San Juan Archipelago, Washington State, United States
A society formed in 2009 for the purpose of collecting, preserving, celebrating, and disseminating the maritime history of the San Juan Islands and northern Puget Sound area. Check this log for tales from out-of-print publications as well as from members and friends. There are circa 700, often long entries, on a broad range of maritime topics; there are search aids at the bottom of the log. Please ask for permission to use any photo posted on this site. Thank you.


Bald eagles are known for hanging out where they have
a good view. This one on Spindle Rock has the view
locked in while seeking a bit of lunch and
gathering sticks to weave one of the largest nests
stretching five to six feet across.
