Unique “Old World” Charm on Beautiful Whidbey Island

The City of Oak Harbor is the closest thing to an urban environment that Whidbey Island offers. It is the commercial center of the island, home to Naval Air Station Whidbey Island and supportive of a growing industrial core. In fact, it has just a little bit of everything. Restaurants range from fine dining to fast food, and recreation opportunities abound. The city has many parks, including the waterfront Windjammer Park and the sports fields and playground of Fort Nugent Park. Oak Harbor is the only place on the island that has big chain stores, like Walmart, Home Depot and Big Five Sporting Goods. But the city also has a historic downtown area SEE PAGE 9

WILDLIFE WATCHING Island boasts variety of wildlife watching opportunities

Where’s the best place to view wildlife on Whidbey Island? That’s a trick question because virtually any spot on the island offers opportunities — you just need to look. “If you want to see more wildlife, get outside and open your eyes,” said Ralph Downes, a state fish and wildlife officer. “Walk on trails and just see what can be seen. Get away from the TV and the Xbox and get outside.” He spends his days working in some of Whidbey’s most beautiful spots. He also lives on central Whidbey and enjoys the outdoors in his

Some of the most obvious spots, such as state parks, are some of the best because they provide easy access to the public, he said.

You could spot a bald eagle swooping around just about anywhere. But also, just for starters, see deer, redtail-hawks, woodpeckers, owls, coySEE PAGE 10

WHALE WATCHING

Many days Downes is on the water and he loves motoring around Deception Pass. Boaters need to be careful of the tides ripping through, but observing the shorelines can yield sightings of all kinds of wildlife, especially marine birds perching on rocky ledges and seals lounging on Deception Island. Watching the whales never gets old. Orcas and gray whales make their way through Puget Sound as a part of their annual migration and can be spotted from a number of locations on the island's shorelines and within the surrounding waters. Orca Network has outlined the best whalewatching points on a map which can be viewed via the website at orcanetwork.org or at the Whale Center in Langley. There are over 120 designated spots from Olympia to Possession Pass that are ideal for sightings. The San Juan Islands are also an excellent spot. Locations on Whidbey include Boy and Dog Park, Cascade Avenue and Seawall Park in Langley, Shore Meadows in Freeland, Posession Point, Possession Point State Park, Greenbank and Penn Cove as well as Fort Casey State Park and Joseph Whidbey State Park. Whale-watching charters depart from Langley and Oak Harbor beginning in early spring through early October. Deception Pass Tours' boat the Island Whaler departs from Deception Pass for gray whale sightings in the spring and sets sail for orca, minke and humpback sightings during the summer. More information about Deception Pass Tours can be found at deceptionpasstours.com Mystic Sea Charters' boat the Mystic Sea departs for gray whale-watching from Langley in the early spring through mid-May and departs from Anacortes for orca, humpback and minke whale watching tours from mid-May through

More information can be found at mysticseacharters.com Clipper Vacations offers whale-watching excursions departing from Seattle going north through Deception Pass to Friday Harbor. Clipper Vacations also offers tours from Seattle to Vancouver and Victoria, B.C. More information can be found at clippervacations.com While bird-watching is a year-round activity, certain birds make their way through the sound seasonally.

BIRD WATCHING

Pacific Flyway migratory path during spring and fall, following food sources and heading towards warmer climates and breeding grounds. The island has five locations which the National Audubon Society has deemed important bird areas. These are Crockett Lake and Penn Cove in Central Whidbey; Deer Lagoon in South Whidbey; and the Crescent Harbor marshes and Deception Pass on North Whidbey. Crockett Lake, which is located near the Coupeville-to-Port Townsend ferry, is one of the best places to spot both migratory shorebirds and raptors. Commonly sighted raptor species include bald eagles, northern harriers and red-tailed hawks. The Deer Lagoon estuary, near Useless Bay, is home to thousands of shorebirds, raptors, waterfowl and songbirds year-round. Some of the more common bird species sighted on Whidbey include surf scoters, greater scaups, great blue herons, pelagic and double-crested cormorants, pacific and red-throated loons, gadwalls, gulls, pigeons, belted kingfishers, hummingbirds and woodpeckers. Greenbank Farm, on Central Whidbey, is home to a large concentration of Great Blue Herons. The island is also populated with a number of deer, including Columbian blacktails and rare white deer. The white deer's complexion is not due to albinism but due to a recessive genetic trait. Some islanders have also caught a glimpse of "pinto" deer with white spots.

