This past weekend, the Pacific Northwest was blessed with sunshine...lots of sunshine. And I can't think of a more fitting way to enjoy the beautiful weather than a day trip to Whidbey Island with my hubby and in-laws. It was filled with all things lovely: 2lbs of Penn Cove mussels, a walk through a rhododendron garden, drinks with a stunning view, a scenic drive through the countryside, and making memories; for those quintessential Northwest rainy days ahead, when we just need a little reminder as to why we trudge through the nasty weather year after year.
But, of course, it's all worth it once the sunshine comes. Because there's really nothing quite like summertime in the PNW.
