Another wonderful spot on San Juan Islands! My wife and I walked around the park enjoying the beaches, the views and the exploration. Saw lots of eagles, took in the fresh air and sights of nature at every turn of our heads.

There were a couple of unmarked pull offs overlooking the ocean from where we saw 2 sets of orcas. Beautiful part of the island.

We practically were blown right off land just off the parking lot and out by the lighthouse. But, resiliently pushing on we were rewarded with an up close glimpse of several bald eagles! The poor old lighthouse is in major disrepair but sounds like a...More
