San Juan Islands
Ferry ride to San Juan.
The ferry ride gave me more than enough time for some Cruis'n.
I set a top 10 score on the Chicago track.
I feel a little like cattle as we were let off the ferry.
Welcome to San Juan!
Bike ride to Line Kiln Point
The 18 mile round trip was a grind on our hotel's complementary 1-speed cruiser
but the farmland and coastal scenery made it well worth it
Kate nears the top of a 1 mile incline. A quad-killer on the way up but a gorgeous, viscereal breeze on the way back down.
We stop to take in the scenery and catch our breath.
The coastal views take the rest of my breath away.
They say it's overcast and cloudy in Washington, but when the clouds look like this, who's complaining?
A good 9 miles across the island, Lime Kiln Point finally welcomes us.
At the lookout, we're instantly rewarded with glimpses of several orca pods
popping up beneath the shimmering water.
There are LOTS of them!
We leave San Juan the next day at sunrise.
