Ferry to Friday Harbor – Excerpts From a Photo Shoot

We spent a long weekend in Seattle for Father’s Day and I wanted to share some shots from that trip besides my shaved head at a Sounders game from last weeks post.

On Friday, we spent the day going up to Henry Island. Henry Island is located on the north end of the Strait of Juan de Fuca in a group of islands called the San Juan Islands. This island is the most western island of the group and sits right across from Vancouver Island, British Columbia (just north of Victoria). To get to Henry Island, we needed to take a ferry (car and pedestrian) from Anacortes, Washington to Friday Harbor, which is located on San Juan Island proper. From Friday Harbor, we took our car across that island to the north end until we came into Roche Harbor. We did make a stop by Roche Harbor to go to an oyster farm, which is owned by the people we were going to see on Henry Island. After touring the oyster farm, we went back to Roche Harbor, parked the car and took a small boat that was left for us by family members over to Henry Island. I am going to be sharing a number of the shots that I took that day, but am breaking it down into what I think will be about three posts over the next few weeks. Today, I wanted to share some of the shots I captured on the ferry ride over to Friday Harbor.

This capture is some of the smaller islands along the channel. The weather that day was picture perfect. It can get kind of rough traversing these channels when the weather is inclement.
