#49 Friday Harbor

It was a sunny and breezy morning in Roche Harbor. Today we departed for Friday Harbor on the other side of San Juan Island. The Wild Blue has been there many times including the entire summer of 2006. It's about an hour by boat over the north side of the Island. We arrived mid-morning and temporarily docked awaiting permanent moorage to open up.

Friday Harbor is a busy marina in the summer months. See Friday Harbor for more information.

While waiting for our moorage assignment, Willie prepared fresh-fried rockfish sandwiches. Delicious!

Soon we received a slip assignment and docked near the marina entrance close to the downtown. We roamed ashore helping Joe gift shop for his family. We soon tired of that and adjourned to the local pub while Joe continued his gift quest. After an afternoon nap we dined in town at Vinny's Italian restaurant.
