Sunny San Juan Island!

IMG_0562Mr. F and I took a ferry to San Juan Island super early on Friday morning. Apparently, Mr. F was worried about long ferry lines, so we got up at 5:30am! (This is a big deal because I am not a morning person!) We were able to get on a 8:30 am ferry and arrived at Friday Harbor by 11am. The ferry had to go slower than normal due to heavy fog. IMG_0576 The South end of the island was covered in fog, so we went as far North as possible.IMG_0640 Our first stop on the island was the San Juan Island Sculpture Park near Roche Harbor. IMG_0604 IMG_0620 We were surprised how built up the Hotel de Haro IMG_0652 and Roche Harbor had become, since we were last there 10 years ago!

We also stopped at the English Camp IMG_0672 but drove through Lime Kiln Point since it was still pretty foggy. We had lunch at the Cask and Schooner in Friday Harbor and the sun came out! IMG_0698We saw a seal swim under the docks too!

IMG_0706We decided to take the canoe out at Snug Harbor Resort for the afternoon. We found a tiny uninhabited island with lots of birds. We looked for otters and whales but they must have been hiding.IMG_0732

On Saturday morning, it was very sunny with very little fog!  IMG_0746We went to San Juan County Park IMG_0747 and Lime Kiln Point. IMG_0805 Transient whales were seen the day before, but we mostly saw seagulls and other birds. We did see cool tidepools with anenomesIMG_0790 and old lime kilns! IMG_0837

We wandered through Friday Harbor in the afternoon and saw a few mermaids!IMG_0855 We also went to the San Juan Vineyards for wine tasting and saw a camel! IMG_0858 The camel’s name is Mona and she’s for sale! IMG_0859 She is very sweet and didn’t mind taking pictures with us. IMG_0862 I want my mom to buy her for the farm! IMG_0864 What do you think, Mom?IMG_0865 She already shares a pasture with a horse and an alpaca!

We went to Fourth of July Beach and the American Camp for the afternoon!  IMG_0882 The tide was out and we got a little sunburnt!  IMG_0880

IMG_0966 On Sunday morning, we put our car in line for the ferry before 9am and got breakfast. We could not believe how amazing the weather was for the ferry ride back to Anacortes! IMG_0982 It was in the mid 60s! IMG_0987 On our way home to Seattle, we drove through the tulip farms and saw lovely fields of sunny daffodils. IMG_1022 IMG_1021 We even got back into town early enough to enjoy an Easter lunch with my grandparents too!