s the second oldest town in Washington state, Coupeville residents embrace history. In the heart of Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve, visitors can stroll through the town, which features numerous historical buildings including some built in the mid-1800s. These historic structures are well-maintained and still used to this day. Coupeville features many restaurants and gourmet food and wine shops. A main staple in Coupeville are Penn Cove mussels, harvested from the town's waters. Mussels are a centerpiece on most restaurant menus in town. Each year in March, most of the businesses in town participate in a mussel chowder contest, aimed at publicizing the popular mollusk. What once started as a small food festival has turned into what is now known as Penn Cove Musselfest, one of Coupeville's most popular events bringing thousands of people into town. Other festivals throughout the year include the Penn Cove Water Festival, which features Native canoe races and the Coupeville Arts and Crafts Festival, which brings artists and visitors from all over the country. Visitors can see the mussel flats to the north as they stroll out onto Coupeville Wharf. On a good day, wildlife such as otters, birds and whales can also be seen in the cove.

HISTORY Tourist locations rich with stories of island's founding ancestors

Whidbey Island was first settled by members of the Lower Skagit, Snohomish, Suquamish and Swinomish tribes, among others. Its first white settler appears to have been Thomas Glasgow, who arrived in the spring of 1848 after exploring Puget Sound in a canoe. He took a Native American wife, planted peas, potatoes and wheat and built a cabin on the island's west side near Penn Cove. When a huge gathering of Native Americans nearby agreed that summer that white men posed a threat to their existence, Glasgow and fellow settler Antonio Rabbeson abandoned their cabin. Though not the first to file a land claim, Colonel Isaac Neff Ebey was the first settler to permanently move

to the island, after laying claim to 640 acres in central Whidbey in 1850. He claimed the area on the west shore of the island, just south of Penn Cove. That area is now known as Ebey's Landing and Ebey's Prairie, and it is a National Historical Reserve. It was through the efforts of Col. Ebey that Island County came into being in 1853. Coupeville, where visitors can find Ebey's Reserve, was the first town settled on the island and is the second oldest in the state. It was settled in the early 1850s by sea captains who, after spending years in the waters of Puget Sound, decided to retire. The town was named for Capt. Thomas Coupe, and became Island County's county seat in 1881.

In 1895, the Island County Fair began as a project of the County Horticulture Society. The fair is thought to have been a harvest celebration, and was one of many ways the community came together. Since 1920, the fair has been held on the south end of Whidbey Island, mostly in Langley. Now called the Whidbey Island Fair, it's still held in Langley. The fair takes place this year on Aug. 4-76. The people of Whidbey Island are proud of their local history. There are many sites to see memorializing history. Oak Harbor, in North Whidbey, is home to a Naval Air Station, which was built in 1942. The Navy has been a central part of Whidbey Island communities ever since. The PBY Memorial Foundation's Naval Heritage Center, on Pioneer Way in Oak Harbor, preserves the city's naval history, featuring aircraft and artifacts from 1942 on that are relevant to Whidbey Island. Central Whidbey, home of Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve, is filled with historical sites

Now a state park, it offers miles of hiking trails and high-bluff views of Port Townsend and the Olympic Peninsula. Another part of the "Triangle of Death," Fort Casey State Park, located in Coupeville, was originally constructed in 1897. This park is best known for its 10-inch disappearing guns, but is also home to the Admiralty Head Lighthouse, which was originally built in 1861 and was rebuilt in 1903. The lighthouse has been open to the public since the mid-1950s. Also in Coupeville is the Island County Historical Society History Museum. The museum features exhibits of Island County history, including a 120,000-year-old Ice Age tree trunk, Mammoth remains, rare medical instruments and a 170-year-old canoe that was recently restored thanks to the efforts of the Historical Society and museum director Rick Castellano.

The 151-acre former loganberry farm provides space for a popular event center and traditional festivals and provides a picturesque location for weddings, reunions and more. Onsite is Whidbey Pies & Cafe, a lunch venue for diners looking for fresh fare and legendary pies.

