View of Friday Harbor from the ferry
Some of us preferred the view from behind the windows to the right.
While on San Juan Island, we visited the Palindaba Lavender Farm. It was a gorgeous setting with a field full of pastel purples. The numbers of bees in the fields was also astonishing. Their buzzing provided a constant background hum while we walked through the rows of puffy lavender plants.
Lavender fields forever
I spy a Craig.

While on San Juan Island, we also went whale watching. It was a first for me and because of my recent experience with boats, it was also a first for me trying over-the-counter motion sickness meds. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down any orcas, but we did stumble upon some humpback whales and I didn't get motion sickness! Yay!
Weather rolling in while we're in search of whales.
Aaaand here comes the rain!

It didn't take long for the rest of the paparazzi to show up...
