envy! I'll try to keep it under control but I envy (in a good way!) your trip...these pictures help/make me feel it more! :)

Glad you like them! We took the ferry from Antacordes, Wa to Sidney, BC, then drove to Victoria. I didn't have any pictures of the drive (and when we landed we were already in our car, as we were close to the front of the ferry.

I chose the route, thinking that an open water trip (ie, Seattle to Victoria) might be a bit too scary for me.)

I was amazed at all the people who live in the San Juan Islands. We looked for Orchas while we travelled, but didn't see any. I wasn't too keen on going whale watching for 4 hours. . .so we skipped that possibility.

Wonderful photos - don't we live in some of the most beautiful country!?

Yes. Except me... Ha ha. Sage brush all around here. Well, there are some hills to the northeast, and some way to the west. . .but we do have the Snake River.

Whale watching: I'd love to go whale watching if it didn't involve a boat--on the ocean.
