San Juan Islands, Washington | Shrimping, Crabbing, and Digging for clams

Shrimping and Crabbing in the San Juan Islands, Washington

Our next retirement travel stop was the beautiful San Juan Islands, Washington as we find more exciting things to do in retirement. A retired Alcoa friend took us crabbing and shrimping near San Juan Island, Washington, after a morning of clam digging near Bellingham, Washington. Shrimping and crabbing were such fun activities if you are looking for things to do.

The raw beauty of these 97 islands is breathtaking. We rode in the boat for hours through the sparsely populated, forested and hilly San Juan Islands. Our friend dropped us off at Matia Island State Park for a wonderful one hour hike of solitude and beauty. Having an island all to yourself is a great experience. Washington State and the entire Pacific Northwest have been wonderful to visit this summer. We ended up catching 15 Dungeness crabs, about 50 shrimp, and enough clams for a great appetizer.

We can’t thank our friend Barry enough for his kind hospitality and generosity of spending a full day touring the San Juan Islands with us. Thanks Barry.
