Work has already started to get hectic, an ominous sign for the busy spring season to come, and as the days grow longer I've been desperately looking forward to the arrival of Daylight Savings Time, when there will be enough daylight for post-work walks in the evening. After several frosty days during the week, we had a blissfully warm and sunny weekend. The timing couldn't have been better, since Andy and I had plans to spend the weekend on Whidbey Island. Since the tides were crazy high during the day, we didn't spend as much time as we typically do walking the rocky beach. Instead we opted for a lazy Saturday, leaving the cabin only for donuts at a new bakery that seems to have opened solely to satisfy my random craving for fried dough, followed by beer and lunch at a local pub. The rest of the day was spent soaking up the sunshine with a glass of rose and the latest issue of the Washington Trails magazine. It was the perfect little slice of almost-summer!
