Dessert on the San Juan Islands

I recently was able to take a short trip to the San Juan Islands –  a destination I highly recommend.

There were two sugary highlights of the trip. The first was in Friday Harbor on the island of San Juan. Right after exiting the ferry boat there is an idyllic ice cream shop perched on the waters edge. They offer 72 flavors of ice cream daily! I found it quite overwhelming to be faced with such a tough decision as to what flavor to get. They had everything from Vanilla to Black Licorice. Right next to the shop there are a set of benches under a gazebo where we would spend sunset sitting and watching the ferries come in while enjoying our ice cream.

We spent a day hiking and biking on Lopez Island as well. This island is incredibly quaint. When renting our bikes we asked about renting bike locks – we were immediately  laughed at and told “You’re not in LA anymore!”. Whenever we stopped we would just place our bikes in the bike racks provided at the entrance to the hikes. No locks required!

On Lopez there is the Just Heavenly Fudge Factory which sells their own amazing fudge as well as ice cream that is made on the islands as well. The store is owned and run by two friends who have a love of fudge! They offer 20 different fudge flavors. All of which are truly incredible! I brought a box home as a gift and the Peanut Butter Fudge won hands down as the best flavor.
