They serve thoughtful, unique menu items like flatbread topped with locally foraged mushrooms and ricotta, it was delicious along with the mixed greens.
Our tour took us up into Canadian water, right off the coast of Satura Island where we were able to find some transient orcas. Our naturalists said it was a mother, child and a male. We were able to watch them for a good hour and every time they came up for air it was an exhilarating experience.
It was equally entertaining watching the reactions of the people on board. This one lady, I referred to as Laura Bush, freaked out when she saw an eagle, but maybe it was her first time viewing such a majestic creature.
Once we were back on shore, we came across this adorable little boat called the Lady Bug. I have a propensity for tiny things because it is the equivalent to a smart car, but on water. It was just TOO cute.
Hungry from all that fresh air, we enjoyed a clam chowder dinner at Downriggers.
After dinner we hopped back on the ferry and made our way to our campsite. Washington Park is located in the perfect place, because it is only a mile or so from the ferry terminal so we were able to walk there.
Even if I rode this ferry everyday I would not get tired of the constantly changing blues and grays.
Washington Park is located on the tip of Anacortes, so this was our view as we took an evening walk around the park.
