Moving to Whidbey Island!


These are Jason's Father's Day gifts, a couple of books about keeping chickens and bees - we are planning a move to an acreage on Whidbey Island. Jason will commute to his job in Everett, it's a short ferry ride and he'll have about 5 miles on either side of the ferry. We are excited about the move, it really seems ideal. But if it's not everything we dreamed, we are only renting and can move back to the mainland next year!

We have made some good friends in Everett this past year, hopefully we'll be back often enough to maintain those friendships and we hope to have lots of visitors at the new place!

happy father's day jason! sounds awesome -- way to rent to try it out -- that's what i'm thinking will be our next move, then if we like as much as we think we will, make it permanent :-)

Hello former veg prepper :),

I'm impressed by the way the word "acreage" just seems so natural for you! I can't wait to see the new place!

As one of your Everett friends, I'm so sad that you're leaving. But, we look forward to visiting you on the island and hope that you will come see us often.
