For our first year anniversary, we headed back to the Tucker House at Friday Harbor. Since I didn’t post blog last year when we got married, I thought I’d start there.
On March 10, 2012, we got married at the Tucker House in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. The ceremony was at 8am and it was just the two of us and the minister. By 8:30, we were sitting down for breakfast, and it was so delicious: Fresh bread, home made granola with Greek yogurt. So good. Then, we headed to the other side of the island and stayed at Roach Harbor for the night. In March, both sides of San Jaun island are pretty quiet and very romantic. It’s one of the few places where we both check out of the hectic grind and unplug.
We (I?) shared oysters with a couple local guys at the bar. Really amazing and fresh!
Roach Harbor: March 11, 2012
So, when Greg suggested we come back to Friday Harbor for our anniversary, there wasn’t really any doubt! We arrived late Friday night to complimentary champagne and home made short bread.
And, even though this is our third visit to San Juan. Island, we hadn’t really stayed long enough in Friday Harbor to explore. This year, we had all day Saturday and lucky for us, this year, we had great weather so we could explore the town in style. I think we hit every shop in town. The water is crystal clear, the people are super-friendly, and the vibe is almost like Key West. Well, not really, but it is really laid back!
And for our afternoon snack we had the best bluecheese burger, ever. This liitle pub, whose name escapes me, had the quaintest bar, I felt like we were back in Belguim.
Here’s to a wonderful anniversary weekend.
