We stayed two nights in Friday Harbor, and each day woke up to a heavy fog bank greying the skies and the Washington State Ferry boats blasting their fog horns as they came in and left their docks.
I cooked us a scrambled eggs with ham and cheese breakfast. We then spent most of the day hanging around the boat – Dave reading his book, and Stella doing some laundry and washing dishes. She swears she was having fun. Honest. You know you’re in a really good place if even those tasks are enjoyable!
Lunch was as expected – really good fish and chips at a small cafe that had seating on its roof up above the Ferry docks and gave a great view of all the ships coming and going. In the afternoon we walked all over town, window shopped, and enjoyed some ice cream cones. Dinner, on the other hand, was very unexpected. We found a place called “Kung Fu Pizza” that served both pizza and Chinese food. Hmmm. Both were surprisingly good. The day ended with reading and watching an old movie. Fine, relaxing day.
I couldn’t believe it! Thursday morning we actually slept until 9:45! I must finally be relaxing a bit! The body clock is finally getting switched over to island time. The morning started off very foggy again, but it’s beginning to burn off, which is good – because they have a 1pm checkout time. We’re disappinted that we didn’t see Popeye the harbor seal at all yesterday or today. He’s such a cute fellow, but you can tell he has only one good eye. The little statue of him in the park area even has one eye painted kind of silver.
Well, we can see a ways now, so it’s time to get moving on. On to Rosario.
