Admiralty Head Lighthouse and Rosario Beach

The first weekend in June I enjoyed a weekend with family and friends at Rosario Beach, and afterwards, a drive across Whidbey Island and a ride on the Mukilteo Ferry. I did not have time to sketch as I went, so took photos and just finished the sketches today.

Besides beach rocks, I collected a buttercup that was growing beside the the path and some leaves that had fallen from a madrone tree. I have good memories of madrone trees from my childhood and have always loved their smooth, brownish orange bark. I glued the collected samples into my sketch journal and drew around them.

From the porch of the cabin where we stayed there was a strangly formed tree. And we found plenty of crabs and other sea “people” in the tide pools.

I always love visiting Admiralty Head Lighthouse. It was fun exploring the light tower with the grandkids.
