Here is an entry from my journal.
Dated July 17, 2014, Thursday
I arose at 4 a.m. and readied myself. I spend 45 minutes at the Business Center and was downstairs at 6:15 ready to shuttle to the Ferry. Victoria Clipper was our mode of transportation to Friday Harbor.
The ferry left the Seattle Wharf at around 8 a.m. We were issued vouchers to select from an item from the breakfast menu.
The ferry arrived at Friday Harbor at 11 a.m. We remained on the Ferry to transition to the Whale Watching tour. Whales were quite active. We saw countless breaches. We witnessed the L-pod featuring the leader, Cruiser and his aunt.
We debarked at Friday Harbor around 2:30 p.m. and checked into the hotel at 3 p.m. We were greeted by local host, Mary Kalbert. Upon arrival we walked downtown. I rented a bicycle from Discover Kayak tours. I rode around the harbor briefly and visited a really cute consignment shop. I returned to the hotel for dinner. Early bedtime to prep for an early bike ride Friday.
