What a picture perfect day we had! Departing from County Park, we paddled south towards Lime Kiln State Park to drink in savory views of the Olympic Mountain Range with a dash of Mount Rainier on the horizon. Turning our course north we rode on glassy water with the flooding tide as our conveyor belt, seeing circling bald eagles, purple ocher sea stars, and a few curious harbor seals. The views of the Canadian coastal ranges shone as clear as they've ever appeared this summer, and Mount Baker revealed a sliver of its alabaster crest just above Mount Constitution. Another day to be fondly remembered in the San Juan Islands.
