Ice Cream on Friday Harbor's waterfront

I’m Eva and I’m eight. San Juan Island is my favorite place and Orca whales are my favorite animals. First I get to take the ferry to come visit (make sure your Mom & Dad make reservations!), that’s so cool. There are puzzles on the tables that other people have started and if I get tired of that I can walk (no running, yes, Mom!) around the ferry boat about 12 times and then we are in Friday Harbor.

Mother's day ideas San Juan Island

The next best thing to breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day, is breakfast, brunch or an early lunch on a beautiful island in the Pacific, before a day of whale watching, hiking, exploring the Pelindaba Lavender Farm or the San Juan Island Sculpture Park. Regardless of whether you are an early bird or wake at the crack of noon, Friday Harbor has the place to nourish and pamper you and yours on Mom’s Day.
