Welcome to the Camano Island Blog!

Living on Camano Island is the best! The weather is very mild and receives less rain than other areas, we get 17-20 inches of rain per year versus surrounding areas with almost 34 inches per year. What a HUGE difference! Read the rest of this entry »


Today starts the fun and exciting treasure hunt. I will be hiding my clue balls in a community site on Camano Island. Good luck and I can’t wait to hear from you.

Pacific Northwest Glass Quest Is Here

What a fun event that is happening in the Stanwood and Camano Island Area right now.
This is the 7th Annual Glass Quest where businesses hide clue balls and then the reward
is a hand blown Glass Treasure made by Mark and Marcus Ellinger. It is an amazing
and time had by all.
For my Pacific Northwest Glass Quest Event, I will be hosting an Open House on Sunday the
21st from 1:00-4:00. It will be held in a shop that I have listed on the north end of
Camano Island. I will have a table set up, so just put your name in and we will pick
the winner at 4:00. You do not need to be present to win. I will just call your phone and
say "Congratulations, You are the winner!"
I will see you next Sunday, the 21st.

Beautiful Camano Island

Camano Island has so much to offer. Check out this great view of the Olympic Mountains….the first snowfall for the year has already happened. It arrived on Sunday, November 1. The sparkling snow capped mountains are always a delightful sight from my home on the west side of Camano Island. I am very fortunate to have this gorgeous view and I would be happy to help you find your views of choice. It could be a view of the water, mountains or just a private quiet setting.
