My brother lives in Oak Harbor, Whidbey Island. He works on planes for the navy, I guess they made the base there because of the sub threat during the cold war. It is a beautiful place, one of the most beautiful places I have seen in the WORLD, I have thought about moving up there. He says it dosen't rain very much, but it is always cloudy. His daughter when she was young had a lot of yeast infections because of the moisture.

Grew up on fidalgo Island, the island that connects to whidbey by the bridge ,and it is wet . It is very wet for most folks but I love it and miss it. There's not alot of work on whidbey and it is fueled mostly by the naval base. I loved hearing the planes flying but then I go to as many air shows as I can, and love the blue angels:) Prices for land is expensive but worth it. If you have a questions I will try to help.

You might also send to the CC for brochures and contact the Extention Service for more info.

I understand that the island gets about half the rainfall of Seattle? Is that correct?

Good luck and get used to riding ferries. LQ
