While I certainly enjoy visiting big cities and filling my days with museum visits, shopping, walks around busy streets and destination restaurants, I will take a trip to a quiet island in a heart beat. We didn't need to fill our days with activities, they happened to just fall into our hands. The family car ride that turned into a Bald Eagle watching adventure, breakfast on the deck that quickly had us running to the rocks to view the whales and a stop by the lavender fields that turned into a game of chase.

They kids absolutely adored Popeye, the one-eyed harbor seal that likes to hang out around the fish market. I can't believe that he was eating out of their hands! He usually hangs around the docks daily and we were lucky to see him a few times during our trip.
