Canadians returning to Whidbey Island


Although it's not quite the bargain that it was several years ago, it's not keeping me away from Canada. And with the US and Canadian dollars almost at par these days, the Canadians are once again returning south of the border.

Whidbey Island has always been a popular destination for BC folks. And I'm happy to say, you're back!

This morning, while out for my walk through Langley on Whidbey, I ran into a nice gentleman and his little dachsund June. At one point in the conversation I asked, "Are you Canadian?" He was a bit surprised, replied "Yes," and I explained that he gave it away when he said the word
about.

He laughed.

Turns out he's from Vancouver, and he and his wife heard from friends about the Inn at Langley. When it came time to decide between a four-day getaway to Vancouver Island or Whidbey Island, they decided to head south.

Glad you did!
