    cutting lavender

    In July three or four of the island's lavender farms open their grounds to visitors. You can walk the grounds, visit with the locals, and buy lavender products such as soaps. There are also cooking lessons and live music.

    Bicycling the island

    by trvlrtom Written Jul 10, 2007

    The island is crossed by many quiet, two lane roads, perfect for cycling. Traffic is fairly light, except if you are near the ferry terminal as the cars get off. This area is not a difficult ride, but there are a lot of hills.

    During summer weekends, visiting drivers need to be alert to cyclists like these who stopped along the road for a minor repair.

    Robinson Park Beach & Lighthouse

    by trvlrtom Written Jul 10, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Robinson Park is on the eastern side of the Maury Island part of Vashon Island. The rocky beach is good for beachcombing, and the lighthouse provides an attractive backdrop; a pleasant place for a stroll with broad views of Puget Sound and Seattle.

    harbor at Burton

    At the southern end of the island is the crossroads village of Burton. There is not much here: a few shops, a good restaurant and beautiful views of the harbor.

    This year the festival will be on July 13, 14 and 15, 2007 (it is usually the second weekend in July). And yes, any fool can be in the parade. I've been in it twice!
