Blackberries, Bike Trails, and Boats

15Aug12

It’s summertime and the living is e a s y. We are on Vashon Island, in the Puget Sound of Washington. We connected with a housesitting job, so we’re staying put and enjoying the view until after Labor Day.  There’s mountain bike trails 2 minutes out our door and the blackberries are bursting just as close. Vashon is an island close to Seattle and has only ferry service to access it. We’re officially on island time.

We have some posts to share with our bike travels from Bend to Portland and Portland to Vashon. Stay tuned and we’ll get those up as soon as we can pull ourselves away from sitting on the deck.

    Gorgeous! I love Vashon Island (so much prefer it to “Fashion Island” down in Newport Beach, which isn’t even an island…lame!)

    Spent some time up there in the late nineties and it sparkles all green and fresh. I’m all settled into the Hilltop Homestead here in Mancos, with the addition of two new kitties the other day.

    Getting fired up about doing some bike touring sometime in the near future, which will begin with the purchase of a bike! Daydreaming about a future tour across Ireland next year with some friends.

    Love to you guys,
    Jaime
