This meant lots of packing, making 2 trips to Whidbey Island, and most importantly going to my daughter Julie's wedding! Unfortunately no pictures can be posted as the ones I need are saved under my personal email and not the Popeye Express account - bummer. So, on to 2019!

It's time for Bob to get serious about clearing the land. We want to make a park like setting out of it, so all the underbrush has to go. 5 acres is a lot of land to clear, but Bob and his tractor (AKA the Orange Beast) are up to the job!

Finally, the event I have been waiting for all year long - the blooming of tulips in La Conner. Although I was unaware of how deer loved crocus, I am aware that deer are also fond of tulips, and therefore didn't plant any. They are plentiful along the island, along with the many cherry trees planted in front of almost every business on the island. It is thrilling to see the spectacle of flowering trees along the highway. It's impractible to show all the pictures I took, but this should give you an idea of what we see:

After our brief snowstorm, things quickly return to normal and before long the first Crocus of the season poke their head above ground. Here are the only shots I got before the deer got to them. Little did I know that Crocos is one of their favorite foods. I planted perhaps 550 plants, but only these 2 survived for a couple of weeks!

Finally, on January 3, we make the crossing over the Deception Pass bridge from Fidalgo Island onto Whidbey Island!Although our crossing is in daylight, I cannot help but to post this picture of a spectacular sunset as seen from Whidbey Island at the bridge - enjoy!
