Friday Harbor Marine Biology Station - A Flatlander spends a summer Learning about invertibrates in the San Juan Islands

 In June, 1969, I deselected going to my Carleton College Graduation, and picked up a drive away car on Lake Street in Minneapolis, to make the 3 day drive out to Everett WA, where I dropped off the 1967 Rambler ---Stops along the way, included Joel Hesby's, a Carleton College friend whose home was in Volga SD, then to Dick Adam's Home, who sang with me in the Carleton Singing Knights, and I visited his Big Timber MT home ------I hitched hiked to Anacortes WA, and then made it here to the D-6 dorm building surrounded by Douglas fir   ---

 One of the slides I took of the dock and harbor at the Marine Biology Station supported by the U of Washington  - Close up of Douglas fir cone ----
 The boat used by the scientists to discover specimens was the Hydah ---I labeled the slide "Dr Fontaine from U of Victoria with slimy Pteraster with Gil Robinson from South Africa, back to camera Chuck O'Claire "
