Friday Harbor was a zoo when we arrived and so we decided to try and eat something on the other side of the island in Roche Harbor.
It was nice, very resorty, because, well, I think it was a resort village... but it had a nice dock for the kids to look at sea life and a nice garden to walk through. As you can see, I liked the flowers and the brickwork.
Also, being a former Waste water worker myself, I really appreciated the fecal humor of this sign...
I enjoyed watching these people get prepped for their kayak excursion. Someday I would love to try this as well, but I didn't think that it would be the best "first-time" activity for a 7 month pregnant lady.
We did go to a lavender farm on the island. It was just beautiful. Sculptures and every type of lavender you could think of. I did make a new motto though.... Smells good, tastes BAD. I have tried eating several food items flavored with lavender, and each time I think "I shouldn't have done that" Really, you just can't top the smell... the taste is just not right, no.
The day came to an end with a view of Mt. Baker from the ferry ride back to Anacortes. The weather had been cloudy since we arrived so I hadn't realized that the mountain was so close. We can even see it from our house... Just lovely. I love vacation, why can't we have more?? Would it get too mundane? It is so nice to have the Dad and the kids and I all together and not doing chores. We still have a few more days of this bliss. (Although, I can't help but daydream about my trip to Bend, only about 10 more days!!!!)
