Nice areas in the (US) san Juans too. Not much snow, not all that cold for the northern latitude but sometimes a lot of rain.
Sshhh- don't speak of the Gulf Islands, or the San Juan Islands.... they're a secret..... homes in the San Juans are already $1M+, and I would like to be able to afford one someday, so keep these places under your hat
I was just at Friday Harbor this past Sat for the day....
I have a webcam on my desktop of the harbor... it's cool to watch the ferry / ships come and go. There is a trimaran that moores there sometimes that I would love to have....someday
