Last week I was in the San Juan Islands, off the coast of Seattle, celebrating my parents retirement, my brothers 37th birthday and my parents 42nd wedding anniversary! My brother and his wife were kind enough to put this trip together and they rented an amazing home for us all to stay in. There were 7 of us on this trip: my brother Greg, his wife Leslie, their 9 year old son and 6 year old daughter, our mom and dad and me.
I arrived in Seattle and it was very chilly compared to Salt Lake City! I spent a day looking around Seattle and visited Pike Place Market. I loved all the flower vendors!
Next, I took a ferry out to San Juan Island. It was very cold for the first few days of the trip.
The weather did improve though and we found out we were here during the warmest days they have had in the last 9 months!
I went for a couple short runs but stopped to snap some pictures.
Oh and cool is my nieces shirt? It says “hugs & pugs”!
Every day we went sight seeing. We were always trying to spot some orca whales, but no luck.
It was nice to have such a beautiful home to return to at the end of each day.
I can’t believe I didn’t see a single pug on this trip. I only saw a partial pug. It was half Pug, half Boston Terrier but it had the friendliness of a Pug and friendly owners too!
Thank you to my family for a great vacation, especially to Greg and Leslie for organizing everything and renting that house!
