Capturing the Moment — 41 Places to Go in 2011   2 comments

San Juan Islands as Seen from Lummi Island — Image by kenne

 

Five New York Times foreign correspondents (past and present) have identified places they would go back to if they got the chance. One of those places is the an archipelago, the San Juan Islands in the northwest corner of the continental United States and Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, and are part of Washington state. One year ago August, we spent a few days on one of these paradise islands, Lummi Island. Not one of the larger of the islands, but located a short ferry ride from the mainland. We were there for the wedding of my nice, Lisa, where she and he future husband, Michael, would go on bike rides through the beautiful landscapes. The time we spent on the island was brief, but very memorable, from the wedding at Willows Inn, the island’ s nature beauty to the bed ‘n breakfast on the north end of the island. It is easy to see why correspondent, Sara Dickerman listed it in the cover article for Sunday’s New York Times Travel section. We would love to go back and also visit some of the other islands in the archipelago.

  1. What a gorgeous weekend it was! I’m so grateful that we were able to celebrate in this magical place. It’s definitely on the radar now…same edition of NY Times has the Willows Inn as one of the top ten restaurants worth a plane ride!

  2. . . . definitely worth a plane ride — it will remain on our list. Obviously those big-city north-easterners love the San Juan’s.

    I’m so please we were able to attend your wedding and experience the beautiful Lummi Island.
