If any of you are likely to come and visit, you will probably need some encouragement to travel this far. Yesterday, the weather cooperated and I found myself with a little time to make a quick tour and photograph some of my favorite spots. Enjoy
Originally an old Hardware store, but now a well run bar and restaurant
One of island artist Jeff Hoyt's roadside creations
We don't just have pet stores, we also cater for Giraffes
My favourite nursery
Original site for Seattles Best Coffee. SBC was bought out by Starshmucks and an Islander bought the premises and recreated this Island hot spot
Inside for coffee
Bert and Ernie meet their creator
These little guys are the creator of Gene Amondsen, who runs for President every 4 years on the Abstinence ticket. Not many takers on Vashon.
Burton Coffee shop
Inner Quartermaster Harbour
Capt John's House. Behind this rough exterior is an amazingly crafted Japanese Tea house.
Appearances are often deceptive
Seriously deranged Islander, Cool Gary, used to hitch hike into town carrying his favorite chain saw. He was hit by a car and is now in chainsaw heaven.
Next door to Capt. John
One of our produce farms
Our neighbor, Sea Breeze farm
Island King apples, Shredded beet Greens and Leek
Golden Beets, Sprouts and Seabreeze Pork
Pork chop with Calvados. Cream sauce with apple, leek, and beet greens.
Roasted golden beets and brussel sprouts,
Come and enjoy the fun
