At age 5, second-generation islander Johannes and his father paddled along San Juan Island, their kayaks crossing paths with troops of orca whales. This foray ignited the young adventurer’s twin passions for kayaking and stewardship. Now, Johannes’ team of outdoor enthusiasts deftly navigates the waters surrounding San Juan Island, imparting knowledge of marine wildlife to paddlers. Guides not only skim the region’s waterways, but lead expeditions across the islands during multiday tours. Groups may paddle along remote islands in search of seabirds and lost tugboat captains, and then hop on bicycles to pedal down rural back roads dotted with lavender and alpaca farms.
Working across 16 locations around Puget Sound, the friendly folks at Savvy Mattress Outlet showcase popular, name-brand mattresses from Simmons, Serta, and Sealy, aiming to help sleepers of all stripes find their ideal match. They also offer next- and same-day delivery service, during which hired staffers will remove your old mattress, take it for one last spin down the stairs, and break the hard news to the kids—who were originally told that it was going to a country farm filled with other mattresses.
