Cruising the San Juan Islands in October

We just finished up the 2008 cruising season on the David B in the San Juan Islands. October in the islands is my favorite time of year. It is quiet, fewer people are around, and the solitude of our anchorages provides for a unique get-away in a popular destination. Fall in the San Juans has a different feeling. The air is crisp with the smell of fallen leaves and salt water. It is a time where we might be the only ones visiting Sucia or Jones Island and it is a pleasure to share that solidtude with others on the David B.
