A Day in Langley, Washington
The town of Langley sits towards the south end of Whidbey Island, about a 45-minute drive south of Oak Harbor and an hour drive + ferry ride from Seattle. Langley boasts an adorable, walkable downtown filled with boutique shops, restaurants, and markets. We grabbed coffee and lemon poppyseed bread from The Commons Café and walked around the town. At this time of year, late March, all of the daffodils are in full bloom, their bright yellow blossoms like little suns lining the sidewalks.
We rented a tandem kayak for 90 minutes from Whidbey Island Kayaking. The rental process was simple and it took no time to get out on the water. 90 minutes on the water was the perfect amount of time to kayak up and down the coastline at a leisurely pace. The sun poked through the clouds about halfway through our trip, giving us some much needed sunlight. The wind was minimal the water uncrowded, giving us a peaceful paddle.
After kayaking, we grabbed ice cream from Sprinklz and ate lunch at a picnic table on the waterfront. We then went to explore the Good Cheer Thrift Store. This thrift shop had a long line of customers waiting outside before it opened, so our expectations were high. We weren’t disappointed! Good Cheer has a wide variety of items, very well organized and presented to shoppers. We found some great books for a dollar each, and could’ve purchased much more had we not exercised restraint.
We had a great day and are looking forward to trying out Langley’s restaurants in the future!
