Justin’s brother’s best friend Jenna got married this weekend at her now-husband’s family’s house on San Juan Island. The whole family went along to be supportive, and I was invited too. I didn’t know anyone there other than the Keyes family, but I’m glad I went.
The San Juan Islands are one of the most beautiful spots in the country, as far as I’m concerned. I remember the first time I visited (on a bike trip 20 years ago), I thought how lucky I’d feel if I could live in the San Juans. Given how remote they are, I’m not sure my adult self would feel quite so lucky to live right on the islands, but I do feel very lucky to live within driving distance.

That’s Mount Baker in the distance.
|Lunch in Friday Harbor. I got prawns; Justin pulled a face.|
|The house faced the water, with a lawn running down to rocky cliffs and a stunning view of the Olympic Mtns|
|Suits and sun and outdoor marriage ceremonies aren’t the most comfortable combination.
Thankfully, the ceremony was short.
|You can see the white chairs on the lawn to the left. That’s where we had the ceremony.
Obviously the view was incredible.
