Friday we met up with my dad and family, and we took a ferry from Anacortes to Friday Harbor.
This was the girls' first ferry ride. It wasn't much of a morning for viewing the Puget Sound and San Juan Islands, but we still spent part of the ride outside in the fog.
I made use of the $80 ferry ride, and grabbed a free map of the island. Our first stop was English Camp, from the time of the Pig War. (Google it- this was a real thing...) English camp is on the northern part of the island.
We enjoyed the beach with all of the shells. We brought home a bag full of them.
We had a picnic lunch at Roche Harbor. Afterwards we drove around the island and down to the American Camp.
We hiked down to Grandma's Cove to play at the beach and check out the tide pools.
Ice cream at Friday Harbor.
Maddie said this was her "Beeg Boat."
The ferry that was to take us back was an hour late. We had lots of time in the car. The kids showed us how to make Capri Suns "fancy"- stick your pinkie up.
