A sojourn to the San Juan Islands in Washington State is all the more special when segued by seaplane. Oh come on. You can do it. FLY with me! Let’s start in Seattle.
Come fly with me, let’s fly
Pack up, let’s fly away.”
-Frank Sinatra, Come Fly With Me
San Juan Island, Washington
There are special places that leave watermarks on our heart. I’ve discussed them before. The San Juan Islands are one of those places for me. Nestled near the northwest corner of Washington State, this place has imparted an imprint of epic proportions.
Let’s Go to the San Juan Islands in Washington State
When speaking of spaces that stick with us, there is always an indescribable something special that makes our hearts sing. LAAAAAA. One of those places for me is the San Juan Islands in Washington State. An archipelago of islands sitting about as far west as you can get. But archipelago, while a beautiful word and super fun to say, doesn’t do this string of beautiful green treed bastions justice. There is something magical about this place. Wait, wait you say. Still don’t know where I’m talking about it? Can’t place it? I hate when people talk about somewhere like everyone knows it. Ok. Let me help. Hand gestures over the interwebs can be tricky. Come with me. Picture the map of the United States – now look at the upper left corner in your brain, no need to Google it. Keep going. Over there. Up there. Yes. Do you feel me pointing? It’s almost Canada eh? Here. These are the San Juan Islands. I want to take you there. In fact, I would take everyone there. If I could. Let me try.
