Photo of the Day

01-04-barbara-baneyAboard the Pintail's Annual New Year Celebratory Cruise  Photo by Barbara Baney

This year's photo of the Day series will be a bit different from last year's. The same rules - must be taken this year and in the county - apply with one exception. Once a week, a historical photo along with a link to a 2013 copy of San Juan Islander will be posted as the Photo of the Day. I hope you enjoy this updated feature. Happy New Year!
