Low Tide @ Lummi Island with Clue

Spring is evident every where we go right now.  So we went to Lummi Island, one of our favorite places to visit, a place that is always on Aidan’s list when he comes to stay with us.

 The tide was way out…further than we’ve ever seen.

It was the warmest day on record in Bellingham.  What a great day to play and hike around the Lummi Island shores.

Little tide pools and places that had been hiding sea life for centuries were open to our view.

We saw a multitude of  sea snails, giant barnacles and mussels clinging to the rocks…

A visit to Lummi Island has a tradition that we have been observing since Aidan was old enough to come on trips to visit without his Mom & Dad:  dessert and a Clue game or two at the Beach Store Cafe.

Some family traditions are all about fun, AND DESSERT!

 After Aidan wins one and Grama wins one, we make our way back to the car, and then the Ferry Dock

From the Whatcom Chief we can see Mount Baker sixty miles away on the horizon enshrouded in the high clouds.

The Pacific Northwest has its pleasures, a warm Spring afternoon on Lummi Island is certainly one of them.  To share such a rare day with our grandson was unforgettable.

All photos were taken with my old iPhone 3GS.  If only I had steadier hands…
