My happy place... 50+ species this weekend including L pod and K pod of the Southern resident killer whale population, four groups of transient orca, Dall’s porpoises, minke and humpback whales, elephant seal, phalaropes, marbled murrelets and osprey #endangeredspecies#orca . Thank you @karacgolden for this candid shot 🖤
This past school year, I was able to take an amazing class trip to the Pacific Northwest. It was my first time on a plane, first time seeing snow, first time out of the country... my world literally got a lot bigger. We got to do so many experiences that I'll never forget, but I think the highlight of the trip for everyone came on the last day when we got to see wild orcas in the San Juan Islands. These 3 are from the T-124 pod, and from left to right are the adult son, matriarch mother, and the ...
“Love doesn’t need all the rules we try to give it.” -@bobgoff - Loving another human being is so simple, yet why we make it so complicated?🤷🏻♀️ - We find justifications for why we don’t have to love others. Maybe they hurt you in the past, maybe they don’t look like you, maybe they don’t have the same beliefs as you😔 - The rules and justifications we have made mean nothing🙅🏻♀️ - Jesus had no rules on love. He lived a live where anyone and everyone deserved his love🙌🏻 - Jesus had no rules. He didn’t love one group of ...
Besides great farm raised oysters, craft beer, distillery and local seafood and greens, @sanjuanislands has an abundance of beautiful #seakayaking, #roadbiking and . We can see the Olympic Mountains and Mount Baker from our kayaks! @nrsweb @stellarkayaks @wernerpaddles
Explored around the San Juan islands yesterday. Saw a humpback, a couple harbor seals, and identified two orca whales from K pod - Sonata and Cappuccino. I fell in love. Too bad my hands were frozen solid to get good pictures... lesson learned!🐋 #pnw

Thank you all for spoiling me with all the birthday love 🎂💕 Our first family getaway to San Juan Islands was a success ⛴⚓️Well, as successful as it can be with a 2 months old 😉 #eastonah#getaway . . . . . . . . . . . .
To combat the pressure and stress of the upcoming work week, I treated myself to a full day kayaking trip around the San Juan Islands. 🛶 It was money and time well spent - only turned the phone on occasionally (in airplane mode) for photos and just enjoyed the day, paddling smoothly through the water with a refreshingly pleasant and smart stranger I enjoyed getting to know along the way. I took in the incredibly beautiful sites, 🌋 and felt overwhelming grateful for the opportunity. 🙏🏻 I generally like to move so fast, but today was about slowing down the ...
The first of many sister trips 💕 #sanjuanislands was amazing, so much to see and explore. So many hikes and activities we couldn’t even fit it all in 😂 I loved being able to spend so much time with my sisters 💕 even though we might have all gotten sick on the last day and gone home early, it was still a fun and much needed sister trip ❤️😷
If I could be anywhere in the world rn it would be here. Frolicking around on the little island where I met my best friend for life. We never took those moments for granted but gah, to go back and live like this [with what we know now....] that would be magical. If you could go back to a moment in time, being/knowing who you are now, what would it be? Please share! I LOVE moments like this 😍😍
