Day 1 Salt Point to NYC to Seattle to Anacortes to Orcas

A long day!


View Seattle-Victoria-Vancouver Island on TadHerman's travel map.

The itinerary says it, but this was a stuffed day.

We got into Seattle and took their light rail system into downtown. Renting a car (for 5 days) from downtown vs the airport saved us $120. It was easy. Spent some time at REI getting a nice windbreaker for Sue for the whale watching trip. I did the same last year. It is July, but we both have a long fleece and the windbreaker out on the water, and it was still cold!

Lots of wildlife...plain and simple. Just enjoy the pictures. Click on each picture for an enlargement and a caption.

There is this interesting optical illusion that I have now seen a number of times out here. It is called Fata Morgana. It stretches things on the horizon, making a lot of high cliff islands, and upside down floating islands.
Fata Morgana-Whatever that means!

Back to port. In all, it was a 5 hour tour.
