You can indulge in snow shoeing, cross country skiing, ski lessons, sledding, and snow boarding at Hurricane Ridge.

What a view from Apple Tree Point

While visiting friends on Apple Tree Point on one of those hot summer days, we took this photo looking across the sound to Whidbey Island. Since we live in such a dynamic area it is important to get out and enjoy our beaches and water recreation. This particular part of Puget Sound offers a fantastic view of the shipping lanes which includes, at about 5 pm daily, the cruise ships passing by on their way to Alaska. What with all the clamming, drift wood and shell gathering, fishing, walking in the sand, and wading in the water – well, what a wonderful summer we have had this year in Puget Sound.
