August 13 (Saturday) – NWARC (Northwest) – Whidbey Island Drive, Conway, WA, 9:30 AM. Contact Fred Russell at email@example.com for details.
We’ll leave by 10 AM enjoying backroads on Fir and Fidalgo Islands before heading across Deception Pass and more backroads on Whidbey Island. Lunch will be at a fun BBQ joint in Oak Harbor then more wandering scenic roads. We’ll make a stop at a private car collection then head for the town of Freeland near the southern end of Whidbey Island for the end of the drive. At this point there will be Penn Cove Brewing and Blooms Winery to choose from in Freeland. Both come highly recommended. Another fun option is just a short drive east for Heirophant Meadery. This area is only 9 miles from the Clinton Ferry dock, but with summer traffic, you may want to plan for the ferry ride home. See you on August 13th!
