San Juan Islands make the bucket list

The new edition of “1,000 Places To See Before You Die” lists the San Juan Islands as place number 899.

The Friday Harbor House and the Whale Museum made the list at number 900.

The updated edition of the book by Patricia Schultz offers 200 new entries, 25 additional countries, and more than 500 full-color photographs.

Schultz said she has been working on the revision since the original edition came out in 2003.

“I began thinking of what I wanted to add and what changes I wanted to make — that is the nature of the beast in the world of travel books,” said Schultz. “Things are forever changing.”
