Exploring Friday Harbor. San Juan Sailing Trip – August 17, 2018

August 18, 2018

I have not been to Friday Harbor, Alix has not been for some time. We spent today roaming through this quaint little town exploring what it has to offer us mainlanders. I am becoming more convinced that we need to live somewhere in the islands.

First stop was the Whale Museum. It was spendy to get in but highly informative. We enjoyed learning about the whales in Puget Sound. The Whale Museum has been operating here for decades. They maintain the main board for whale siting and are the first point of contact when a distressed whale is found.

Alix adopted L-119, Joy. Yep, that is right, we are foster parents to an Orca Whale. She is excited about it. We went to a bookstore and got books on Orcas after the museum.

Here is a photo of Joy

After a lovely lavender latte at Bean Cafe we headed back to the San Juan Island Brewery to sample those last five beers. Delicious.

We wandered around town more, saw some sights, had a good time. Mostly I am tired of writing so I will end with more photos.
