Our Saturday Kid Free!

We needed a belated Happy Aniversary Weekend and so we headed out to enjoy a night away. Only our 2nd time ever away from the little K. Thus it was long over-due. Being that I am pregnant and not allowed to travel this time (yes, that is right not allowed and not wanting to travel at all). We needed to stay in a relative close driving distance.

It was off to Coupeville, WA for us. This is in the middle of Whidbey Island, and what I think is really a hidden gem in the Pacific Northwest. The island particularly the southern part of the island is very scenic and rural. The island which can be reached by a very large and scenic bridge (Deception Pass), is known for its large Naval Base and also the home of previous military bases (Fort Casey).

The above lighthouse is at Fort Casey, and is called the Admiral's Lighthouse. Preserved for historic significance now and not working. We stayed at the Fort Casey Inn, which is the old officers houses (old as in 1900's). They were very fun to stay in and just imagine the officers families that had stayed there in the 1900's.
The views and walks on the Pacific are always relaxing and rejuvanting. As well it was a 80 degree day, which is a tropical heat wave for us this summer We also went out to an incredible dinner, at a adult only type restaurant.
I love my daughter but, boy is it nice to have a little adult time too. Just to not ask somebody if they are poopy for a day, and only feed yourself. Awe, I could go back already.
