Sunday Drive to San Juan Islands

We recently took a family vacation and celebrated my husband’s birthday with our teens in the San Juan Islands. San Juan Island is beautiful and really not that far away from Seattle if you catch the non-stop ferry out of Anacortes.

Gardens at Roche Harbor.

The Mausoleum and exploring the history of Roche Harbor is a must when you visit San Juan Island.

Lighthouse at Lime Kiln State Park where you can watch whales in a distance.

Our ferry back home was delayed so we were able to spend a couple hours in Friday Harbor bowling and enjoying some ice cream.  Here’s a link to more photos from my San Juan vacation.

A Sunday Drive to Chuckanut Drive

We decided to drive up to Bellingham today via Chuckanut DriveImg_6258


On our way back home, we picked up some fresh oysters at Samish Bay for dinner. Img_6261


I wish I had a picture of our baked oysters in their shells…we devoured them too quickly!  If you enjoy a beautiful drive with windy roads, evergreens, mossy trees, dramatic bays; I highly recommend taking the Chuckanut exit from I-5.  Unwind.
