A winter afternoon at Fort Ebey.


Out on the trails of Fort Ebey.


Nice enough today for a good outdoor work session & a fire later. We’ll take it for a January day.

An offseason visit to Fort Ebey on Tuesday afternoon.


No crowds today at Fort Ebey

Stormy surf out there today.

Three or four feet off the ground.

This one is past its prime, but it gives an idea of how large some varieties of mushrooms may get at Fort Ebey.

Sunny when you get out in the open.

Ferry Traffic Leaving Coupeville Terminal Routed Away From Coupeville


Mount Baker from Oak Harbor

Oak Harbor scene

“Keystone terminal gives way to ‘Coupeville’ ferry”

“The name change will help eliminate confusion visitors may find when they research ways to travel to Whidbey Island.”

Coupeville/Penn Cove is on the eastern shore of Whidbey Island- no ferry link to Port Townsend exists there.

Don’t book a bed and breakfast stay in Coupeville and plan to walk from the ferry terminal to your accommodations.
