We went on a quick vacation the beginning of October to the Suan Juan Islands. What a beautiful area. The Islands are located about 1 1/2 hours northwest of Seattle. There are more then 700 islands and reefs but only 176 of the islands are large enough to be named. To get to the San Juan Islands you must take a ferry, which Janie loved. We had a lot of fun, did some sea kayaking, whale watching, biking, and ate some great seafood.
An unexpected surprise. There was camel, named Mona, on one of the Islands. She was very friendly and came right up to us. Janie fed her an apple and she stayed around for a photo op.
Watching for whales. We did see a lot of wildlife, pretty spectacular.
