Cruise San Juan Islands and lunch in Roche Harbor

***Extended RSVP window to 8:15am on Friday morning to allow up to 3 more people to attend***

The Summer of Tim kicks off formally with the first San Juan Islands Meetup!

Weather forecast for central San Juans on Friday as of Monday night: Variable winds 5 kt or less. Mostly sunny. Wind waves 1 ft or less. And forecast for central San Juan Island:Mostly sunny, with a high near 67.

Apologies to the folks who have to work on Friday but I promise there will be more Weekend San Juan Island events later this season.

Meet at Shoreline Park & Ride at 8:30am. Carpool to Anacortes (about an hour) and launch boat at Twin Bridges boat ramp (under Hwy 20 just east of Anacortes). Quick stop on Blakely Island for coffee and fresh donuts. Cruise islands to Roche Harbor. Lunch at Hotel de Haro. Cruise between Islands and hopefully spot some Orca Whales?. Return to boat ramp between 4-6pm and back in Shoreline between 6-7pm. I have room for three or four passengers in my 4Runner and a total of 6 passengers in the boat including myself (20 foot Cuddy Cabin). Requested (but not required) contribution for gas $20-40 per person (for the tow vehicle and the boat). Will see seals, Bald Eagles, Doll Porpoises, and maybe Orca Whales...

    Yeesh... I bet we walked right past this boat when we were walking the docks there last weekend.­]

    Awesome meetup! Beautiful day and the water was quite calm for the sound. Got to see so many beautiful places and a couple of seals from a distance. Thanks to Tim for driving (both the car and boat)!

    I tried to get a friend to come along, but everyone I talked to had to work. Anyway... see you in the morning!

    $20 seems a bit low for this trip between driving and a long trip up there and back. We'll pitch in at least double that per person.

    Tim, can you post and/or text an address for the park & ride? I'm not familiar with it.

      Oh, nevermind. I am apparently completely blind and stupid and didn't see the huge thing at the top with the address. :P

    The guest on my RSVP is Zac. Once he makes his own RSVP, you can delete my guest. If there's not much turnout from the meetup group, I may have a friend who'd like to go, but I want meetup people to get first priority. :)

    Wish I could be there, but I have to work. I was up in Friday Harbor this weekend though and it was beautiful!

    I committed my Kenmore Social Artists group to do Tuesday this week instead of Wednesday. If they don't come through with a decent number of attendees, I'm going to reschedule my group for next week and hop on board with you (provided there is still space of course!). Thanks so much for a great day out on the water, Tim. You rock! or should I say Roll (since waves tend to roll not rock, lol)........

    Ugh. Wish this was on a weekend. Would love to go and to learn where that launch is.

    Sorry, working that day! Definitely will be in on the next outing you do up there if it's a day I'm off work. :) You guys have fun!

    Ah geez, what a great trip! Work calls, though. If it were any time 4th-7th, I'd've been there for sure. :)
