Add one more great reason to visit San Juan Island this summer. WaterWorks Gallery is celebrating 30 years of representing outstanding northwest artists and Ruth Offen throws a great party!
San Juan Island has been a regular destination for my family for years. We like to take a long weekend coming from Seattle as the drive is just under two hours to the ferry in Anacortes, the boat ride a leisurely and picturesque 60 minutes. Other transportation options include the Victoria Clipper from Seattle waterfront or a float plane form Lake Union, Sea.
As a destination San Juan is the total package with beautiful beaches, Americas Camp and South Beach is a favorite with plenty of drift wood for building forts. There are many opportunities to see wildlife like Orca Whales from Lime Kiln Point State Park and research station, Porpoise, and Sea Otters. Friday Harbor is the heart of the island. From the ferry landing you can walk to great galleries, shops and eateries. If you choose to walk on the ferry to the island you have bike and scooter rentals close too. What else, fresh oysters at Westcott Bay, awesome Sculpture Park, the gardens at Roche Harbor Resort, and Mona the retired circus camel grazing with her friend the llama.
Oh! Fantastic jewelry at WaterWorks Gallery!
