Orcas Island over the holidays

Over the holidays we took a couple days break and decided to go up to Orcas Island.  Located in the Puget Sound and the largest of the San Juan Islands it was the perfect place to relax. We stayed in a small cabin with great amenities and a great wood fire to keep us warm.  The cabin was located just outside of Eastsound and an easy walk to the beach.

I decided against taking my ‘real’ camera however I couldn’t resist taking a few shots with my phone. Once you accept and embrace the limitations of the iPhone it’s pretty amazing what you can do with the right apps.

Can’t wait to go back again 😉

GQ’s Seattle City Guide

I love that GQ Magazine featured Seattle in one of its recent city guides.  Considering that there are only 6 cities featured so far that’s quite the honor.  Maybe they know that Seattle is a pretty fabulous place to visit and an even better place to live.  I love their summary of the city

In the land of killer coffee and evergreens, it’s the guzzable cocktails, cooly chic restaurants, and incomparable boutiques that are really blowing our minds

They list some of my favorites from Canon, Olympic Sculpture Park and of course the 4, but they also include some new places for me to check out.  The full guide is here.
