What a glorious weekend! I headed up to the Island (Whidbey Island) to visit with my cousins this weekend. Sunlight was beaming from all around – dancing off of the Puget Sound water as I took the ferry from the mainland to the Island. Skies were blue and clear so you could see the snow packed Olympic Mountains to the West, Mt Baker to the North, Cascade Mountains to the East, and Mt Rainier to the South.
Temps were also hovering around 65-73 during the day which just topped off this beautiful weekend!
So as we (Washatonians) get sunshine and no rain – we go outside. We decided on a nice walk around the farm land of Coupeville (where the cousins live) with some rolling hills, cows mooing in the distance, hawks spreading their wings in flight, cyclists swishing by, and of course Lily girl sporting her summer dress – or tutu as one of my cousins calls it.
Lily's nose was twitching all weekend with the different smells the Island had to offer. Don't you just love her summer dress?
Our little walked turned into two miles!
My cousin even commented that this was the first time she had seen me walk at this pace and this long in awhile – especially without bitchin' the whole way about how my feet hurt or I was out of breath. Now that's a non scale victory!!
I totally felt wonderful after this invigorating walk! My Inner Skinny Chick was jumping for joy with all the pure love to every cell in my body!
