From the East Coast to the West Coast and all across our land, there is no question that the holiday season is upon us.
The anticipation of holiday celebrations are enough to make children, both young and old giddy with excitement. There are cakes to be baked, gifts to be wrapped, decorations to be hung and lights to be strung. Traditions both old and new run strong this time of year.
One of our family traditions is adventuring with our trailer here in the Pacific Northwest, specifically to the San Juan Islands of Washington state. We board the ferry, sit back and if we are lucky, have some pretty incredible wild life viewing opportunities. If you ever come, make sure to bring your binoculars. It’s an experience you wouldn’t want to miss.
