"VACATION" PIX ....

A stormy view out the window looking North East toward Shaw and Lopez Islands. We are on the South East tip of San Juan Island - Griffen Bay.
BL on the beach of American Camp on the South West tip of San Juan Island - Cattle Point way in front of her. The Pig War was "fought" on San Juan Island about 1850 with the Brits. This camp was run by Commander Roberts - of Roberts' Rules of Order fame!

Me at Lime Kiln Light House on the West side - good place to see the resident ORCAs - saw none!

Roast hog dogs on a smokey fire!

Lots of Bald Eagles!


BL and a HUGE Madrona tree...


Found a few agates! See it!


That Treat? That's it??? Pssshhhhhh .....

We got just a very weeny small hint of the tsunami. How awful for that part of Japan. So fragile we live on this earth....

I'm glad you had a good time. With me and the hubby both starting new jobs next month, we may be doing more short getaways too, instead of long vacations.

Looks like a great vacation spot!

The Princess wishes to inform you that she is not "The Princess and the Pea" Princess, but the Princess who rules all and should get a whole bag of treats!

Glad you got to enjoy your vacation on San Juan Island and see some bald eagles. They really are amazing. Last summer I got to seen an orca on the ferry from Anacortes to Sidney. It was one of the highlights of my summer. We had a hint of the tsunami here on Vancouver Island - fluctuating water levels in Esquimalt Harbour but nothing like the destruction in Japan. Amazing to think something happening so far away can affect us all the way over here.

It looks wonderful. I never go anywhere, so traveling through blog land is most fun!
