"Glamping"?? in the SanJuans Islands. The foots all better and we're back at it and having a ball!

  The foot is better so we went and picked up a pair of new boots and hit the road. Who knows when the sun will go away again for another year so we figure we could put off packing for another week and go get a trip in.

Anyone heard of "Gamping"? I've seen an yurt and canvas tents around from time to time but never thought of giving it a go. WOW what a hoot! I felt like Teddy Rosevelt in Africa except no guns and no one to carry my crap. http://lakedale.com/accommodations/canvas.php

The place we chose was Lakedale on SanJuan Island. It's half way between Friday Harbor and Roche Harbor. A little spendy at $150 per night but I have to say it was worth it. They even bring you 2 hot water bottles at bed time to put at the foot of the bed to keep warm.

 Sleeps 4. lake front with a fire pit and free hot breakfast. What!
 Tent set up 3 seconds. Oh...the zipper did get jamed once...lol

 Friday Harbor ferry docks. We eat at a BBQ place to the right of the pic. Love this place.

 Never Ever Ever go to the San Juan Islands without stopping in at Holly B's on Lopez Island (closed Tuesdays). We've been eating danishes from here for almost 20 years and keep comming back for more. Located on the west side of the island in the village just at the north end of Fishermans bay.
Also for dinner try the Bay Cafe (lunch or dinner) and Breakfast at the "Love Dog" (closed Wednesdays) is great too.
Although I didn't post pix we did ride around Lopez for a day and got some great shots of various bays and camp grounds. We also stopped in at Deception Pass Bridge on the way home.

The weather was amaizing, we put about 350 miles on the bikes and had a wonderful time.
To the Munoz family.
Congrats on the New Church, it is beautiful and it was great to see you even though it was only for a few minutes.

Nice to have my riding partner back!
