Our trip West will continue until we ultimately reach Japan … but right now we are at our 2nd stop, Whidbey Island in Washington. On our way here we stopped in Golden, CO for Michael’s sister’s wedding. It was a beautiful, snowy weekend, and we had a great time! I was one of her Bridesmaids and Michael was an Usher.
We actually set an an all-time personal record for quick check-ins and security lines at Denver International, thanks to flying a small airline and using our military status to do the quick security line thing. I napped for most of the flight to Washington, but I took these photos out of the window early in the flight. The Rockies are sooo beautiful!!
I also took this photo of farm polkadots somewhere over Washington … I’m not sure what the situation was here, but it sure is pretty! I’d love to have a quilt of these little circles.
For the 2nd consecutive time, all of our luggage arrived!!! I get excited about the luggage thing mainly due to the fact that were traveling with 8 checked bags and 4 carry-ons. We’re the couple that the airlines DREAD. Muahaha.
On our first night here, we managed to watch the sunset. It is the first West Coast sunset I’ve seen in several years, and it was special to share it with Michael. I’ll post more about the base and life here later this week … for now, enjoy the sunset 🙂
