San Juan Island

I left United States under grey, dreary skies…

Seagulls and Cormorants

… and sailed into sunny Friday Harbour on San Juan Island at around 4pm and immediately rented bikes and started exploring the island.  We rode from Friday Harbour to American Camp, approximately 21 kilometres in total.  It was a very picturesque ride, with many super well-maintained, white window-trimmed houses on 5 acre lots and an intriguing corner store with a bunch of medium sized totem poles at various states of uprightness.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get a photo of this store.

The roads had good bike lanes all the way.

At the destination point: American Point.

I was thankful that I was able to ease my body into a hot tub after the bike ride.  If you haven’t ridden a bike for a while, I find that it is your bottom that hurts the most.  While soaking, two deers walked by.  Quite surreal.

Thanks for stopping by and a happy weekend to all.
