Friday Harbor, Washington

Oct 25, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird

Today we awoke next to Spieden Island, en route to a very special location on San Juan Island. Friday Harbor is a small, seasonal town filled with interesting shops and several walking docks. A local harbor seal is famous and frequently is seen perusing the docks. Friday Harbor is home to The Whale Museum where we had the opportunity to learn about the wonderful wildlife that lives in the San Juans. Guests were invited to the polyculture land of Aurora Farms, where we interacted with animals and experienced life on a farm.
