#6: Explore a New Part of the USA

This is part of our 100 Things in 2015 challenge. Here’s the full list.

Technically, this was supposed to be “Explore a New US City,” but we realized that with our remodeling project, that was going to be difficult (and expensive). So we picked an area we’ve never visited together instead: the San Juan Islands.

We found a little cabin on Airbnb, and rented it for a week. We drove four hours to Anacortes, detouring through Tacoma and Federal Way. We rode the ferry to Orcas Island. Then we decompressed. If it seems like we never stop moving, believe us, we’ve been noticing that too. We hardly ever take trips to relax, but this year we decided to make a point of it.

This entire week has been full of hiking, relaxing, movies, reading, quirky historical museums, and food. No working, no obligations (except from blogging), nothing but gorgeous sunrises, effortless conversation, and breathing. We’ve had the best cookies Becky remembers ever having, and had a fancy tasting menu that included kale pizza paired with a can of Ranier beer. It’s been really good for us, and we feel ready to rejoin the human race. In a few days, though; we’re still busy being here.
