Happy 4th pre-baby vacation

Well, Jen and I took a little break from life before Lydia comes to see a little more of the Northwest and to celebrate the 4th of July. We went to Orcas Island and stayed at a bed and breakfast. Of all the San Juan Islands, I think Jen and I both love this one the most. It isn't as touristy as Friday Harbor, and it has some small mountains that really liven up the terrain. We actually caught Mt. Constitution on a semi-sunny day.

On the 4th, we went to Friday Harbor. We drove around the island on a scooter. We had to make a stop at 4th of July Beach which is a craptastic beach with not much to see...I am not sure why they even went out of their way to designate it a beach, let alone waste such a good name like '4th of July' on it (my pregnant wife pointing at the sign was actually way more interesting than the beach me).

We stayed at Buck Bay Farms Bed and Breakfast, I highly recommend it. Great Food, Great Service and Great People. They even have satelite tv and high speed internet in case being in the woods is too isolating. They also had sheep to feed, a tiny little pond to check out, lavender to pick, and a bottomless jar of cookies.

We had a blast, like most vacations, we came out more tired than we went in. The point was to rest up, but I think that plan back fired. Well, we hope everyone had a great 4th of July and are enjoying their summers!!!!
