One of our favorite islands to visit is Guemes Island, just a few minute's ferry ride away from Anacortes. It is not on the Washington State Ferry route. The ferry is funded and maintained by the island. We go several times a year to enjoy the beautiful scenery. This year we searched for barns - and found some lovely ones.
A small red barn, probably used for storage - perhaps supplies for horses.
A large working farm on the island. Not many of those left now.
This one is being converted into a home
Hiding back in the woods, another working farm
And I must share my favorite house on the island. Everything is painted the same color of red - house, window frames, doors. It sits in a neatly mowed lawn and is simply majestic.
A small wooden barn with trim to match the house, sits nearby.
And even the little garden shed gets a touch of the red paint from the house. A wonderful visit to a great island.
