Remember When... Remember when every town had a boarding house? The place the single lady from the mercantile, or the librarian, or the man who did all the lawns in town, lived. They each had a room and SHARED a common living space with kitchen privileges. Remember when at least one person on your block had a grandparent living with them, providing them all with AFFORDABLE housing? In today's world many of our island neighbors find themselves in need of low-cost safe housing just as their grandparents did many years ago. Rural homeless are not on the street begging for handouts, but they are the working poor who cannot afford first and last month's rent and they are also folks who may need an extra three hundred dollars per month to avoid foreclosure. Whidbey Island Share a Home is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit providing an affordable housing alternative for Whidbey Island. We help low-income individuals and families find safe, affordable housing with home providers who want to share their homes. We do reference and criminal background checks on all applicants before approval to the program. WISH does not charge for this service but relies on the generosity of the community to continue our work. Please Email: WISH@Whidbey. com or go to our web site at www.whidbeywish.org for an application.

Deception Pass is located in Island County and there are the two channels separating mainland Washington and Whidbey Island. It is a waterway that has gained a reputation as being "Washington's most active waterway because of the volume of water that travels through the channels during Puget Sound's tidal changes. During the tidal changes there are only two ways for water to leave or enter Puget Sound; around the southern tip of Whidbey Island or through Deception Pass. Since the passageways are so narrow the volume of water can move up to 17 knots in either direction.

Fort Casey was created in 1890 as part of a triangulation of three fortifications to defend the entrance to Puget Sound. The original lighthouse, built in 1858, was torn down when the fort was built and this one was built in its place in 1903. Within the state park you will find a small beachfront campground great for flying kites, the lighthouse and batteries, 68 picnic tables, 1.3 miles of trail and 10,810 feet of saltwater shoreline on Puget Sound. The park also includes Keystone Spit, about a two mile stretch of land separating Admiralty Inlet and Crockett Lake. While today this place may seem out of the way, it was once the heart of Whidbey Island. Early settlements relied on boats for both goods and travel. The growing popularity of the automobile and the construction of the Deception Pass Bridge in 1937 brought this era to an end. This was the town's fourth wharf, built in 1905 by a group of local farmers and merchants who wanted a structure long enough that boats could unload at low tide. This wharf extends 500 feet into Penn Cove. It is now owned and operated by the Port of Coupeville.
