sightseeing again – part two

LizzieLou | nablopomo,visitors | Monday, November 16th, 2009

On days three through five, we went to various places around the Sound. One of the reasons my sister was interested in seeing different places – town and neighborhoods – was because she was toying with the idea of maybe moving out here. Probably she won’t be and one of the reasons is her arachnophobia. I had told her stories about big old s-p-i-d-e-r-s that I’ve seen in my garage and garden (and sometimes in the house.) That made her go looking online for more info. Of course she finds the websites (arachnophobes don’t click!) sponsored by the companies that want to sell you the spidey traps and sprays; so she has come to believe that the PNW is crawling with crawlies.

Anyway, here are some photos from our journeys…

Whidbey Island:


Capitol Building:


Beautiful Magnolia:


Ferry Boat:


Smith Tower:



  1. I can’t believe you did not come visit me in Magnolia. I AM OUTRAGED!

    Also, Janie cannot read this because of her severe spider phobia but she also expresses her COMPLETE AND TOTAL OUTRAGE that you didn’t drop by.

    Also, are we all feeling better now so that we can go to sushi? I feel better, except for my stomach where there is no sushi. XO to my Greenwood ladies!

  2. I didn’t even notice the ginormous spider photo inserts until #3. I was like, “Gee, that building sort of looks like a spider….” Then I saw what you did. Clever, funny, witty Bear. I wouldn’t move there either if the spiders are THAT big.

  3. @Linsey – I’m very sorry you are outraged, OUTRAGED! I didn’t imagine you would want me descending upon your abode with my elders. I’m so very sorry. Next time, we will make a special day trip to your comfortable and scenic living room. And yes, we must get back on track for our sushi date. (As Lolly pronounced with large glassy eyes and a mouthful of gauze after she got her wisdom teeth out: I FEEL FINE!)

    @Eelaine – lol to spider building !
