Am attending the Ferry Tales program - leaving Fri. Harbor the morning of the 12th - looking for anyone who might be going in the direction of Seattle proper that day. Carol Robbins

I am visiting my daughter in NE Seattle and need to get to the Anacortes Ferry Terminal on Sept 3, 2014. Is anyone in the San Juan island program interested in sharing travel to the Ferry on the 3rd and back on the 6th ? Pam Major

We have signed up for the Seattle and the San Juan programs. The 1st ends at noon on Sept 13th and the 2nd starts 5 hours later at 5pm. Anyone interested in sharing travel between the Red Lion in Seattle and the Anacortes Ferry Terminal?
