Lopez Island

For our vacation time this year, Rachel and I took a short camping trip with our good friend Brook out to Lopez Island, WA. Brook had been before, and so he showed us some of the best spots. We camped at Odlin Park, just a mile from the ferry terminal once you get to the island – and from here we drove around the island and explored. The locals are very friendly, and almost always wave to you from their…
