Washington Part III

The second half of our trip was quite possibly our favorite part. We left the hustle and bustle of Seattle for the calm waters and tall trees of the San Juan Islands, where we stayed with Joey's sister and her family and soaked up enough kiddie-cuteness to last us until our next visit! But seriously, Joey is one proud uncle and his niece and nephew are pretty special! It was so wonderful to spend some quality time with them in their own element. Orcas Island is beyond beautiful and is home to a very unique and rootsy island culture, I'm talking farm stands where you can purchase fresh eggs and honey on the honor system and less than ten minute drives to the wilderness. It was magical. 

Prepare yourself now for lots of pictures!

The ferry ride to the island was gorgeous. 

The weather was perfect for hanging out on the deck and taking it all in. 

It was just a little windy. 

As soon as we got there it was time to play! 

Uncle Joey is a pretty funny guy!

We went on an adventure every day to magical places like this.

Such a sweet and beautiful family!  

Joey got woodsy.

This was a secret beach where we saw a bald eagle.

Our last adventure to Doe Bay, a rustic-resort and hot springs. You can stay in a room or in a yurt!

Does it get any cuter??

The answer is yes! Even more cuteness on the ferry boat. 

Sadly, we had to say goodbye! We spent our last day with friends in Bellingham who took us to see their favorite waterfall and said farewell for now to sights like these.
