Best places to kiss on San Juan Island
“Is not the kiss the very autograph of love?” – Henry Finck What can be more romantic than visiting a small island with breathtaking scenery and staying in a cute small town, where you can walk to everything?

We visit often and retrace our steps…and kiss, with eyes and hearts wide open.

And the best part: all seasons are absolutely stunning. So really, all you have to figure out is which season is your San Juan Island season.  Or perhaps they all are!
