Our First Anniversary

I can't believe it has been a year since our wedding. The time certainly has flown by. Justin and I decided to celebrate our first anniversary in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island and do a whale watching tour. We left Friday afternoon and took the ferry from Anacortes.

Here we are on the ferry, a really beautiful day.

We stayed at the Tucker House Inn Bed and Breakfast, a very quaint historic home.

That afternoon we explored the port and had some dinner and ice cream by the water. On Saturday we ventured out on the Sea Lion with San Juan Safaris and were able to see a bald eagle, several porpoises, seals and 2 resident Orcas from the K Pod. I have always been fascinated by whales, especially Orcas, so was pretty excited to see some in their natural habitat.

It was tricky to photograph them since they'd only surface for a few seconds at a time, but Justin got some good shots.

We really enjoyed the whale watching tour and supposedly lucked out since this was the first day in 12 days that there had been any whale sightings. We did however underdress. It had been so hot in Seattle that week, we didn't expect such a significant drop in the temperature. We obviously knew it would be cooler on the water, but not that cold. Thank goodness the boat had blankets for everyone. Later that evening we had a romantic dinner and celebrated a beautiful 1 year anniversary. Many more to come! Here are a few more photo highlights.
