Trip to Whidey Island To Visit Mr. Pocket Wheel!

On Tuesday we took a jaunt up to Whidbey Island.  I actually packed my spinning wheel in my luggage.  Mr. Pocket Wheel had offered to tune up my wheel if I brought it to him.

The drive took us through Deception Pass.  It is stunning!

We arrived at Mr. Pocket Wheel's house and received the grand tour!

Lunch at Seabolt's Smokehouse
After lunch we drove to Belleview to drop off our heavy luggage before our Wednesday adventure and have some dinner.  Then we headed back to our rental house and packed for the next day.

Happy Stitching!
