We had a string of beautifully sunny days this week, but alas, it is spring, which means that the weather can turn at any moment. So, as I find myself sitting inside on this rainy Saturday, I can’t help but to daydream of warm sunny weekends, like this one, which we spent on San Juan Island last August.
San Juan Island is quaint, peaceful, and abundant with natural beauty. So, despite only spending a short 26 hours on the island, we were able to leave feeling both invigorated by what we explored, and restored by it’s relaxing nature. Here is how we spent our time…
Visiting Lime Kiln Point State Park, which is known for its Orca sightings. Although we can’t confidently say that we saw any Orcas (I did see a splash, which I willed myself into believing was from an orca), we did enjoy the striking views.
Walking around American camp as the sun was setting. It was so quiet and still, and we were the only ones there, which gave it this element of otherworldliness.
Staying at our first bed & breakfast, The Kirk House, which is located in Friday Harbor. It is a charming home with historical details, a quiet garden, and owners who define the word ‘hospitality’.
Grabbing sandwiches from the Market Chef, to eat during our ferry ride home. Although not that pleasing to the eye, this sandwich was SO good. An unexpected combination of smoked cheddar, granny smith apple, roasted sunflower seeds, sprouts, and honey mustard…who would have thought?
