Back to Whidbey
Spent a few of my precious spring break days over on Whidbey Island. (Yes, we've been there before, but we had such a nice time it seemed worth repeating.)
Packed the car with all we'd need:
Crossed onto the island at Deception Pass:
Stopped at Knead & Feed for some pie:
Not the best restaurant ever (and do *not* ask them to split a check! yikes!), but the pie (marion berry) was pretty good:
Oh, for those of you following Emily on Twitter and/or facebook, sorry about the cross-posting . . .
Got to our hotel, the Inn at Langley, and started to relax.
Here's one of the many things I love about that place:
Speaking of reading material, I was super excited to have time to read a couple of papers that weren't written by students while Emily hit the spa:
Also watched some basketball there.
KU ended up losing, but we had a toast to their unexpectedly successful and enjoyable season.
One day was sunny, so we did a bike ride, which was a great way to see some of the scenery and cute small towns on the island. (Again, apologies for the cross-posting . . .)
At Maxwelton Beach
Next day it rained, but even that looked nice.
Yes, we spoiled ourselves. Yes, it was great. Yes, I do have a syllabus to prepare for tomorrow. Cheers.
