Friday Harbor and Jones Island

Sep 27, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird


We spent a beautiful morning in the quaint town of Friday Harbor. We visited the whaling museum and spent time exploring the shops and restaurants along the waterfront. After a quick sail during lunch, we arrived at Washington’s Jones Island State Park where we hiked, kayaked, and tried stand-up paddleboarding. The mild, sunny fall weather made exploring the island all the better.
