The Best of KING5/Washington… and the winners are…..

This spring KING5 (that’s a TV station in Seattle, in case all you do is look at YouTube) held a “Best of” contest. The winners were announced last night, and included some nice surprises: The Whale Museum was selected Best Museum, Pete & Erin’s San Juan Excursions (here’s the website) took top honors in the Outdoor Adventures/Whale Watching division, while Tim Thomsen’s celebrating his 29th year with San Juan Kayak Expeditions with the most votes in the Eco-Adventure section. The Best Place to Kiss was the Washington State Ferries.

The awards for Tiny Town and Best Tourist Town went to other folks besides Friday Harbor, and Lakedale was not selected as the best Place To Skinny Dip. Here’s the complete list of winners – click through it & see if I missed anybody local.
