Multi-day family trip to Orcas Island

August 5, 2017 – We had guests on board for a two day charter. Cut the lines to sail north to explore the Orcas Island coastline. Heavily forested cliffs, over 10+ bald eagles, jellyfish, porpoises and seals. Smokey skies and another pink sun illuminated the day.┬áJust south of Lawrence Pt we dropped anchor and then dropped our passengers off at their hotel via our Bullfrog tender to enjoy their night before an early start tomorrow morning as we return back to Friday Harbor.
