This state is so beautiful - there is so much to do. After two fun days in Seattle, we ventured on up to San Juan Island.
On the ferry ride over to the island.
My parents relaxing on a bench once we made it to the island.
Have you seen gas this high yet? YIKES!
Exploring the island.
Lime Kiln Point Lighthouse. We went to Lime Kiln Point because that is where the 88 whales hangout! The lighthouse is in contact with all of the boats out on the water, and they know where the whales are at all times. Unfortunately when we were there, the whales were a couple of miles up the coast, so we were not able to see them. They follow the salmon up and down the coast. Since we were on the island for only a few hours, we didn't have time to wait for them, dang!
Here I am patiently waiting for the whales to come... we are hoping to come back here and go camping for Speen's b-day in a few weeks, so maybe I'll get to see them then!
There was an awesome free jazz concert at the park. My parents enjoyed listening to the music.
All the boats in Friday Harbor.
Lance LOVED hanging out outside on the deck of the ferry!
He loved peering over the railing into the water. We saw some dolphins, it was fun!
