Airmail San Juan Style

Last summer we took a trip to San Juan Island. You can read more about it in the post San Juan Flying Adventure. While we were riding bicycles from Friday Harbor to Roche Harbor we passed through some really beautiful country with tranquil forests and lush pastures. Even Mona the camel. There are lots of places to stay on San Juan Island, but you've got to love a place with a mailbox like this one. As pilots we thought it was really cleaver.

We haven't stayed here, but anyone with this much creativity must have a unique establishment. The Inn in the Woods is a seasonal bed and breakfast. You can check their website or this link for information about the upcoming 2008 season. They have four rooms and are located overlooking Sportsman Lake which is well known for fishing and bird watching. Located in the middle of the island it is a good place to get away from the bustle during the tourist season, but close enough to have easy access to both Friday and Roche Harbor for restaurants and shops, especially if you have a bike. Maybe you can have your cake and eat it too. Well, at least a scrumptous breakfast.

So, if you want to get on their mailing list, be sure to send it AIR MAIL (just kidding). -- Margy
