There's been a murder!

Over on Whidbey Island just a short ferry ride from the mainland, there's a little town called Langley. Filled with quaint stores and great restaurants, with fabulous scenic views of water and mountains, it's a great place to find a nice B&B and spend a little time. Every year on the last weekend of February, amateur sleuths from all over gather to solve the murder of a well known (but perhaps not so well liked) resident. Townspeople act and dress the part of the characters in the mystery and stores hand out clues to help the visiting detectives solve the crime. The scene of the crime is all decked out with yellow police tape and a special edition of the newspaper gives even more clues. It's all done very "tongue in cheek" and with a great sense of humor. This is the third year we have made a "girl's weekend" of it. Even though it was colder then past years, we still had a great time and solved the crime!
