Explore Friday Harbor/Roche Harbor (Sunshine only)

Please read all the information given below

Will not wait for sleepy heads.

Let's visit Friday Harbor and Roche Harbor.  There are some cute shops in Friday Harbor and the view is beautiful  But Roche Harbor is a gem.  It has a wonderful view, walk ways and history where we can easily spend 3 hrs, enjoying the area.  Many opportunities to take pictures and just relax.

For a late lunch we can enjoy the New England clam chowder at the waterfront local restaurant in both Friday Harbor and Roche Harbor

For dinner, if we want to, Friday harbor offers several waterfront restaurants from which we can choose from.

It is a approx. 2 hr drive Anacortes to catch the ferry, which we cannot miss.  We cannot  wait for late-commers. Those coming by bus, please indicate so in the comment section.

I need 3 additional people to make this trip happen by car to share the ferry cost and gas cost.

And it is an ALL day event and will come home late.

Please be engagement free.

Since this is a somewhat pricey adventure, I appreciate your commitment to make it possible for other people as well. 4 people to one car is a must.

Depending on how the group moves we may be able to visit Orcas island as well, which is no extra ferry fee.

Let's make the most of this trip and have a great time.

Bring cameras, suntan lotion, water and snacks with you.  Wear comfy shoes in which you could do an easy hike and flip flops to change in for downtown walks.  Be prepared to have a mini vacation.

Price:  $38 per person for my car.  This includes $22 ferry cost plus $15 gas money for 200 miles roundtrip (150 from Seattle to Anacortes and back and driving around island(s).

Schedule: Ferry leaves Anacortes Terminal at 11:50 am and I cannot wait for sleepy heads.  I will leave promptly.

    Hi All, I had a great time with all you, except one (I am just joking, it always fun to say that [or am I {no really I am just joking}]).

    Here are some pictures from my camera phone that I took, it will take me a few days to pull the pictures from my camera and clean them up. https://plus.google.com/photos/106198433260205291011/albums/5895345836060582641?authkey=CKWLpaOSlf7Q7wE. I will post the other ones later if anyone is interested in them.

    Is anybody interested in carpooling from the east side at 8:30 am ?

    Currently two people are interested (Andrea and me).

    We can meet at Kingsgate Park and Ride. Anacortes terminal is 1.5 hours (with no traffic) from the Kingsgate P-R.

      Why drive to the Aurora transit center at all? To pick up more people?

    I live in Oak Harbor. I would like to park my car at the ferry terminal and walk on. Will a car be necessary at Friday Harbor? If yes, is there enough extra space for myself? How do we all meet? What about mobile phone numbers?

    June 27, 2013

    • Gabriele P

      Paul, check your email and re-read the information above. It will give you the answers.
