How to Plan an Unforgettable Baby Moon to San Juan Island

You’ve made it through the first three months and are starting to feeling good again. You’ve decorated the nursery and the baby shower is on the books. Now what? It’s time to plan your Baby Moon. Doctors and experts (as in: millions of women who have done this before you) agree: the best time to enjoy a Baby Moon is in the second trimester, after you conquered the morning sickness and before you are too round to move comfortably. They also agree on road trips being preferable to flying. How about a trip to gorgeous San Juan Island, only 65 miles and a beautiful ferry ride from Seattle? How about staying in the adorable coastal village of Friday Harbor, where you can do everything on foot? Let’s get planning:

Pelindaba Lavender Farm on San Juan Island

What do freshly shucked oysters, Madrona-infused Brandy and lavender massage oil have in common? They are all sustainably grown and lovingly made on San Juan Island. Clean water, clean air and fertile soil make the isle not only the perfect place for wild things, like the Orca Whales and Bald Eagles, but also for small, family-owned farms to grow and manufacture healthy, fun, unique crops. The best part: you can tour these unusual farms for free and eat, drink and smell your way through their exquisite harvests.

Ice Cream on Friday Harbor's waterfront

I’m Eva and I’m eight. San Juan Island is my favorite place and Orca whales are my favorite animals. First I get to take the ferry to come visit (make sure your Mom & Dad make reservations!), that’s so cool. There are puzzles on the tables that other people have started and if I get tired of that I can walk (no running, yes, Mom!) around the ferry boat about 12 times and then we are in Friday Harbor.

Mother's day ideas San Juan Island

The next best thing to breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day, is breakfast, brunch or an early lunch on a beautiful island in the Pacific, before a day of whale watching, hiking, exploring the Pelindaba Lavender Farm or the San Juan Island Sculpture Park. Regardless of whether you are an early bird or wake at the crack of noon, Friday Harbor has the place to nourish and pamper you and yours on Mom’s Day.
