It's September already?!?!

Updated: Nov 5, 2019

Well I've got to pat myself on the back for doing exactly what I promised myself I would not do with this blog. Such a rookie move! I haven't posted since my first post at the beginning of the season, good grief!

This summer season brought some unexpected challenges, but that's life, right? Even island life has it's ups and downs. So now Fall is upon us and I have to share with you that it is truly an amazing time to visit the island. The crowds are gone with the kids back in school and the pace has slowed down already. It's like the island takes a collective sigh of relief after Labor Day weekend. You can find parking spots in town again, you can get a last minute ferry reservation and you can easily get a coffee or an ice cream cone without having to wait for that group of fifteen ahead of you! And....the best part? The weather (and lighting for those photography inclined individuals) is ideal, the wildlife watching is abundant and great deals are available for lodging this time of year. For more information about Fall in Friday Harbor, including "Savor the San Juans" which kicks off September 21st and runs through November 9th, please visit
