It is also true that this is sometimes a miserable time to be other places in the US. Which really doesn't hurt either (that is also what makes being here in the winter so stinkin' tolerable too.)
So if you are planning a trip to the PNW or to Vashon Island itself the summer is the time to come.
So if you are visiting in the off season visit- over Halloween and go Trick-or-Treating downtown, or Visit around the holidays and attend one of the varied version of craft fairs or support a local business downtown. Or if you are a really good planner visit during a very low tide and explore the sea life around Vashon...
If you are visiting in the off season though I reccomend 1 thing...stay in a place with a woodstove or fireplace and prepare to enjoy the peacefulness of it. Watch the moss grow...lavish in the green, heat up by the fire, go on a walk and notice the smell of all the little bugs turning over the earth...this is Vashon.

I got off the bus the other morning before I got on the Water Taxi (on the north end ferry dock) and the sun was coming up.
It was glorious.
Now, 2 weeks later the sun is already higher in the sky at 8:03 when I usually get off the bus. Alleluia.
