Well, we’re not really on the left coast any more, but I wanted to close out this series (at least before enhancing the original entries) by talking about the place we stayed while out there.


We had the priviledge of staying at the Smuggler’s Cove Roost, a very nice cottage in Greenbank, WA on Whidbey Island. The owners, Dick and Dee Fulcher, were excellent hosts and our stay exceeded our expectations. Not only did we have a quiet place to stay each evening, but we had a great view of the Puget Sound as well! The Roost was well-furnished with furniture, pots, pans, utensils, and even DirecTV. The Fulchers stocked the kitchen with a variety of breakfast foods, including fresh orange juice and literally farm-fresh eggs from their henhouse! (Ryan loved the rooster!) Each day our hosts replenished the kitchen, put away our washed dishes, and gave us fresh towels. Their service was great.


We were away from the cottage quite a bit, but did get a few chances to converse with the Fulchers and meet their friendly dog, Sedona. They are very pleasant people providing an excellent lodging experience in a beautiful location. If you’re considering visiting the Seattle area, I definitely recommend a stay at Smuggler’s Cove B&B.
