I confessed on my Skagit Bay Estuary post that until recently, Fir Island just wasn't on my map. It's embarrassing to live your whole life in one area, and still be so clueless--but there you have it. Sweet Sassy Pants (a new "follower"...so exciting!) was kind enough to let me know of another treasure off Fir Island--Craft Island. There are so many little islands around here! I can name about half of the San Juan Islands, but that's about as far as my memory will serve me. Don't even ask me a mountain name; Baker and Rainer, that's all I got. I'm trying really hard not to be such an idiot...Three Fingers, White Horse and Pilchuck...see, I remembered! These are the mountains we could see from our quaint little spot on Craft Island, but I'm getting ahead of myself.

The coolest part is that our friends live close enough to Craft island that they could just jump on their jet skis and get there that way...the closest thing we'll ever have to being 'jet setters'. It was an amazingly beautiful, hot, and cloudless day; so it didn't matter that I would be getting there late--or that I had to go the muddy trial route.
I hesitate even calling this a 'hike'...it's more of a path to make it to the water. But, you still have to use your legs, right? If you decide to go there, I suggest better footwear than slip on fashion sneakers.

What a wonderful way to end the day...even if it meant wreaking my work shoes. :)
|Heading back...not everyone can be a jet setter!|
|Subject to surveillance? Sounds like they have hidden cameras or something|