Open year-round, the quirky specialty shop offers raw, organic, sheep, goat and cow cheeses; picnic foods and dried meats, candy, gifts and more. The farm also has an expansive area set aside for offleash dog walkers, and horses and alpacas have grazed on the pasture located next to the highway. The farm, with its large wetlands, is also a prime spot for wildlife enthusiasts to view great blue herons. They are often seen crossing State Route 525 at dusk to roost at the massive rookery in the fir trees across the highway. A short distance south of the farm on the highway sits the Greenbank Store & Grille, a community center that wears many hats as a grocery, coffee shop, restaurant, bar and general gathering place.

PARKS Island parks offer scenic views, fun for all

Photo by Jim Waller

A mother and her child enjoy time together as they explore the beach at Joseph Whidbey State Park near Oak Harbor. Whidbey Island is the jewel of Puget Sound, and its beauty is enhanced by the many state, country and city parks that dot the island from north to south. These parks enable visitors to enjoy the wonders of Whidbey while recreating among its natural splendor. DECEPTION PASS STATE PARK, 10 miles north of Oak Harbor, is the king of parks, not only on Whidbey Island but in the state of Washington. It sits like a crown on the northern tip of Whidbey Island, attracting more visitors — more than 1 million annually — than any other park in the state. Deception Pass Park is a water-lover’s paradise, home of three freshwater lakes, 77,000 feet of saltwater shoreline, two docks and five boat ramps. It also includes nearly 50 miles of trails — 38 for hiking, three for biking and six for horseback riding. Roughly 1.6 miles are ADA rated. The park includes 200 camp sites, an interpretive center and 11 kitchen shelters. JOSEPH WHIDBEY STATE PARK, three miles west of Oak Harbor, is a day-use facility that offers birdwatching, beach combing and picnicking. Central Whidbey is the home of the island’s most intriguing state park, FORT CASEY, a former U.S. Army base that opened in 1897 and was decommissioned after World War II. Located five miles south of Coupeville, Fort Casey features old Army structures, battlements and a lighthouse. The fort’s original guns have been removed, but two 10-inch and two three-inch guns were

14

re-installed to give visitors an idea of what the fort looked like during its working days. The Admiralty Head Lighthouse, like the fort, has been decommissioned but now serves as an interpretive center. Built in 1903, the lighthouse was remodeled several years later with 18-inch walls to handle the concussion of the fort’s cannons. Fort Casey State Park also features a marine park for scuba diving, two boat launches and RV and camping sites. Another state park, FORT EBEY, sits five miles northwest of Coupeville, and, along with Fort Casey, was part of the coastal defense system and houses several small battlements. The central feature of the park is its trail system for hiking, biking and horseback riding. The park also has camping sites and paragliding opportunities. Fifteen miles south of Coupeville is SOUTH WHIDBEY STATE PARK, a day-use park that offers spectacular views and hikes among oldgrowth timber. Several parks near the island’s three towns are also popular recreational stops In Oak Harbor, WINDJAMMER PARK hugs the city shoreline and offers camping, hiking, picnicking and swimming in a saltwater lagoon. The park also has several play fields, basketball courts and sheltered kitchens. The county’s RHODODENDRON PARK, 1.5 miles south of Coupeville, includes ballfields, hiking trails, picnic areas a sheltered barbecue area. Camping is also available April 1 to Nov. 1.

At the center of Langley’s SOUTH WHIDBEY COMMUNITY PARK is a large wooden play structure for children to explore. The park also has tennis and basketball courts as well as play fields. Another popular spot on South Whidbey, just west of Langley, is SARATOGA WOODS, a hub for hiking in the Department of Natural Resources and Metcalf Trust trail system. MEERKERK GARDEN, a private park south of Greenbank, provides five miles of trails through 53 acres of woodland gardens. Among Whidbey’s parks are those that cater to canines. The OAK HARBOR DOG PARK, just north of town, is at the end of Technical Drive off Goldie Road. The CLOVER VALLEY DOG PARK, also north of Oak Harbor, is on the corner of Oak Harbor and Ault Field roads. PATMORE PIT, south of Coupeville, is the island's largest dog park with 40 acres. From Highway 20, turn on Patmore Road, go past Keystone Hill Road and turn left on the drive leading to the parks maintenance facility. DOUBLE BLUFF BEACH on Useless Bay offers two miles of shoreline for dogs and humans to explore. From Highway 525, go south to the end of Double Bluff Road. MARGUERITE BRONS MEMORIAL PARK, is a half mile south on Bayview Road. GREENBANK FARM includes a dog-friendly hiking trail off Highway 525 on Wonn Road.

