San Juan Island, WA

My wonderful mother flew into Washington for an extended weekend so that we could take a lovely vacation to San Juan Island. According to the San Juan Island National Park site, "San Juan Island is the second largest island in the archipelago of the same name, which is located in the Strait of Georgia between Vancouver Island in British Columbia and the U.S. mainland."

The island is reached via an hour-long ferry ride that departs from Anacortes, WA and arrives at Friday Harbor, San Juan. The ride is stunning. The vistas from the island are even more breathtaking. The absolutely amazing thing is how few people were on San Juan. The weather was outstanding, the company superb, and, yes, our souls were restored!

Mom and I spent most of our time simply walking, sitting and talking. We stayed at a lovely Bed and Breakfast that overlooked the coast and the Olympic Mountains. Incredible!
