Leaving San Juan Island

Before checking out, the girls wanted to go kayaking again. Eva wanted to go on a kayak by herself and we argued but she insisted, so we let her and she did great.

Before going back to Friday Harbor and the ferry, we checked out the English Camp, where the British soldiers lived during the Pig War between the US and Britain. It’s interesting history and was news to me.

San Juan Islands

For an end of summer trip, we booked a couple nights at Snug Harbor Resort. That means we had to drive to Anacortes to get on a 1-hour ferry. Ferries are much more enjoyable when they’re rare compared to our life on Vashon Island when ferries were a hardship.

We got to San Juan Island and had lunch at San Juan Island Brewing, walked around Friday Harbor and then drove to the other side of the island to Mitchell Bay.

We had dinner and picked up some groceries in Roche Harbor.
