Back on August 20th, we celebrated the 70th birthday of Beth, Ellie's mom. It was at a favorite rental beach house of the family's, located in Mutiny Bay on Whidbey Island. It's a quiet beach front community, though mostly rental homes, that seemed to have the charm of a secret oasis from the daily monotonous grind of life. The sunsets were a spectacular pink hue, which morphed into deep orange a red. I managed to come away with a sun burn to remind me of the get-away.
Birthday girl, Beth.
