Vacation for my Soul - Bicycling San Juan Island
Regardless of whether I’m in a relationship or single, I take at least a weekend trip by myself every year. It gives me room to process, check in with myself and decide what’s next for me. I call it: mini vacations for my soul.
This Spring I landed, literally, on beautiful San Juan Island. I had parked my car at the Anacortes ferry terminal and walked, with my trusted Mountain Bike Speedy onto the Washington State Ferry. An hour of absolutely stunning views later I rode off the ferry in cute Friday Harbor and checked into the Sucia room at the Bird Rock Hotel, a block from the dock. The Bird Rock Hotel is one of the oldest hotels on the island, newly renovated, very inviting and friendly. I found secure parking for Speedy in the amble courtyard and was shown to my lovely, harbor view room on the 3rd floor. The hotel has a handful of rooms with shared bathrooms, the Sucia being one of them. The very clean bathrooms are on the 2ndfloor, one has a walk-in shower, the other a claw foot tub, and not once did I have to wait to get in.
