a trip to patos island

i’m posting about what i did today! this is my fastest post ever :D. i’ll catch up on missing posts soon.

today mike and i joined nina from wheeling it for a morning trip over to patos island to check out the lighthouse. thanks to beau at outer island excursions it was a smoothe 20ish minute trip over.

in 1792, spanish explorers galliano and valdez named the northernmost of the san juan islands, Isla de Patos (Island of Ducks), due to either a rock formation on the eastern end of the island that resembles the head of a duck or to the numerous ducks found on the island. the lighthouse was built in 1893.

what’s even cooler … patos island is the northwestern-most point in the lower 48 states!

this post’s theme: less words, more photos!
