Why yes, yes we do have cool critters! This pic was taken from my sailboat in the Straight of Juan De Fuca. Beautiful place to sail!

Cheers!

Northwet is great. I love these foggy, cold riding conditions.



When the sun comes out, half the sky is still overcast. . Good for photgraphy.



Amazing place, brings out the colors in everything.



City is mostly under a cover of fog, did i mention that i love foggy weather :)

Lummi Island. Yea, we have too many islands in the PNW and you can only ride at 45 mph max. Too slow a speed for other riders.


Then of course there's the Tulip Festival in Mount Vernon which only happens in April for a month. Not worth coming over for a short bloom (the festival runs for a month but the tulips only bloom for a week or two before they are cut and exported).

Don't come just send us your money for snow removal services...

There is no riding here, the mountains are closed nine-months of the year...




It sucks you won't have any fun...

And our river crossings are a bitch, you will need to invest in the biggest motorcycle you can get to make it... (Those aren't panniers they are pontoons to help float the bike across)
