Since cycling around the islands in Washington's Sound, Vashon stands out as my favorite. It's rural with mostly modest homes with small farms rather than the luxury estates common on the other islands. Favoring of this island was strengthened during our recent trip with the add-on of Maury Island. Vashon's small sister island offered fantastic views of Rainier and featured ample water-side riding time.
Mt. Rainier (viewed through my sunglasses) makes the tugboat look cute and tiny.
