So we started on our journey to Canada today.  We intended to head to Vancouver first but upon arriving in Bellingham decided it made more sense to start west in Victoria then head east to Vancouver and so forth.  So from Bellingham we backtracked to Anacortes to take the ferry to Sidney, BC.  Due to our extensive planning we had missed the ferry to Sidney for the day (apparently it doesn’t run all day- they obviously didn’t know we were coming!).  Instead, we took the ferry to Friday Harbor on the San Juan Island.  It is like no other place I have been to, it is absolutely beautiful and I feel so relaxed here.  Who knew the San Juan Island was part of Washington?!  I think I need to study my geography! According to Andrew the San Juan Island is the most expensive place to live in Oregon or Washington.  I think it would be great to have a couple of days to spend here and would be even better as a romantic getaway.  It is also definitely a dog place, dogs everywhere.  Tomorrow we will have a few hours to play around and check stuff out then we will take the ferry over to Sidney and drive to Victoria.  I’m really disappointed that this and Canada are so close and I have never made it over before now.  I can’t wait to do some more traveling!
