Friday Harbor

Sep 16, 2017 - National Geographic Quest


Friday Harbor is one of the more iconic towns of in the Pacific Northwest and is sometimes referred to as the gateway to the San Juan Islands. We were treated to a day full of sunshine and blue skies as we explored the museums and farmer’s market on shore. All the activity made an afternoon aboard all the more enjoyable to soak in the decadently calm weather.

About the Author

Ian Strachan

Naturalist/Certified Photo Instructor

One steady constant in Ian’s life has been the ocean. Born by the rocky shores of mid-coast Maine, his family repatriated to far north Queensland in Australia early on in his life where he became a dual-citizen and sparked his passion for exploring new environments. Living only an hour away from the Great Barrier Reef served to direct, if not focus, the exhilaration of discovery and set him on his current path. Returning to native soil for education, Ian was fascinated by altogether too many subjects, leaving him with a bachelor’s degree from Wheaton College in Psychobiology, focusing on animal behavior and perception, and with minors in Astronomy, History, and Environmental Science.
