Our 10 Year Anniversary Trip to Washington State: Day 3

On Day 3 of our trip, we got up and had breakfast at the New Leaf CafĂ© which is part of The Outlook Inn. Then after breakfast, Jake had a whale watching excursion reserved for us! It was amazing! We saw humpback whales, harbor seals, bald eagles and a porpoise. 

The conservationist told us before even getting on the boat that they had heard about humpback whale sightings close by so they took us directly to where they had been told they'd be. It was one of the coolest things I've ever experienced.

Burrows Island Lighthouse, one of the many lighthouses in the San Juan Islands.

Harbor seals.

A juvenile bald eagle.

An adult bald eagle.

After our whale watching adventure, we took another adventure through Moran State Park which was just a little ways down the main road from our resort.

Moran State Park was beautiful. We hiked to a couple waterfalls and drove up to the highest point on the island... Mt. Constitution.

A tower on top of Mt. Constitution that you can go up in for an even better view. 

On top of Mt. Constitution there was this cute little gift shop...

And this cute little ice cream stand! The ice cream was so good. Jake had Toffee Coffee Crunch and I had Sugar Shack S'mores.

After leaving Mt. Constitution, we headed back to our room to relax before having dinner at Cascade Bay Grill at our resort. It was another great day!!
