Grey winter days in Seattle make me want to go to one of these places

In the northwest:

* On Vancouver Island, the Aerie or the Wickaninnish Inn. Ok probably cold and grey right now too but would be great in the summer.
* The Stephanie Inn has always been a winner for us. And we love Cannon Beach.
* Further south is the Tu Tu’ Tun, we’ve heard good things about.

Further afield:

* We love Kona Village but we may want to try the other islands. Turtle Bay Hotel looks like a good place to try on Oahu.
* The nice folks at Exclusive Resorts have recommended Miraval, and we’re game to try that…
