I was booked on two boat rides to see whales one on 30th afternoon and other a full day one on 1st July. I reached the correct office this time, at around 9.15 AM they had announced that weather was bad and have to cancel the trip. Later they gave an option of going for a half day trip towards south to see humpback whales. I chose the option as I did not have much of a choice. Boat ride was not very bumpy but there was lot of fog and air was very chill. After 2 hrs of sailing we saw a humpback whale, though not so great images but for record I saw my first humpback whale. As two plans were merged the boat was full and I was sitting next to the captain.In the mean while I explained whole story to Nate and Nate spoke with Boating Company office and arranged an afternoon trip as well. So, I stayed back on the boat, they had arranged an amazing vegetable sandwich for lunch. Afternoon as the weather was relatively better we headed towards Friday Harbor to see Orca Whales. Our Captain took the boat at a jet speed to get to Friday harbor in time, it took 2 hours for us to get there, on the way we saw a Minke whale.
That evening I drove to Port Townsend and clicked images of the old historic town. There is an old antique boat docked which was used in those days to intercept Pirates boats / ships.
At the top of the peninsula is the quaint town of Port Angeles. This is a little town that has everything. We spotted big box stores and locally owned markets, chain restaurants and hole-in-the-wall eateries that use ingredients from local farms, not to mention both big beautiful mountains as well as gorgeous coast and beaches. The waterfront district has lots of great places to eat, viewing piers of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and a ferry to Victoria, B.C.
