Sucia Island, Cruising the San Juan Islands:

I thought it would fun to share some of our more favorite destinations in the San Juan Islands.  We have been cruising here since 2008 so we have many “favorites” but Sucia Island is a regular and we try to make at least three or four visits a year there.

A helpful article on less labor intensive clam digging. Combined with the right clamming tools, this technique will ensure you leave the beach with plenty of clam meat. Easter Saturday and we are heading out to one of my favorite activities here in the San Juan Islands; digging clams! There is truly no more beautiful spot to be living than here.
