Ron... even tho i have lived here in the NW all my life I have never been up to the San Juans! Isnt that crazy!!
Speaking as someone who lived in the Seattle/Portlant/Vancouver for a dozen years - getting up to the SanJuans on a pretty regular basis during the first half of that time - but has subsequently moved out to the flatlands of Indiana...
GET YOUR BACKSIDE UP TO THOSE ISLANDS!!! Do it today! If not today, do it this weekend! At LEAST get yourself up to Anacortes and hop a ferry as a foot passenger and just ride around on it!
There are precious few guantantees in life - but this is one: You WILL enjoy the trip and kick yourself for not going sooner. I really miss standing out on the decks, feeling the wind, sometimes the mist. Hearing not much but the water splashing under the ferryboat (their engines are VERY quiet). Watching the wildlife, cruising past the sometimes mist-shrouded little islands. I'm goin' nuts just thinking about it!
