San Juan Island is still the place to be!
As the winter season is approaching there is still plenty to do on the island and the Harrison House Suites is still bustling with guests! Weather has been good, a little rain here and there but still pretty warm and inviting during the day, perfect time to go out for a fall walk and see some of the changing trees or cuddle up in front of a fire at the inn and watch a good movie while eating popcorn. Warm up in the chill of the night with your private hot tub, or read a good book down by the harbor while the sun is shining. Check out the Farmer’s Market still going on Saturdays now at the high school come and support our local farmers! Theatre productions and events still happening come and see for yourself! The winter season is a perfect time for those who are watching budgets during these wallet constricting times. Many restaurants are participating in the Savor the San Juans and have plenty of 3 courses for $30 specials throughout October. Our restaurant,Coho, will be supporting these hard times throughout the winter season continuing the 3 courses for $30 special so families and couples can continue to go out and enjoy a nice meal without the worry of prices. We are also having specials for the holidays with four course meals for Thanksgiving and Christmas for only $45 a person. With Salad, Appetizer, Choice of Entree, and Choice of dessert from a special holiday inspired menu. For the new year we are also be featuring a Champagne tasting dinner!

As a new person to the island (3 months now) I was amazed to see Halloween out here, streets were safely blocked off for the young ones to go trick-or-treating seeing soem very original costumes as well including a deviled egg (devil horns and a white t-shirt with a yellow circle painted on). The children also had a parade with lots of cotumes and pumpkins, the restaurants all doing Savor the San Juans and pumpkin pie being a special along with toasted pumpkin seeds and everyone dressed up at their jobs was quite entertaining!
