:::::::::: Free Days ::::::::::

Time to give your brain and eyes to rest unless you are a true "bead-a-holic"! Take a drive to downtown Seattle (pictures on the right) or take off for Victoria BC, or you can just wander through historic La Conner or Anacortes, head out to
Deception Pass (picture on the left) and take in the
spectacular views or just chill out for the day.

Relax and watch the sunset over the San Juans and Padilla Bay.
