A Day for Adventure WITH PICTURES

We met Bruce's brother Clint and his wife Jan at the Bellingham Airport and quickly hopped into their Cessna airplane to be jetted across the waters to the San Juan Islands.

here we are snuggled up in the back seat of the plane. we're a little giddy about time with family, sunshine and a plane ride!

Our majestic Mt Baker, and our Twin Sisters.
The plane ride is actually pretty short if you fly directly from airport to airport. Clint took a longer--scenic route out to the islands, circling Lopez and San Juan before coming into Eastsound on Orcas Island where he had rented a car for the afternoon. We drove into Eastsound and enjoyed a leisurely lunch at Rose Cafe. After lunch we drove through Moran State Park and up to Mt Constitution. Then it was back down the mountain and back onto the plane.
