Dad visits with Linda, one of my friends who is so fortunate to live on the island. I tell her that she lives in paradise! Such beauty she's able to enjoy! From her home she can see Victoria, BC a short distance across the sound. Three pods of Orcas whales live in the San Juan area and are frequently sighted from a spot near her home. Within the past couple weeks another baby whale was seen (and duly documented; the population is well-protected and observed by marine biologists). Island living is as romantic as it sounds (until it's time for some power shopping at Walmart and Costco, then it's a trip by ferry to the mainland for supplies). Linda is always sharing stories of the 'rich and famous' who visit the islands, thinking it's a nice place to get away from the rest of the world. Linda was a gracious hostess and tour guide. Thanks, Linda!
