A spur-of-the-moment trip to the San Juan Islands is not the easiest to plan in the middle of summer (or for that matter, throughout the year). Ferry reservations can be difficult to obtain and accommodations are usually at peak season rates. I wanted to head up to Orcas Island and had a few days to get away and no intention of spending a chunk of it in Seattle traffic or waiting in ferry lines.