Thrift stores on every part of Whidbey Island are run by nonprofit organizations and help support various projects and programs in the community.

BARGAIN HUNTING Thrift shops hold array of treasures waiting to be found

One of the best kept secrets of Whidbey Island shopping is the quality of merchandise at the thrift stores. Most of the thrift shops on Whidbey Island are run by non-profit organizations to raise funds for benevolent causes such as local food banks and animal shelters. Many donations come from folks who are retiring to their summer homes and downsiz-

ing their households. This brings many highquality items that are truly gently used. These stores also act as the general stores of the more rural areas of Island County. When you go on vacation and forget something important like beach toys, you can generally find what you are looking for at the local thrift shop. The other big draws to our thrift stores are

antiques, jewelry, fine art and beautiful furniture. Much of the vintage clothing is complete with original labels. Small groups of vendors sharing space in antique "malls" are also very popular on Whidbey Island and a great place to find unique gifts. Islanders highly value reuse and recycling as a way of life. Happy treasure hunting!

AGRICULTURE

One of the best ways to get your hands on vegetables grown on Whidbey Island — and to eat with the season — is to go to one of the many farmers markets that run from spring to fall each year. Dozens of growers and farmers bring their best produce to the markets. In addition, vendors offer all kinds of handmade items, artwork, honey, jewelry, kettle corn, baked goods, lotions, jelly and much more. According to the Whidbey Island Conservation District, farmers markets on Whidbey Island include the following:

BAYVIEW FARMERS MARKET Whidbey News Group photo

Farms up and down the island supply restraurants and homes with locally grown produce and other agricultural products such as meat, poultry and dairy.

Farming part of island life Agriculture on Whidbey Island has changed over the years, but it remains a vital part of the island way of life. The epicenter of farming on Whidbey is Central Whidbey’s prairies, where agriculture is encouraged and protected by the establishment of Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve. The working rural landscape encompasses thousands of acres of rich and scenic farmland, much of which is privately owned but permanently protected from development. Throughout the island, large-scale farming operations have mostly been replaced with smaller farms and niche enterprises, such as squash, vegetable seed, llama wool and replacement heifers for off-island dairies. The island’s natural prairies, rich loam, marine air and a temperate climate make it a perfect place for growing vegetables and berries. In fact, the Greenbank Farm once was home to more than 100 acres of loganberries, making it the largest grower of the raspberry-blackberry hybrid in the country at the time. The mild climate, lack of pesky bugs and open spaces also make the island a great place to raise animals. Cows, horses, pigs, chickens, ducks, turkeys, llamas, goats, sheep, bees and even bison call Whidbey home. Since it’s an island, a different kind of farmer harvests the water of Puget Sound.

20

Penn Cove Shellfish grows and and harvests Penn Cove mussels, clams and oysters. Farmers and growers across the island have taken advantage of people’s renewed interest in locally grown food. Buying local helps the economy and helps to reduce carbon emissions associated with shipping, but the advantage most people seek is that of quality and ease. Fruit and vegetables grown on the island make their way to farmers markets, roadside stands and grocery stores. The 3 Sisters Market in San de Fuca and the seasonally open Dugualla Bay Farm north of Oak Harbor both specialize in offering produce, meat and other foods grown or produced on the island. A long list of growers are involved in community supported agriculture in which people buy “shares” or a subscription and receive a box of vegetables in a regular basis. A list of the farms and other information about agriculture on Whidbey Island is at www.whidbeycd.org, which is Whidbey Island Conservation District’s website. Many restaurants on the island incorporate local vegetables and meats into their menus. Some notable examples include Frasers Gourmet Hideaway in Oak Harbor, the Oystercatcher in Coupeville, Gordon’s on Blueberry Hill in Freeland and the Inn at Langley.

