Unbelievably we got, last minute, a trip to the San Juan islands which start about 1.30 mins North of Seattle. The San Juan Islands are an archipelago in the northwest corner of the contiguous United States between the US mainland and Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. The San Juan Islands are part of the U.S. state of Washington. They are the most spectacular group of islands and the weather today was incredible.  About 85 degrees, super calm water – highly unusual for this time of year.  The back drop to the islands are the stunning snow covered Olympic islands.
