This weekend, my husband, my pup and I went on an impromptu trip up to the islands, and it was amazing!
We visited Lopez Island, which sounds like it should be in the Carribean, off the coast of Mexico, but is actually a tiny farming and fishing community in the Straight of Juan de Fuca, north of the Olympic Peninsula and just south of Canada.
It was a lovely break from the city. Cool, overcast and perfect PNW weather.
It makes me want to get out my needles and make some island-appropriate gear for when I move up to the islands. Which definitely is going to happen. Someday.
