Week In Pictures: Summer Trip to Nana’s

Saturday we arrived home at 11:40 pm from a week long visit (kids and I, Aaron came on Wednesday) to Nana’s! We had a load of fun playing, swimming at Aunties lake, trying to beat Nana at UNO and taking a trip out to San Jaun Island with the hopes of seeing some Orcas. Here are some of the pictures!

Friday Harbor

After getting off the ferry, we stopped to see where the whales had been spotted most, grabbed a cup of coffee and then headed to the weat side of the island. We saw this little pull off, that actually had a trail and stopped for a few to see what we could see. No Whales, but this Eagle sure was pretty!

Look Out Point

It was so lovely out there! We are already planning when we can go back!


My sweeties! 🙂

Orca Statue

After the look out we headed to Lime Kiln State Park to have lunch and explore and see if we could see those whales!

Flora in the look out tree! All the kids took turns with Nana’s binoculars and this seemed to be the popular tree to be in!

Gulls were going crazy for something just under the water.


After we drove north, we headed back to Friday Harbor for a coffee refill and then headed south on the West side of the island. Poor Nana was feeling awful with a nasty cold.

South Beach 1

South Beach was WINDY!

I LOVE the ocean and waves.

More waves. We didnt stay at South Beach very long because it was SO wet and cold. We went down to the tip of the island to explore a bit more.

While we were at the south end of the island we saw this guy!

seal 2

We drove back up to Lime Kiln park for one last watch. We were all getting rather wet and cold, but had fun exploring, and we saw another seal.


And a harbor porpoises just as we were leaving.

Whale Mes

Aaron dropped us off at the whale mesume and then parked the car in the ferry line. The kids got to learn some more, spend their allowance and warm up a bit! It was a wonderful trip despite colds, rain and wind.


On the ferry back one of the Fire fighters on board let Andrew and Flora try on his hat. It made Andrews day!


Driving home Saturday we saw this lovely sunset.
