Maple Bay is a charming little community that is far enough away from the big cities that the people are even more friendly. We had one lady come up to us and offered to let us use her car for a few hours if we wanted to see more of the island. You sure don’t see that kind of hospitality very often.
If you don’t want to take a boat to get to Maple Bay, you can always fly. These came several times while were were there.
Time to head back to the US and it looks like Kelli is in a hurry with her hand on the throttle like that!
On the way there, we saw some Harbor Seals…
…and some amazing scenery. The bottom one is Turn Point Lighthouse on Stuart Island. This is about the same spot where we saw the pod of Orcas 3 years ago. Nothing this time around.
Cleared US customs at Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. The it was off to Lopez Island for the night, swinging on our anchor.
