We woke up after our wedding anniversary to an overcast sky but that didn’t stop us from kayaking before breakfast in the Salish Sea and Lummi Bay. We kayaked past a rocky island covered in seals! There was an older and weathered-looking seal above the tide line that looked it just wanted to be left alone. It was so cute to see the seals popping up all around to watch us. They were very curious but didn’t want to get to close. They even followed us as we paddled away from the rock! We had breakfast at the Beach Store Cafe which was on the East side of the Island a couple of miles from the Willows Inn. We were starving after our early morning kayaking and ate a hearty breakfast of blueberry pancakes, scrambled eggs, over medium eggs, sausage, toast and potatoes!We had our breakfast on the deck and it overlooked the ferry landing! After breakfast, we walked to the Saturday Farmer’s Market, stopping for blackberries and pictures along the way. As Willows Inn guests, we had the option to tour Loganita Farm, where most of our dinner was grown! “Located just up the road from the Willows Inn on Lummi Island, Loganita’s culinary gardens are impeccably maintained and grow vegetables, berries, edible flowers and herbs for Chef Blaine Wetzel and his kitchen staff. Loganita relies on bio-intensive farming practices that foster healthy soils, conserve space, and require low energy input while maximizing yields. Maintaining the overall health of the Loganita farming ecosystem is gentle on the environment and is the secret to growing top quality produce.” I may have dragged Mr. F but I think he secretly enjoyed the farm tour. We saw many raised vegetable and flower beds, including the kale that we had for dinner! The sunflowers and cosmos were so pretty too! We wandered through rows of towering beanstalks and also tomatoes of all sizes in the greenhouses! The view from Loganita Farm was gorgeous and you could see where we stayed, across the street! Can you see the seal rock between the buildings and near our beach? After checking out, we explored the island more. On the Southwest end of the island, we saw boats reefnetting wild salmon! We got an early afternoon ferry back to Bellingham, to go visit my sister’s boyfriend’s family goat farm!
