Friday Harbor to Lopez Island

Wednesday November 26, 2008
Lv: Friday Harbor, San Juan Island 1230
Arrive: Barlow Bay, Lopez Island 1615
Lat: 48 26.34 Lon: 122 52.31

The day started off rather gloomy, but by the time we were ready to leave Friday Harbor, the sun was shinning and we could see that the wind was picking up. On our way to Lopez, we passed Whale Rock where a large colony of sealions reside. Living space is at a premium, and the large males were able to take the choicest spots, while youngsters had to scroung around for avaliable space at the tide line. They were making lots of barking and grunting noises as we passed, keeping a wary eye on us.

Haven't seen the killer whales yet.......
