Island shots & island sights….
Lots happening around here – here’s a sampling from around San Juan Island:
The kindness of kids: Nine-year-old Emily Atwell is a two-time donor to the Locks of Love program…she’s an inspiration to us as she cut her hair so that folks who have lost their hair to cancer can have wigs made from the donated locks. Way to go, Emily!
Smiling faces in town, with hats….photo by Aaron Shepard (thanks, Aaron!)
Thanks to Donovan Williams – he & his wife caught this harbor seal at Lime Kiln having dinner (yum octopus!) a couple of weekends ago.
This week’s Road Scholar program focuses on hiking in different parts of the islands…yesterday they ate lunch on Mount Constitution after a four mile trek around Mountain Lake on Orcas, with Mount Baker in the distance after the morning fog mostly lifted. The program is run by Skagit Valley College/San Juan Center here on the island, and brings some 900 participants to the islands from April to October each year.
Knitting on the ferry….good to see how Jeannie’s coming along, on the interisland ferry yesterday.