One of Bayview's most popular events is the Mutt Strut, which is held each fall at Bayview Corner. CONTINUED FROM 22

October. Whidbey produce and locally made goods populate the market, making the market a fun experience for the whole family to enjoy. Fun events such as the Mutt Strut Parade, held annually, offer folks a chance to adorn their fuzzy companions in creative costumes. A collaborative farm between the South Whidbey Good Cheer Food Bank and South Whidbey School District across the street hopes to act as an abundant resource for the community. Known as “The Big ACRE,” it is currently being built behind the old Bayview School building. For consumer goods, The Goose grocery store, Sebo’s Do-It-Center and a gas station offer everything a shopper may need. Neil’s Clover Patch Cafe is beloved by community members, while Joe’s Wood Fired Pizza is equally as satisfying. Lone Lake, located nearby, provides anglers with a chance to catch stocked rainbow trout.

RECREATION Great outdoors provide backdrop for countless hours of fun

They are also home to abundant wildlife, and both islands are popular locations for bird watchers. Hit Crocket Lake on Central Whidbey for a diversity of birds, from ducks and shorebirds to large birds of prey, and Deer Lagoon on South Whidbey for song birds and other waterfowl. For wildlife harvesters, Whidbey Island is a hunting and fishing hot spot as well. Pheasant release sites in Bayview on South Whidbey; Ebey's Landing, Arnold Farm, and OLF Coupeville on Central Whidbey; and two areas at the Seaplane Base on North Whidbey are open seasonally. Several public forests are open for deer hunting as well. As for fishing, locations such as Bush Point on the west side of the island and Deception Pass on the northern tip have been favorites of angles for generations.

Three words: Whidbey is awesome. For a sleepy and rural community, this is a place where fun abounds. Kite surfing, premiere diving, kayaking, salmon fishing and crabbing, whale watching, hiking, bird watching, hunting, skydiving, paragliding; whether it’s by sea, land or air, the list goes on and on.

Several businesses will rent kayaks to visitors as well as lead kayak trips. WAYS TO THE WAVES

Of course, Island County offers a multitude of possibilities for getting out on the water. Water lovers can rent Kayaks on Whidbey at the historic Coupeville Wharf (Harbor Gift & Kayak Rental, 360-6783625) and tour the famous mussel rafts of Penn Cove Shellfish. On South Whidbey, Whidbey Island Kayaking offers sea kayaking tours and kayak rentals. The tours are by reservation. The company offers tours out of the Langley Marina, Possession Beach as well as custom or group tours. Located at the Langley Marina in the warmer months, the company also offers paddle board rentals and bike tours. The website is www.whidbeyisland kayaking.com or call 360-632-9754. Also out of Langley are whale watching opportunities. Gray Whale season is hot in the spring time, but you may also get lucky and spot a few Southern Resident orcas swimming around Whidbey’s

Paddle boards and lessons are also now available for rent at Oak Harbor Marina at Harbor on a seasonal basis. Visit www.harborsup.net for details. BEST OF THE OUTDOORS

For

a

quieter

experience,

Whidbey Island is home to hundreds of miles of trails, five state parks as well as bountiful county, municipal and community parks and beaches. Some offer spectacular views of Puget Sound, others cool walks through lush and ancient forests — several areas host old growth such as South Whidbey State Park's 500-year-old cedar.

Fishing is a popular activity all around the island. UNDER THE SEA

Puget Sound offers scuba divers some of the best dive sites in the nation and beyond. The large tidal exchanges provide a wealth of nutrients that feed a diverse ecosystem of undersea creatures, from such oddities as sea cucumbers to slowmoving lingcod to frisky seals and otters. Perhaps the most popular for divers to encounter is the giant Pacific octopus, the largest octopus in the world. SEE PAGE 29

Whidbey & Fidalgo ‹ ISLANDER 2016


CONTINUED FROM 28

Fortunately, Whidbey Island has some of the best dive sites around. Keystone Underwater Park in Central Whidbey is one of the most popular shore dives around. It’s located on the other side of a rocky jetty from the Coupeville-to-Port Townsend ferry dock and is positively teeming with life. There’s schooling perch, tube snouts, a plethora of crab, a cascading wall of anenomes and — if you’re lucky — a wolf eel or octopus. Other popular shore and boat dives include the Possession Point Ferry Wreck, the Langley Tire Reef, Strawberry Point and Ebey’s Landing. There’s also Deception Pass, a legendary dive site where currents are strong and divers should use caution. For equipment, lessons and good advice, visit Whidbey Island Dive Center in Oak Harbor. Check out www.whidbeydive.com or call 360-6751112. OTHER STUFF

For those with their own watercraft, both islands have a legion of small boat ramps and public beach access points which can be found with a simple web search. Public beaches are great clamming hotspots as well — Grasser's Lagoon on Central Whidbey attracts people from as far away as Bellingham.

