Thank you, Jerry Hulse, for coming through like a champ once more with your article of July 26. I took your advice and went to Lopez Island in Washington state's San Juan Islands. What I found was a place for total solitude and relaxation. This is what people do there best, and I took full advantage. Being a travel writer, this is just what I needed.
However, may I say to readers that if you are walking off the ferry, you must call your point of destination ahead and notify them of the time of your ferry arrival, as the inns are quite a distance. The MacKaye Harbor Inn, a quaint bed and breakfast where I was fortunate enough to stay, is a good 11 miles from the ferry dock.
