hello & howdy.
we’re just back from another delicious meal at the beach store cafe. if you visit lummi island be sure and visit. sit at the counter if possible, the cooks are entertaining.
on one of our mainland visits to bellingham, we stopped in at bison bookbinding & letterpress . another excellent place to visit as you can see from the photos above.
the more we’re here, the more we love lummi island. it is enchanting. you’ve gotta stay for at least a few nights to absorb the place. there is much to be absorbed in the way of landscape, people, history, wildflowers, forests, water, wildlife. we’re so so glad we made this choice. it’s not really the place to stay to explore the puget sound and environs as it’s so far north, but this area is rich and lovely. and having said that we are heading back to deception pass state park tomorrow for a ramble.
i’m interested in exploring the san juan islands (lummi is not one of them) and just more of the PNW in general. i am down with this summer climate. boy am i ever! i can easily envision a month or 2 up here in summer to escape the LA heat.
i feel like i’ve just discovered a while new territory previously unknown to me. so looking forward to returning. mt. baker has me under her spell. as i type this i’m looking out the window into the darkening night. there she is glimmering just above the hale passage. our great white watcher, as one of you mentioned.
