On the Way Home

On the way home fromm Friday Harbor yesterday I caught this picture of Turtleback Mountain on Orcas Island with a dusting of fresh snow on its back. At this angle you can see how it got its name.
And this young seagull landed on the boat and rode along with us for a while. This is the third time that a young seagull has ridden along with us at about the same place in the last couple of weeks. I can't be absolutely certain it is the same bird but my suspicions are that it is.


  1. What a lovely journey back home you must have across the water - it looks so exciting Margaret.

  2. It is lovely to commute by boat through the islands. And trust me I much rather be out there even in stormy weather than on the freeway!
