Last weekend many of the team enjoyed a fun filled campout/training weekend at Fort Ebey on Whidbey Island. Friday night we walked 5 miles down from our campsites to the beach for this beautiful sunset. After some chatting we found our tents and settled in for our first night. Lessons learned from Friday? Heat wraps are good. New sleeping bags are good. Hats rock! New friends are awesome!
Saturday morning dawned foggy and cool but with a warm breakfast of yummy french toast from our incredible Crew we were ready to tackle the 21 miles ahead of us. We walked a little bit of everything on Saturday - forest trails, bike paths, sidewalks and country roads.
After a fun weekend of new friendships, new discoveries and a new glimpse into what life on the 3 Day may be like, we climbed into our cars and headed home. Tired, sunburnt, blistered, but with smiles that said it all.
Thanks Whidbey Walkers for still another great campout!
