Johns Island

I'm taking a brief break from packing to upload a few photos from Johns Island, where I spent a couple of days with Ollie, Nancy, and the Bäck family—our shared Gothenburg friends, who were helping the hosts with rebuilding their wooden deck.

The seaplane ride was everything I hoped for: quick, comfortable, and incredibly scenic. Also, pretty darn cool.

A view from the cabin, with the construction site in the foreground; in the background, the dinner table, set for a sunset supper.

Some snapshots from the island.

The air was warm, and the water...freezing. I made the foolish mistake of promising the Bäck kids that I would swim with them, and being a person who takes such commitments very seriously, swimming it was. I'd say it was 13°C (55°F), tops, and thus not very pleasant. However, I can now proudly say that I have swum in the Salish Sea—that's gotta be worth something, right?

A quick, yet lovely getaway. Thank you, Ollie and Nancy!
