Happy New Year 2008! The Island grew this holiday season to accommodate friends and family who came to San Juan Island to be with loved ones or for those who wanted to escape the typical holiday trappings. Many of our guests enjoyed cooking family dinners, relaxing and reading, and taking long walks around town. One of our guests came with their own Charlie Brown Christmas Tree! It was fun exchanging Christmas traditions with our guests and sharing their holiday treats. This time of year, the days are short. We have been treated to some rather nice weather. We have had our share of northwest sunshine, but all in all a few blue sunny days here and there keep the spirit alive. We are looking forward to daffodils popping their heads out of the ground in just a few short weeks.
