Mt. Ranier, Whitbey Island and Seattle

On the way to Whitbey Island, we stopped off for lunch at the Harmon Brewery and Eatery.  We really enjoy checking out the local brew pubs in any area that we visit and they make nice places to stop for lunch.  This place was a great place to stop for lunch and a brew.  Below are some of the beers that they had on tap.

We took a car ferry across to Whitbey Island.  It was a fun little experience.

On Whitbey Island we stayed in Coupeville.  Whitbey Island is 15 by 35 miles long and 1.5 to 12 miles wide.  Coupeville is one of the towns that make up Whitbey Island.  We stayed at a bed and breakfast called the Lovejoy Inn and had one room in the main house and one in the carriage house.  The carriage house had a small deck attached to it so we spent a lot of time on it just drinking wine/beer and enjoying the view from the deck.

The town of Coupeville is very quaint and the views are simple awesome.  Here are some pictures that we took of the harbor area.

We all love lighthouses so we visited the Admiralty Head Lighthouse.  The lighthouse stood watch over the entrance to Puget Sound and guided sailing ships towards their designation.  Today it looks over Fort Casey towards the Olympic Mountains, the Port Townsend Ferry and Admiralty Inlet.

We also love lavender so when we found out that the Lavender Wind Farm was on the Island, we just had to go see it as well.  I’m not too sure the guys enjoyed it quite as much as we did, but they found some hops on the farm and got a kick out seeing that.

Of course, we had to visit the brewery on the Island.  It was called Flyers Brewery as the Whitbey Island Naval Air Station is right there.

We enjoyed this restful Island.  Next week join me as we go to our last stop on this trip; Seattle!

  1. This was such a beautiful, restful vacation. Coupeville was very walkable and charming. I enjoyed the slower pace. Your photos bring it all back!
