Vendovi island

Louise and John invited us to Vendovi Island today. It was the last day this season to visit. If you want to go you'll have to wait until May next year. This is 2/3 of our group, Jan, Eric, Louise and John. Tim was off shooting another picture when I shot this.

The Vet

We went to Browne Home Center our local hardware store and passed this our local Vet. This place has changed hands 3 or 4 times since we lived here. But today I noticed a kind of "old town" sign.

I finally got my project all together. This is my vision of keeping my companion close. The marble has ash from Chester's remains sent to Alaska where John from extreme dreams created it. Then a woman, Sophia Trevelan from Friday Harbor created the setting called "lost your marbles.". So here it is finally, viola.

Best Place To Kiss

14 years ago Tim and I spent one night here and it felt like a week. We had such a wonderful time. This photo was shot Friday on our paddle around Turn Point and I thought this could be one of the best places to kiss only I don't want everyone going there turning it into Tahiti. Magical place nevertheless!!

San Juan Holiday

We cheated death once again.  This is Tim and I on our holiday in the San Juans.
We paddled from Friday Harbor to Turn Island, then to Jackson's Beach.  Just in
time for the sun to set.   We walked back to town and picked up our rig and came back
to get the kayaks.

Hansel& Gretel

You know how Hansel dropped breadcrumbs to find his way...........
Well who dropped all the crabs????
FH Seafood that's who. But why I don't know. Their smoked salmon is to die for and that I do know!!!!

Government Rock

Today Tim wanted to paddle the West Side. So we put in at Smallpox Bay SJCounty Park and paddled to South Beach. This is a photo of Tim on the North Side of Government Rock where years ago his family took a canoe trip around the island and stopped here waiting for the waters to mellow around Pile Point. I'm only wishing we took all day instead of 5 hours to make this journey. It was unbelievable glass water sprinkled with Poooooooooohf!! Noises made by orcas nearby.

Bed & Breakfast

I got out of bed and made this. Fage Greek yogurt topped with homemade granola and peaches that my mother in law gave us. Every bite was a taste from heaven.

Leaving the Islander

Once upon the year 2000 Tim and I made this same boat trek to Lopez in his skiff. I felt a kinship with the water tonight and decided it was a great idea moving to San Juan Island.

Big Surprise!!

My surprise backfired. But have you ever said to yourself after the fact "That was pretty stupid and I never should have done that? What was I thinking"? It seemed like a great idea at the time but ya know what? It was great because he's a great guy. And we gotta good thing going on!! Here he is doing something he loves and looking good at it!!

Water Main

Just before we went to Roche Harbor for the night we were diverted so we couldn't go through town. Tim read today those pipes were put in in 1940's.
