We returned to the cottage after our hike. The day had cleared but there were a few interesting clouds so I knew it would be a great sunset. I walked out to the shoreline and watched the sun set to the west over Vancouver Island.
The two days went quickly and it was time to leave. We decided to catch the 11:05 ferry so we cleaned up and left the cottage with the goal of getting to the ferry about 1 or so before the sailing. Of course, it took much less so we took one more drive through the farm land before getting to the ferry about 1:15 minutes early. It was Monday and the ferry didn’t fill so we could have waited a bit – but I would have stressed over it.
What a glorious day! It was crystal clear and we had a gorgeous view of Mt. Baker and the northern cascades. We got into Anacortes about noon and headed for Skagit Brewery for lunch and a brew. The perfect end to a great fall/winter getaway.
