September 25, 2017 – Gray, cloudy days can be beautiful in the Pacific Northwest especially when you’re out on the water. Excellent lighting for photography where the colors of nature just pop. So many harbor seals hauled out on Flattop and Skipjack Islands – both National wildlife refuges. Cross the border into Canada to explore the Saturna Island shoreline beginning at Monarch Head, a dramatic cliff with honeycomb sandstone holes embedded within. Bald eagles, great blue herons, black oyster catchers. Java Rocks with its own busy eco-system. Dinner in New Channel drifting in peace and tranquility followed by chocolate birthday cake!
