Another great week on Whidbey Island

It has been a great week here on Whidbey Island.   Last Friday was the beginning of Holland Happening, and the weather was absolutely perfect for the entire celebration, which was a good thing since Pioneer Way is dirt right now as part of the massive renovation, and the Street Fair looked like it was being held in a Wild West town!

Also last Friday, we saw the arrival of the A-3 Skywarrior that will be placed on display to welcome visitors to NAS Whidbey Island at the corner of Ault Field Road and Langley Boulevard at the main entrance to the base.

Then on Monday, we got word that Whidbey Island was selected by the viewers of King-5’s Evening Magazine as the  “Best Local Island Excursion” in their “Best Northwest Escapes” poll of 2011!  (I’ll link the video as soon as it becomes available).

On Tuesday, we found out that one of our local businesses won an award from the National Association of Home Builders for “green” building.  The company, Zero-Energy Plans, LLC of Coupeville, is the design arm of local builder Clifton View Homes.  Congratulations on winning this prestigious award!

I can’t wait to see what the next 7 days bring!

About halhovey

A transplant from the east coast, I spent many years living in the deserts of Arizona and Nevada before finally finding a little piece of paradise on Whidbey Island that I call home. This is where I chose to raise my kids, set down roots, and eventually retire. In my blog I hope to share timely information and statitistics about our local real estate market, as well as a few of the people, places and homes around Whidbey Island that I find special, or interesting.
