Colophon Cafe is one of my fav places to eat. Their food is soooo good. I love the salmon bagel and tortilla soup. The Pickford theater's just around the bend there, it shows the best indie films I've ever seen. My parents used to fly Blanchard mountain over there by Chuckanut, we could point out some old logging roads that lead to some pretty breathtaking views.
Deception Pass is about 2 miles from my mom's house. I guess it's not all that interesting to me anymore, but that comes with living there for so long. I know all the great beaches up that way, awesome photography spots. I'll have to give ya'll a tour.
Another great day trip is Friday Harbor (by ferry), we rent scooters up there and wander the island. I haven't been there in a few years. Also Shaw island, I know some of the nuns, it's strange to see them wandering around tending the island.
Quent and I grew up taking the passes (hang gliding kids and all) so we could probably do a little touring there too. I promise we won't torture your girl too much.
