A Scenic Roadtrip!
Once in a while, we like to give our feet and legs some needed rest, so we made a road trip and saw eight recommended highlights advertised by the “Scenic Washington, byways and road trips” brochure.
Deception Pass State Park, WA
Oak Grove Smith Park, WA
In Oak Park, the largest town on Whidbey Island, we went to Smith Park to understand what it must have been like when these Garry oak trees were still abundant. Some of the approximate 150 oaks in the park are over 400 years old!
Fort Casey Historical State Park
In the 1890s, Fort Casey was a state of a military defense system made of concrete with modern weaponry. Within 30 years, the fort lost its defense mechanism due to more effective technologies like long-distance guns on warships and planes being able to carry heavy bombs. Hence, Fort Casey was abandoned.
Our last visit was to the “Village by the Sea,” the charming town of Langley. After wandering around, through the streets and along the shore, we sat down at a cozy restaurant to celebrate hubby’s birthday with a nice dinner. A perfect ending to a day cruising the picturesque Whidbey Scenic Isle Way.
