Awesome Day in the Boat

What a great day today was! Casey ended up having to work today so Chance and I just got some things done around the house this morning and the plan was to head out to Ferndale for the Old Settler's Days Car Show, Parade and Carnival, but then my Dad called and invited us out on the boat instead. Brodie's husband Jeremy had to work too so all of us headed up to me Dad's to meet up with him.

We headed out of Squalicum Harbor and into the waters of Bellingham Bay. The water was like glass and wonderful. We were headed around the east side of Orcas Island when we were greated by a pod of about 10 orca whales. They were incredible, they jumped so close to the boat that it even spashed the sides.

My Dad is so good with Chance and let him dirve the boat teaching him to navagate into the waves and hit them head on. We docked on Orcas Island and enjoyed a great lunch at the Orcas Island Hotel and then headed back to Bellingham.

A rough life indeed!
