Makeshift Anchor

We took a family with four small children to Turn Island today.

It was a lot of work:

A full hour drive to the ferry in Anacortes.

A little over an hour ferry ride.

An hour including walk to the boat and eat lunch before leaving the dock.

A half hour transit to Turn Island.

Three rowboat trips to get everyone ashore.

(Remember we have to do the reverse to get home)

Time on the beach: Priceless.

Sometimes the travel is just as much fun as the destination.
This rock was there to make sure we had a dingy to return to...
