Our journey took us north. As we motored through the San Juan Channel we cruised along and observed the Sika Deer and Mouflon Sheep on Spieden Island. We continued north through the scenic Cactus Islands and across the border into Canadian Waters.

Have you ever seen an eagle taking a bath? Well, we did! On the south side of Spieden, our national symbol had found a hollow in the rocks and was enjoying a fresh-water bath. He was not shy.

On through Johns Pass and a view of harbor seals as they were enjoying the better-than-forecast weather as much as we were. Northward, past Stuart Island, and East to the lighthouse on Patos, and more harbor porpoise and bald eagles south of there, including a nesting pair of eagles.

Making our way south, we came through the Wasp Islands before turning into the San Juan Channel and back to our home dock. The islands were gorgeous today: dramatic views with silhouettes in all shades of blue early on, turning to blue skies on our return.

A great group of people onboard, representing all corners of the US and two gentlemen from Germany.
