We will walk across the fields of the historic Ebey's homestead. We will climb the short and steep bluff, our only elevation for the day.  We will walk along the crest of the bluff and descend to the beach.  We will return along the beach and back through the fields.  Whidbey Island provides the only sand beaches in the Puget Sound.
