Friday Harbor

Have you ever been to Friday Harbor on San Juan Island?  We had a bit of cash left in our vacation fund after our Labor Day trip, so we decided to take the ferry to Friday Harbor for dinner on Saturday.  Spontaneous!  Beautiful!  Delicious!

We caught the 2:00 ferry from Anacortes and the 6:30 ferry back -- just three-and-a-half hours on Friday Harbor to knock around town, but just enough for seeing a few shops, getting some photos, and enjoying a wonderful dinner at Downriggers.  Next time we may rent mopeds and tour the whole island, especially the lighthouse and the lavender farm.

Between Tom and me, we got nearly 600 pictures!  Here are just a few.  (Good thing we've got digital cameras, not film cameras!)

The Yakima docked at Anacortes
The trip begins
We saw dozens of cormorants on the pilings
Now I know what they mean by
"I'd rather be sailing"!

Inside Pelindaba Lavender store
Corn-crusted halibut,  Umm. humm!
Back on the ferry
Beautiful textures
The moon in the eastern sky
The sun setting in the western sky
Back at our starting point