Whidbey News Group photo

Each year visitors and residents take to the waters in hopes of striking it rich with their crab pots. For complete list, visit wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/shellfish/beaches/MapArea/08 Whidbey Island is also home to what some hail as Puget Sound's best place to surf. Located at Fort Ebey State Park, the spot breaks best on a west northwest swell.

Finally, for those looking to duck the waves, Central Whidbey is renowned for it's diving. Keystone Underwater Park, which includes "The Jetty" and "The Pilings," is recommended for divers of all skill levels, though beginners should only attempt them at slack tide.

WHIDBEY SPIRITS From wineries to taprooms, options continue to grow for great libations

Though the Pacific Northwest is perhaps best known for its coffee, Whidbey Island is quickly becoming a popular haven for those who enjoy beverages with a little more spirit. Perhaps it’s the climate — that of South Whidbey, in particular, is ideal for growing certain types of grapes, used to produce fine wines like Spoiled Dog Winery’s award-winning pinot noir. Or maybe it’s the natural beauty of the island, which pairs well with a cool beverage. For these and any number of other reasons, “We are finding more and more that people are coming here for wine,” said Karen Krug, who with her husband and two amicable Australian shepherds, owns and operates Spoiled Dog Winery in Langley. The winery is one of several on Whidbey, and is a part of the Whidbey Island Vintners and Distillers Association, of which Jack Krug is president. The Krugs and their fellow association members produce the majority of their products on-site. All

Taprooms and small brewing companies have been cropping up all over the island in the last year. association members also have tasting rooms located on-site, enabling visitors to sip with a view of the very vines — or trees, in the case of an apple pear wine produced by the Krugs — from whence their beverage began.

Whidbey Island is home to several wineries, which collaborate to hold events and tours throughout the year. Spring Food, Wine and Spirits Tour, which takes place the weekend after Mother’s Day; and Autumn on Whidbey Wine, Spirits and Art Tour, which takes place the second weekend of November. Island wineries, distilleries and tasting rooms also often put on their own events throughout the year, pairing their specialties with music, art and food. Other wineries on the island include Whidbey Island Winery, Useless Bay Winery, Ott and Murphy Winery, Rain Shadow Cellars and Greenbank Cellars. Unlike in most industries, Krug said, “Everyone is in a good mood” in the wine business, customers and vintners alike. So too, positivity permeates many of the island’s distilleries, taprooms and breweries, as well as its meadery, Strix Varia, which produces a melomel, mead and cyser. Cadée a distillery and tasting room which opened in fall 2015, is one of the newest additions, owned and operated by Colin Campbell, a native of Scotland with a 500-year family history in the distilling industry. The Heising family, owners of Whidbey Island Distillery, also appear to have a knack for distilling encoded in their DNA. The distillery, located in Langley, is operated by three generations, according to its website. For those who prefer beer, the island contains a treasure trove of locally-produced craft brews and taprooms in which to enjoy them. Taprooms include Flyers Restaurant and Brewery in Oak Harbor, Taproom@Bayview Corner and Penn Cove Brewery in Coupeville, all of which serve a hardy selection of local beer and ciders, rotating

their taps on a seasonal basis. Penn Cove Brewery is the newest of the bunch, SEE PAGE 32

and opened its doors in early spring. Whidbey Beer Works in Oak Harbor is also well-regarded for its expansive collection, and is Whidbey’s only specialty beer store. The shop contains over 600 beers, ciders, wines and meads, according to its website. Flyers also operates its own brewery, and Penn Cove Brewery co-owner Marc Aparicio said he has his sights set on doing the same some time in the future. Other breweries on the island include Double Bluff Brewing Company in Langley and Thirsty Crab Brewery in Freeland.

