Mukilteo

During the time I was pet sitting in Mukilteo I decided to pop down town to see the ferry and take a walk along the beach.  I absolutely love being by the water, listening to the water rush onto shore, and listening to the sound of the ferrys mournful horn.

The Mukilteo Lighthouse Park is right next to the ferry dock and has lots of parking, and is a pretty cool little park, so this is where I went.

Sitting on a historic plot of land, flashing a white light once every five seconds, the Mukilteo Lighthouse guides ships on their way to Everett, Washington.  The light was lit for the first time on March 1, 1906.  Electricity reached the station in 1927 and was automated in 1979.  I think it’s a beautiful little lighthouse.

The beach is pretty cool with lots of driftwood and things to explore.  Even on a week day afternoon there were plenty of people enjoying it.

If you’re taking the ferry across to Clinton on Whidbey Island, be sure to leave yourself a little extra time to enjoy this great little park.  I’m so glad I took the time to take a little walk along the beach.  Maybe next time I’ll take a ride on the ferry!

July in Mukilteo

What a beautiful place to spend a week!  In the mornings the fog rolls in and I can hear the ferry’s slow, mournful sound of its horn as it crosses from Mukilteo to Whidbey Island.  Later in the day, as the fog lifts I can sit on the upper deck and watch the ferries cross the water.

During the day I also get to watch two sweet dogs.  Pooka, a Jindo and Bear, a Shiba Inu.  They love their walks during the day and love lying at my feet in the evenings.  Aren’t they adorable?

While I’ve been here we’ve had some great storms too!  I love watching the lightning and listening to the thunder.  I’m listening to the thunder roar at this very minute!   There was even a hail storm yesterday.   I’ve enjoyed some beautiful sunsets too!

I thank my lucky stars every day for being able to spend my days in these beautiful places with man’s best friend by my side!  I’m a lucky, lucky girl!
