So glad you got to explore the coastline a bit. It’s glorious, isn’t it? I will haunt the place when I die. The Strait of Juan de Fuca and the San Juan Islands is where my soul resides, always. I once planned to live on a boat in the harbor there until I figured out that I would die of the damp. But a small cabin, up high, with a view of the strait, Vancouver Island, and the many beautiful sunsets? Heaven. Glad you got to see it. I try to explain to people what a singular place it is, but it’s hard to make it sound as special as it is.
