A leisurely spin around the smallest of the four San Juan islands served by the state ferries holds some quiet revelations. Walk the grounds of the school if it’s closed; you may see the alphabet spelled out in pieces of driftwood, mounted in rows on an exterior wall. Riding the main road, where a car goes by every fifteen minutes or so, you may startle a deer bounding off into the opposite ditch, hind hooves kicking soil onto the road in its haste.
