San Juan Islands? Where diz islandz at?
Right on the upper corner of Washington! Close enough to Canada to smuggle goods via kayak!
They are tiny, gorgeous, full of wildlife (although we didn't see much) and very cute. (But way overpriced - bring your own food and wine! And book stuff early!). You can get there by taking a ferry from either Anacortes or Seattle unless you are Michael Phelps in a heated wetsuit and want to swim.
We played on da shore....
I decided I was a quarterback with an imaginary team. We gotta get ready for football season, right?
I tried to race the guys in the kayak next to us. After one of them puked from seasickness. Sportsmanship is my specialty!
View from the Kayak. All in all 98% awesome. We bought one bottle of terrible wine and on the ferry on the way back, we were passing the bottle back and forth. The wine was terrible, but it was fun :).
The island felt like it was a world away which was amazing because it's about 3 hours from Seattle. Four and a half out of five stars! Would visit again!
What was the last or best escape you went on?
If you've ever been to the Pacific Northwest Forests, do you feel like the Keebler Elves probably live there?
Every time I visit the area, I feel like one is going to jump out and offer me an El Fudge or Grasshopper cookie.
Or maybe that's just wishful thinking...
