Bald eagles in flight. I took this sitting in the back of the boat in the sun. It turns out the harbor is also a good place to watch eagles.
This is the guest dock at Roche Harbor. Our afternoon involved coffee, a tiny bit of grocery shopping, donuts for The Mr. and being lazy. I actually laid out on the boats lounge chair and had a nice nap. Isn't that what you are supposed to do when you are on vacation?
The largest barnacle I have ever seen was attached to our guest slip. It was about three inches at the base. I eventually plan to post a video of all the little shots I got throughout the weekend and I got a neat movie of this guy fanning the water for food. Click on this photo and look at his feathery fingers, what amazing creatures God has made!
Amazing Crown Imperials. I had never seen anything like these before, and had no clue what they were until my neighbor lent me a book on bulbs. Aren't they stunning?
The view from our table at McMillin's Dining Room, where we belatedly celebrated our 7th anniversary which was April 6th.
This was the plate that both The Mr. and I ordered. Mashed red potatoes topped with steak and a skewer of 4 intertwined prawns both hot off the grill with a side of vegetables. This was so good my taste buds wont settle down right now as I am typing this. It was so much food that I left about 2 oz of the steak on the plate.
Okay guys, this is for you if you have made it this far after all the flowers and swooning over food. The Mr. thought this was a neat boat because it was a fishing boat that looked more like something the police or coast guard would be driving. It was pretty cool.
On our way "home" to Stuart Island, we drove past Speiden Island but I didn't get any clear shots as you can't get that close, it was dusk and we were zooming by. Above is a mother nursing her kid.
