Story

I discovered the San Juan Islands while living in Seattle Washington for 14 years. I had a 28' Bayliner cruiser and I was taking my family up to the San Juan Islands to Roche Harbor. On the way up in Haro straight, my boat became surrounded by 16 Orca Whales. They were just beautiful. They were swimming upside down under my boat, spy hopping and seemed very curious to who we were.

There were Bald Eagles in the trees and I just fell in love with the San Juans. As my "Welcome Home" album is about the things I care about most in this world a song about the San Juans needed to be included. We were fortunate enough to buy property there on Mitchell Bay 13 years ago and built on it 11 years ago, just my favorite place in the world.

San Juan Island

I’m heading north on Haro Straight

under way to Mitchell Bay.

A Dall’s porpoise rides on my wake

While some harbor seals play.

A bald eagle sits in a tree

Staring out to sea.

 

San Juan Island

The most beautiful place to me.

San Juan Island

It’s like paradise, heavenly.

All my worries, all my cares

Disappear up there

I could stay forever in San Juan Island.

 

The sun is setting to the west

And the sky is turning gold.

Near the lighthouse, a pod of whales

Are just swimming to and fro.

A large Orca jumps near the shore

Who could ask for more.

 

 In San Juan Island

The most beautiful place to me.

San Juan Island

It’s like paradise, heavenly.

All my worries, all my cares

Disappear up there

I could stay forever in San Juan Island.

 

Sitting here with a glass of wine.

There’s nowhere else I’d rather be

Then on this Island spending time

With you and you here with me.

 

 In San Juan Island

The most beautiful place to me.

San Juan Island

It’s like paradise, heavenly.

All my worries, all my cares

Disappear up there.

I could stay forever in San Juan Island.
