Summer time is here - why not visit Whidbey Island

Mt. Baker with the sailboats in the foreground - simply awesome!

Summer time on beautiful Whidbey Island in Washington has to be the best!  I guess I am bias because I have called Whidbey Island my home for over 26 years.  Whidbey Island is the largest Island in the continental United States and is approximately 50 miles in length.  I live on the north end of Whidbey in a quaint Dutch town called Oak Harbor. It is the best place to raise children, enjoy nature and take life easy and slow.  When you visit be sure to prepare yourself for Island time, which is more relaxed and less stressful than from the big city - just an FYI!. We are so close to so many amazing parks, recreation areas, boating and Canada.  We are surrounded by Mt. Baker, the Olympic mountains and the cascades, it just doesn't get any better than this.  Seattle is only 2-1/2 hours drive and Canada about 1-1/2 hours, we are so blessed!

The reason I wanted to write this post today is to introduce you to my hub on hubpages where I share some very awesome RV and camping parks to visit while you are here.  If you love RVing or camping, this should be on your bucket list.  I know after reading the hub and seeing all the beauty - you will definately want to visit! 

So enjoy the hub and all the information, which includes google maps showing you where these parks are located, etc.  There is tons of info on this hub so do take your time and enjoy.

I look forward to my next post - and until then God Bless and have fun this summer - you deserve it.

Updates on my family

Greetings and welcome once again for a quick update on my family.  My brother Marcell has left Tyler Texas and is now at Spohn Rehab Center in Corpus Christi, Texas near my family - Praise God.  He is over the infection which is another bit of good news, so now it's a lot of hard work in getting stronger again.  Our prayers are with him.

As for my neice Audrey, round three of chemo this week but reports from my sister are that she is taking it much better this time, which is amazing news.  I do hope all goes well this week and that tumor begins to shrink and she doesn't have to get any more treatments. 

The newest family member who is going through some rough times is my brother in law Steve.  He has sceloderma and leukemia, is at Virginia Mason in Seattle for chemo treatments.  That is a fantastic hospital and they are treating him really great.  He is not very strong right now so our prayers for him are also welcome.  The Drs. advised him he will more than likely be there for a month so - keep those prayers and positive thoughts coming - he can certainly use them and so can his wife Marsha.  She needs a lot of strength right now too, but God is good and nothing is impossible with him - Amen.

Until next time - may your days be filled with sunshine and hope and never take your health for granted - we certainly don't.  Blessings!
