We live on an island–Orcas Island, in the San Juans, in farthest western Washington State–and there are lots of lovely woods here. I’ve written before about how much I love walking in the woods, how I walk nearly every day up the country road outside our house, to pick up the mail, or just to observe the wildlife and get some fresh air into my lungs.
But the cool thing about islands? They’re, you know, surrounded by water.
That means there are a lot of beaches here.
