House”. Not really but to me it looks like the kind of place Popeye would live. I just love the mist on the water and the contrasting sunrise on Mount Baker and the shadowed house in the foreground.

Just as I walked into town I noticed the chef at Knead and Feed was preparing some yummy pastries soon to be baked and served to waiting customers. You can not imagine how wonderful the smell is of the fresh baking bread and cinnamon rolls drifting across the street along with the mornings fresh air. I do believe I’m in heaven!

I thought I’d share a little of the weekend with you. We went to Oak Harbor for the Whidbey Playhouse performance of Monty Python’s “Spamalot”. It’s the first time we had been to the playhouse and what a nice little theater it is. The show was so funny I cried most of the way through it. We’ll definitely be going back.

We also stopped by a grand opening, open house, here in Coupeville. It’s a new vacation rental called “Float On Inn”. It’s really lovely with a private entrance and a fantastic view of Mount Baker, Penn Cove and the Coupeville Wharf. Winter rates are $125 a night and summer rates are $150 with a minimum two night stay. It would be a very nice place to stay on your next visit to Coupeville. You can call for reservations at 425-691-7132.

Have a great week ahead and well walk again soon.

MY SISTER IS HERE

I’m posting a little late today because I’ve been spending time with my sister Diane who’s visiting from Spokane. She went on my walk this morning and we had a nice time. Here are some of the things we saw but of course there was much more that I’ll share at a later date.

This is Diane.

While here she’s staying at Cottage on the Cove. It’s a wonderful historic building right on Front Street and sits out over the water. The views are spectacular and here’s what Diane got to wake up to this morning.

We stopped by last evening for a visit before dinner at Toby’s Tavern. Looking east from the cottage’s deck I spotted this nice photo of what we call the “Popeye House” with a sailboat and kayak’s in the foreground.

Needless to say you need reservations to say at the cottage so book early.

Over the next few weeks you’ll be seeing a lot of The Haunting of Coupeville. As I mentioned last week the scarecrows are coming to town and we spotted quite a number of new ones this morning, here they are.

Central Whidbey Cooperative Preschool, The Coupeville Garden Club and Whidbey Isle Yarn.

That should keep you busy for a while. Thanks for walking with me and sharing it with my sister. Have a great week ahead!
