Whidbey Island is my favorite place to be in stormy weather. Sheltered in the warm and cozy in the cabin, I can watch as the sea and sky both turn a steely grey, and rain and wind lash the windows. Luckily for me, we had perfect stormy fall weather on our last minute weekend trip to the island. Before heading to the cabin, we stopped in Langley for coffee and some bookstore browsing, and I picked up the perfect weekend reading material. For the first time I can remember, we hadn’t packed a ridiculous amount of food, and we wound up having a dinner of chips, salsa, and breakfast sausages. Oh, and plenty of red wine. Not sure what we’d been thinking when we packed food for the weekend, but we survived!
