Home Leave 2015! San Juan Islands Birds

Paul and I took an evening and joined a Bird Cruise up in the San Juan Islands. It was run through the whale watching tour, but hosted by the Port Townsend Marine Science Center. We headed out from Port Townsend towards Protection Island at 6pm. About an hour into the cruise we reached the island and started seeing numerous birds and seals.