A short ferry ride takes you from the Seattle metro area to the scenic beauty and tranquility of Whidbey Island, the largest of the Puget Sound’s island gems. Small family wineries and a craft distillery set in spectacular rural countryside offer critically acclaimed wines, award winning liqueurs and unpretentious hospitality. Passionately created and diverse in style, there is an island wine to tempt every wine-lover. The wines of the island represent the full range of the Washington varieties and regions including the exquisite and rare estate wines of the Puget Sound AVA, the states’ 3rd oldest designated grape growing region. The cool clean air, fresh spring water coupled with the finest ingredients culminates in world-class spirits. Charming seaside towns, unspoiled beaches, world class cuisine, a vibrant arts community and unlimited recreational possibilities make the island a desirable destination.

Bob Stallone, owner and operator of Thirsty Crab, as well as Daniel Thomis, owner and operator of Double Bluff Brewing Company, have been brewing for decades. Both men apply their backgrounds in science and chemistry to the art of the brew, and often visit one another to exchange ideas and discuss their most recent concoctions. Stallone has been brewing since the 1970s, but it was a sort of happy accident that led him to brewing on a larger scale. “It’s kind of like penicillin was discovered by accident,” he said, explaining that for years, he made small batches for friends, all of which were wellreceived and oft-requested.

Upon moving to the island after retirement, he, like Thomis, stepped up his production a bit, and now produces for a few local restaurants. Though demand is high, Stallone said he is keeping his operation small so that it remains enjoyable. One career — as an L.A. police officer — was enough, he said. Thomis, on the other hand, is working to meet the increasing demand of his customers, as the brewery — which, along with its corresponding taproom, is located in downtown Langley —  has become his second career, after ending a longtime term as a biochemist. Stallone still hosts semi-regular gatherings at his brewery a.k.a. his Freeland home. 3466 Craw Rd, Langley,WA 360.321.4715 www.whidbeydistillery.com

CLINTON

Whidbey News Group photo

The Clinton community gathers every Fourth of July for the annual Maxwelton Independence Day Parade.

Many fun things to do in the gateway to Whidbey Island

Located on the southern tip of Whidbey Island, Clinton is the de-facto welcome mat to the island’s rich happenings. Accessed mainly by commuters traveling between the island and mainland via the ferry terminal, the unincorporated area features agriculture, beaches, arts and business. Though residents are working diligently to give Clinton a more solidified identity, there are several festive events throughout the year to be enjoyed, such

as the Clinton Town Picnic held annualy in September, which features food, music, games, prizes and the world’s largest outdoor lawn scrabble game. There is also a free community potluck in Dan Porter Park, Clinton Thursday Market and an annual Easter egg hunt. Utilized by those keen for the outdoors, the Fishing Pier-Dock Facility is located just off the ferry terminal on Clinton Beach. A day-use dock allows people to tie up boats, but there is no launch ramp. Nearby, a fishing pier is also popular among crabbers hoping for a catch using nets and pots. Thirty-three acres of forest and wetlands, 26 acres of beach and tidelands and 2,000 feet of shoreline were purchased by the Whidbey Camano Land Trust by way of a $1 million grant. The waterfront property on Possession Sound can be accessed just north of the ferry terminal and east of the highway. Up the road, the commercial core of Clinton can be viewed from the highway.

of a large hill, satisfies a taste for asian cuisine. To find Clinton’s best-kept secrets, one must travel off the beaten road. Possession Beach Waterfront Park is toward the island’s southern tip and is commonly used by anglers for boat launches during fishing season. Dorothy Cleveland Trail is nearby, spanning three miles roundtrip for avid walkers. Every Thursday through July and August, the Clinton Farmers Market features local artists, craftsmen, local services, food, music and fun. Also included at the market, held at the Clinton Community Hall, are fresh-cut flowers, artisan goods, farm-fresh produce and culinary creations. As one of the more serene and peaceful locales on Whidbey Island, Deer Lake offers a small boat ramp and dock that is used for fishing and swimming alike. Across the big pond, there is also a swimming area for the public. Farmstands also dot the sprawling area. Off Highway 525, a gathering space for curious and creative exploration can be found at Blueschool Arts, where the studio/classroom/ gallery hosts several events each month. They include exhibits and classes.
