Kitty B’s Lavender

My favorite lavender operations have a dreamy setting with nice views. Kitty B’s is one of those operations.

The farm is beautifully manicured and has the requisite gazebo that adds just the right touch.

Like most of our lavender farms, Kitty B’s has a residence on site. Its garden is a knockout.

That house…again

I’ve previously posted pictures of this house here and here. I thought I was done with it. But then came landscaping: trees have been planted on the three open sides around the place. My snarky side suggests they were a gift from the neighbors.

I suppose if you’re going to the effort and expense of building a house in the San Juan Islands why settle for a humble cabin? We saw some fine dwellings on our Puget Sound Express trip. Some would be nice on any sort of site.

Others took advantage of the rugged landscape

If you’re going to go so far I suppose you may as well have room for a crowd.

No quick stroll to a grocery store or theater from these spots but I expect there are plenty of other diversions if you can pull off a house like this.

Lest you think the San Juan Islands are uninhabited, I’ll share images of some of the beachfront housing we saw on our trip with Puget Sound Express.

Beachfront property? Beautiful, remote island setting? Spectacular water view?

What’s not to like?

The settings are incomparable.
