We cruised over to Roche Harbor on San Juan Island yesterday (from Fox Cove on Sucia Island) — about 20 nautical miles. We needed a couple things at the store and figured we'd skip a night of cooking and have dinner at McMillen's.
We were at Roche Harbor with our friends Jake & Patti on New Year's Eve last year. It's always decorated so festively for the holidays:
We ate in the bistro/bar (the little rounded room on the right) and had a few small plates (oysters, wild mushrooms in butter and garlic, a caesar salad, and then shared the lobster risotto with a side of green beans). It was all delicious.
It's still quite cold up here, and a few clouds have moved in, but it's such a lovely time of year to be cruising the islands.
Here's yesterday's map:
