Wow what a list! I like lists too- good to be able to tick your progress and feel you've achieved something.

I love Whidbey Island.

Also, technically if you stopped at SF, you've been part of the way up the California coast. We NorCal people actually love all the coast north of there.

Have fun with the list Barb.
