Default Pirep for trip to Friday Harbor

Today, in spite of early morning rain, we flew over to Friday Harbor and rented a car for the day and toured the island. There were some morning clouds but the view on the flight over was great. I flew over and Bonnie flew back.



The view of Friday Harbor on down wind leg. It is only a 15 min walk to the ferry dock from the airport.


View on final to RW16 at Friday Harbor

Note the taxiway construction.

Two great RV10s parked and patiently waiting our return


Lighthouse along the west coast at Limekiln State Park.


Turtleback Mountain on Orcas Island


View of Point Doughty where we kayaked earlier in the week


On final at East Sound


We had a great day trip and saw much of the San Juan Island.

Thanks to the Seattle based couple we talked with at Johnson Creek that told us about the Bakery just north of the airport. We got great sandwiches for lunch and bread for the evening meal.
