Smoke, what smoke?

The skies above Whidbey Island were thick with Los Angeles-style smog Monday thanks to raging fires elsewhere, but the first day of practice for fall sports went off without a hitch.

We’re playing a little game of catch-up here.

My month-long “vacation” kicked off right after the state track meet, so I missed running any graduation pics for the Coupeville High School Class of 2018.

Well, better late than never.

Wandering to and fro, John Fisken captured the season finale on film, and the photos above are courtesy him.
