      September 10-12, 2010
      NW Tulip Trekkers Whidbey Walking Festival
      Three DAYS - FIVE WALKS - Salmon BBQ and Free Concert in the Park.
      Everyone is welcome to walk
      Mix salt air with the sweet scent of wild berries, dry grass, and warm
      fir trees and you have a perfume that is the essence of Whidbey Island
      in summer. It's a seductive aroma, and one that must have impressed
      Joseph Whidbey, master of the HMS Discovery, when he charted this
      48-mile-long island at the entrance to Puget Sound for Captain George
      Vancouver in June of 1792. Skagit Indians greeted Whidbey with gifts of
      roasted roots, dried fish, and venison. Sandy beaches and bluffs dotted
      the island's shoreline, forests of Douglas fir cloaked either end, and
      verdant prairies blanketed the middle-just as they do today. One early
      settler called it a "paradise of nature." (Sunset Magazine, August, 1997)

      Coupeville:
      "Where the land and the sky and the sea come together, you can slip
      through a crack and see the past and the future," according to the
      Native Americans who first lived on Ebey's Prairie. The plain is now
      part of Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve, a 17,400-acre
      national park encompassing prairies, woodlands, uplands, Penn Cove,
      Coupeville, and a western coastal strip along Admiralty Inlet. Created
      by Congress in 1978 "to preserve and protect a rural community," the
      reserve is the first of its kind in the country. It's home to some of
      the oldest farms in Washington.
      Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve:
      The Town of Coupeville was founded in 1852 by Captain Thomas Coupe,
      making it the second oldest town in Washington. Over 100 of Coupeville's
      buildings are listed in the National Historic Register with Coupeville.
      The town's shopping areas and historic waterfront reflect the charm of
      bygone days. Situated on Scenic Penn Cove, Coupeville is a lovely
      backdrop for the Walking Whidbey VolksFest. Coupeville's historic inns,
      friendly pubs, fine restaurants and intimate B&B's beckon visitors to
      stay and relax.
