My sister came out from Kitsap County. We made a visit to Whidbey Beer Works to check out their huge selection of imports and Northwest Microbrews. We stashed our selections in a cooler at home, then took a little road trip out towards Skagit Valley. Last time we had a beer at La Conner. This time we went on to the The Old Edison Pub, where I enjoyed a Melvin IPA.

We had a good visit and I shared more of the compost from the pile we recently tore down.




Photo- Not from late December. It’s the time of year where the days are short and it can be the same color grey at 10 AM and at 2:30 PM and all the hours in between. A time of year to remember what it looks like when there is more light outside. This is a Hill Road photo- taken during the month of May.

Don’t miss Village Pizzeria– just up the hill.

High above the water. Great views, great service, great food. Full bar.

We’ll be back.

We found a new spot in Seaside. Luann was our bartender. We were very happy with our visit on a day that was still nice enough to sit outside.

U Street Clam Dip- loved it:

See you next time.

An early start from Whidbey Island gets us to the busy seaport town of Astoria in time for lunch.

A nice place to stop in.
