Koi Gardens

They don't stop on their way to the feeder, and it could be your hand they suck food out of , as you can see you might not want to get in their stand back, let the kids do the feeding.. (Ask For help and permission before putting hands in water)

This is the best kept secret in Mukilteo,  (until recently 'small village type of place' where the ferry goes to Whidbey Island, the  2nd largest island in the US, next only to  Manhattan Island).
A great Destination place. 
Hop the ferry and take a free bus around the Island. 

 If you take your car,  the North tip of the Island  conjoins the mainland again. Weave slowly through Deception Pass, and  near the  tulip fields of Laconner (Shagit Valley) not too far from Mt Baker, Mt Shuksan, etc..all short destinations from home in lazy Mukilteo by the bay.
