A highlight for me on my drive around San Juan Island was the Pelindaba Lavender Farm. Not only are the lavender fields with large metal sculptures beautiful even in the off-season, the shop and informational displays are a must-do.
I have never encountered so many enticing lavender products all made from plants on a certified organic farm. They range from luxury gift sets to dog biscuits and people cookies (I highly recommend the lavender shortbread!) I did a little Christmas shopping and noted that they have shops with their products in other locations as well as mail order.
There are picnic tables under huge trees for a relaxing shady lunch.
The Farm is just seven miles from the town of Friday Harbor, in the south-center of the island.
