Guemes Island


San Juan Islands, WA

Guemes Island was the most interesting place we visited for a summer vacation. The best part (according to my parents) was that there was no internet. We were unplugged for the week, with only our imaginations to keep us entertained (and our car). Guemes is lots of fun. It's a no frills island with only a general store with overpriced mac n' cheese. The island is littered with small beaches around its coast, so we spent most of our time enjoying them. We did take day trips to Orcas Island and San Juan to visit the alpaca farm and a sculpture garden. We also visited some more beaches that were dog-friendly so Parker could run around. It was the most chill vacation I have had. Sometimes you don't have to do everything to enjoy your time off.
