Well its still a bit chilly outside, but still a perfect time to visit the island, especially with trying to keep some extra money in your wallet it is always less costly to travel in the winter months – great specials at inns, lower ferry costs, and still plenty to do as long as you don’t mind wearing a jacket. Harbor seals and other wildlife are still around – along with our friend Popeye! This harbor seal has a statue in his honor down by the harbor and still comes to visit us down on the docks by the fish market (trying to snag a few treats from visitors). We have luckily through the cold weather had the sun shining for the past week! The sun has been a sign that spring is coming soon, and the sights are still as beautiful as always.
At the inn we are renovating a few rooms’ new paint, floors, and furniture; we will have many new pictures soon! The rooms are coming along nicely and I think that they are much more enjoyable to stay in along with the full hearty breakfast each morning I wish I could stay here in the rooms to enjoy all that relaxing at the inn has to offer, oh yeah currently I do stay here and it has been great, San Juan Island is a great place for visiting and living no matter what your interest – hiking, biking, scenery, water, boating, whale watching, kayaking, picnics and food galore! Many great places for dining and shopping. However if you do decide to do some shopping here and visit our awesome hot sauce shop be careful if you buy one of their commemorative grenade hot sauces (do not take this on a plane in your carry-on) my mom did that for a friend. She got drilled at the check station as the bomb squad came out and asked her if she had a bomb in her bag. She had quite a blast, and has quite a story for everyone back home now.
