The San Juan Islands are an archipelago chain just off the mainland, about a 90 minute drive from Seattle, accessible by ferry, plane, and personal/chartered water crafts.
Each and every island posses its own character - from wild life sanctuaries to islander townies to quaint villages boasting an array of lively restaurants and bars.
You can check out Discover Boating's page for a full guide to The San Juan Islands on your next visit. Better yet? They've got you covered on some of the most unique travel/boating destinations in the country!
Getting down to food - you can check out my recipes, some of which are pictured below, in a recent feature from my trip over at The Art of Manliness. There's a wealth of info in the article, including where to stay, where to go, how to get there - by boat - and also the proper way to filet a big ole king salmon. Tip - you've got to catch one to filet it!
Anyways, here are some of the pictures and highlights from the trip. Unbelievable to think I took all these pictures, and I'm in NONE of them! The joys of being behind the camera I suppose.
Oh well . . . there's always next time.
