The Great PNW part 2

I've been journaling our vacation to Washington recently. If you missed part 1 last week, head over here to check it out!

During our stay in Anacortes, we got coffee and took the early morning ferry over to Friday Harbor for a day of exploring! The kids enjoyed the ferry ride. but I'm pretty sure that Trevor LOVED it. (I have never seen someone so excited to drive a minivan through a boat and there's a video to prove it!)

just a few snapshots

Friday Harbor

My little explorer <3

This looks peaceful, but we were really tying to keep kids from walking off the cliff. 

Bald eagles on top of the lighthouse. 

Some of our favorites in Friday Harbor

There's this ADORABLE kids shop with local goods (think fun t-shirts) and lots of items revolving around orcas. 
The Bean Cafe - they make their own salted caramel and it is so good!
Sunken Park - if you have antsy kiddos, go here! It's in the main town area, just a few blocks to the left of the main road.
The cute lighthouse - I don't remember exactly where on the island this was, but we found some interesting historical material nearby. Apparently there was once a turf war here between the Americans and British over someone killing someone else's pig. IDK. Trevor tells the story better. For more info visit here
