In December 2016 we purchased a 5 acre parcel of land on Whidbey Island, WA near Coupeville, the second oldest city in Washington. Here is a picture standing in front of a Hemlock tree with the "for Sale" sign clearly visible.
After touring all of the contiguous USA and Canada from BC to Nova Scotia, we decided the most beautiful part of the US is the Puget Sound. This is why we purchased this land and plan to relocate our home to Whidbey Island WA.
The acreage has virgin timber and only a small footpath cut partially to approximately the center of the parcel to give an indication of what might be expected.
Here's a picture of Bob standing in front of a Hemlock tree standing close to the street. We have our work cut out for us! Unfortunately it's time to return to So. CA before the weather closes in on us. Developing this land will need to wait until 2017. We just hope the trip back will be uneventful.
