Another week of projected good weather inspired more self-isolation on the high seas. Once again the challenge was to plan in itinerary that included only uninhabited (or very sparsely inhabited) places.
We began our journey with a two-and-a-half hour cruise to little Jones Island. Jones, which lies just off the western coast of Orcas Island, is a favorite – ours and everyone else’s. It’s usually too crowded to make a stop worthwhile. But under present circumstances, it was pretty much all ours.
We began our visit with a two mile loop walk around the western half of the Island.
We continued our visit to Jones the next day by walking the eastern, slightly longer, loop with our Anacortes friends Greg and Marlene.
Jones Island is particularly nice when it’s all yours, but after three days, we decided that it was time to move on.
