Friday Harbor Trip:  pg 1 PWT-FHR leg | pg 2 on ground in Friday Harbor | pg 3 FHR-PWT leg 


After relocating from the CA Bay area to our new home in the Pacific Northwest, we found ourselves enjoying some spectacular weather.  In July I moved my RV from old home base at RHV in San Jose to my new hangar at the Bremerton airport, PWT, and with the rest of the family and household goods move mostly done, it was time to do a little aerial sightseeing!  My wife is still a reluctant flier but she does enjoy the San Juan Islands and her mom's home town of Friday Harbor is a short half hour RV trip from Bremerton, so off we went on a beautiful 80F day with light winds and not a cloud in sight.  Great lunch trip!  Pictures linked below, broken into 3 pages due to number of photos. 

There are 3 pages to follow on this trip; one for flight out, one for time on the ground in Friday Harbor, and one with flight photos from homebound leg, including some sightseeing along the way.  See links above and below for the trip pictures.
