Obama to designate national monument in San Juan Islands – Seattle Times

Congratulations to those in the San Juans who fought for years to get these fabulous locations down near Cattle Point and the Iceberg Point designated. Having sailed through Cattle Pass, (after having been checked out by an Orca who swam up and dove under my bow), I can attest that it is a most spectacular island location. I add it here because I know that many of you sail from here to the San Juans, and feel like it’s part of the neighborhood.

President Obama plans to designate a national monument in the San Juan Islands, handing a long-sought victory to island residents and members of Washington’s congressional delegation. Obama will sign a proclamation Monday creating the monument, a White House official said Thursday.
