Ebey's Landing June 9, 2018

On this Saturday of high weather instability, our Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve hike was pleasantly precipitation free and included periods of sun and blue skies punctuated with photogenic cumulus clouds.

Our six mile loop hike featured a variety of vistas and visits: Views of a glacier-formed homesteaded agricultural prairie,a visit to a restored homesteader home, views across Puget Sound toward the Olympics and Cascades from a traversing path across a 300 ft bluff, a wild beach walk, a forested section as well as exploration of the still active Sunnyside Cemetery, which contains many members of the original homesteading and pioneering families of historical Whidbey Island.

At the restored homestead home, a docent modeled the 1800's era ensemble she had sewn and described the construction methods, materials and findings that a farm woman would would have used, noting that her footwear featured a recent innovation: Shoes designated for a left or right foot, rather than the previous one shape fits either foot style.

It is sobering to think of how different our experience would have been had not the Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve been formed and all efforts of the Federal, State, County, community and private landowners that make it work.

Our return to Mukilteo amidst a deluge didn't dampen our memories of a day spent hiking with friends from near (2 mile) & far (7400 miles).
