A little bit about Lisette.....

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest I feel most alive surrounded by trees and breathing in the fresh mountain air.

When I am not working you will most likely find me spending time outdoors, volunteering with my church and exploring this beautiful planet with my family. 

This is my place to share my passion for life and to encourage you to take time to find the extraordinary in your life.

Spring on San Juan Island

Spring on San Juan Island

Spring time is filled with flowers, sunshine, rain and the excitement which comes with longer days. We love visiting places in the shoulder seasons of Spring and Fall either before the busy tourist season or after. 

Here are a few of our favorite spots on the island to check out:

Cattle Point: for gorgeous bluff hikes, eagle spotting and serenity

New Day Garden: our favorite roadside pit stop to pick up dahlia tubers and fresh flowers. 

Friday Harbor Farmer's Market: for fresh baked goods, tomato plants, barbecued oysters and anything else which might catch your eye.

Some of our favorite spots to stay include: 

Bird Rock Hotel, Earthbox Inn and Lakedale Resort.

Roche Harbor: for fresh donuts at Lime Kiln Cafe, delicious salads at Madrona Bar and Grill and kayaking with San Juan Safaris. 

Some of our favorite places to eat on the island include:

The Bait Shop: for fast and delicious fish & chips

Coho: for fresh, local, thoughtfully made food

Duck Soup Inn: (temporarily closed, but slated to reopen soon) local, creative food in a cozy setting

Madrona Bar & Grill: for enormous and gigantic salads
