In the Seattle metro area here in Washington for the weekend. I am staying at a pleasant low-key, laid-back island near Interstate 5 called, Camano Island. The geography is quite scenic. Snow capped mountains, beautiful calm water (Port Susan) bald eagles and tons of Everest trees!
Travelers Note: There are some hidden gem restaurants off the coast here that serve delicious oysters fried, in burgers… you name it!
